The December/January issue of Brides Magazine has pictures of several wedding cakes along with the prices. They are nice cakes, but nothing most of the posters on this thread couldn't do. The lowest priced one was $9 a slice.

Cake Central Top Picks
Pricing is the hardest part of our jobs. I know I still undercharge at times. With the price of ingredients, I have learned to be more conscientious of my pricing. This is a cake I made last weekend. My customer actually drove about 3 hours from her home to pick it up. The inside of the cake is yellow and purple zebra stripes. The cake is covered in buttercream, and the tiger eye on top is a buttercream transfer. The stripes on the bottom layer and the letters are made from hand made fondant. Bottom tier is 8", top is 6". I live in Central Louisiana. I charged $150 for this, because it was not that time consuming, and the detail work was really easy. I've learned that when someone "balks" at my prices, I remind them that I do "specialty" cakes, made to order and use fresh ingredients. If they want a cardboard tasting cake that has been frozen and pre made icing, they should go to their local grocery store or Wal-Mart!
