Hi Maria

You certainly wouldn’t want to under sell your skills, so my best suggestion would be to look

at cakeulator. This is a calculating tool on Cake Baker site which enables you to calculate

The cost of producing a cake for the purposes of charging. Just google the site in and you’ll

it. Don’t forget to put in the hours you have spent and the hourly rate you want to pay yourself.

You have to be totally fair to yourself and not under charge, other wise there will always

be an expectation from clients to get cakes cheaper.

It really depends on your skill level and the amount of detail you add but

Truly Scrumptious sell their pirate ship for £125 if that’s any help!

The cakulator on the Cake Baker site was a great help in this regard thank you
