Cake Pricing

How much extra should you charge for cakes that are extremely large and/or detailed? I did these unicorn cakes and charged $5.00 per serving (they were both 8 layers and 42” in length). I fell like I only broke even based on the hours of work that went into them.

I saw your post on another site, Glenda, and I was frankly shocked that you charged so little for this delightful and huge cake! I am a hobby baker and I’ve made cakes like this, but it was my choice as a gift, not for money. I don’t think anyone in my part of the world would be willing to pay what I would charge to do this as a commission job, at least $1,000.
