I’m currently working on starting a cake business and am looking for the best way to price a cake. I’ve looked at a few formulas and calculators for cake prices etc. But none of them I really like.  Please recommend your favourite way of pricing a cake. All suggestions welcome. Thank you.

I am a hobby baker and sell very few cakes, so am not concerned with overhead, etc.  If a cake is very simple and easy to make, I charge $4 per serving, if it is more elaborate, I charge $5 or $6 per serving with add ons for sugar flowers or models.

I created a spreadsheet that I used in my home-based commercial kitchen. It is free to try for 14 days.
