No one has answered because pricing is soooo hard.  It depends a lot on where you are, what you want to earn as an hourly wage and other factors.   Have you tried searching other pricing threads?   There often is a lot of information contained in those.

I would start at 150 and up. Depending if they want a really detailed cake,the type of filling/ frosting they want. Also how skilled you are. Calling around your local bakery's gives you a good idea about pricing.

Ditto to K8memphis on $4-$6+ per serving ($300) --DEPENDING ON GEOGRAPHIC LOCATION/COUNTRY/SKILL LEVEL.  Is that your cake or a photo for 'inspiration'?  Have you successfully done horizontal stripes on a cake?
