 I know it seems enticing, but it may not be worth the expense of ingredients and your time (baking, plus standing there selling). Please rethink. And if you take the ingredients as a business expense, you are not allowed to also use them as a donation.

So people from the southern US are more likely to prefer this cake.   For ten years I owned a bakery/cafe in central New York. I sold my shop and moved to the southern US, then opened a bakery-sandwich...

Pricing your cakes. 
 Creating shortcuts is a necessary part of running a well-organized, efficient business. Some work, some don't; but take educated guesses and move ahead. 
 This is my suggestion, too. But if your cake batter is thin, chop the chips into small lightweight pieces so they don't sink.
