It really depends on where you are located and what people are charging for cakes and your own expertise..But I would charge atleast $5 per serving for this.Imagine doing all that fur with grass and star tips!!!

Thats the actual cake I made today for my friend. But I wasn't sure how much to charge actual people. It will feed atleast 15 people.

It should be around $80-$100 in that case...that turned out very cute!
(But if you carved it with 2 full sheet cakes,then I think it would definitely serve more than 15 and more than 100 bucks)

If you needed to try to decrease your labor you might try using the 3D ball pan. Fill one half of the pan full to make a larger shape for the body, and the other half not as full to make a smaller shape for the head. You will still have a bit of carving to do but not as much as sheet cakes. Just brainstorming here! Carving and piping is ALOT of work, I completely agree with everyone else. Your cake is adorable! Great job!

That dog is sure cute. I would charge at least $100.00 for that cake, too much work.

I charged $40 for this cake because it was for a Friend.. But she gave me $60 because she loved it so much! I thought it was sweet of her. I wondered how much to charge for cakes because I am getting into selling more and people asking me to do them. So I wasn't sure how much to charge. Thanks for your help.
