So, for a little context, I'm located in NY and I own and operate a small baking business from my home. However, my uncle owns a more old-fashioned baking business and on occasion, he'll call me in for customers who want fancier cake art and fondant. However, our price ranges differ drastically...so it's a little awkward when he asks me to come in and do work because sometimes my price points for what I do are almost as much as the cake itself! It's a little tricky to navigate...that being said, I got a request to recreate the cake below. Now, what I am providing is literally just the decorations. I will be passed an already frosted cake and what I will have to do is as follows...

  • Airbrush the cake blue and orange 
  • Create the fondant cards, spider, and little symbols and place on cake 
  • Paint on the flames + lightening with gel food coloring 

I do not have to provide the pop figures! 

So my question is...what would you all charge? I'm thinking around $50! What do you all think?
