Have a request for a three tier sandcastle cake customer recently saw a two tier I did for a sweet sixteen I priced my cost with delivery $150. Is 400 too much or not high enough? I will have to assemble at halls premises. Thanks in advance

What are the cake sizes and how many ppl are you planning on serving (assuming its round). This might help others to give you an idea??

Beginners, be sure to parrot advice and get your post count up as fast as you can. After all, it's not what you know, it's what people THINK you know.

Our starting price would be $1160, depending on the cake design it would probably be in the $1300-1500 range. Plus delivery ($1/minute round trip) and setup (also $1/minute, in 30 min increments).

152?!! Even 16, 12, 8" round serves more than that.

According to my chart, 16" sq. 120, 12" sq. 66, 8" sq. 28. 214

It's never "just cake!"

 

You may get a cake for $way to little but you won't get this cake!

232 servings x $3.00 per serving= $696 + $90 for decorating time (6 hours at $15/ hr guesstimating) + $50 delivery/setup + $30 for SPS= $866

 

rough estimate. not sure how much detail you were going to put on the cake...
