1st of all you have to realize most bakers/decorators are very busy on Saturdays :) 

You don't tell us anything about size, where you are located (big city, rural or ?)  etc.  so it's hard to give you a price guide.

It appears to me to be a 10" round w/a bit cut off the bottom so charge  I suggest you charge no less than $3 per serving.  A 10"x2" round serves around 20 so no less than $60 but more like $75.  That's my guess/suggestion.

Exactly. Final touches, deliveries, a squeeze of family time. Mostly just those of us who are so addicted that we check in between it all.

Also true that it is difficult to tell You what Your cake is worth. What size is it? What flavor/filling? Are you in the states or should we use a currency other than US dollar (many friends on here from the other side of the pond).

If you do a quick search on pricing, you will find at least 100 threads describing the homework you need to do. How much are your ingredients, what is the fair market rate for similar skill in your area? What are all of your true costs?

Search Jason Kraft. He's written a wonderful blog with useful information. There's a link in his signature.

It's never "just cake!"

 

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