    That's a beautiful cake. I hope you don't mind me asking, but what did you charge per slice for that?

    Thanks, I don't mind at all you asking.and if you need help with anything else just let me know I would be happy to help you along .

    The cost of the cake was $3,000.00 but the thing was this could feed a little over 400 and the very last tier was a foam cake the customer wanted a lot of cake left over for the staff & for guest to take home .

    The wedding party was only 150 . So you can look at it two ways 3,000.00 into 400 would be 7.50 per person or 3,000.00 into the 150 would be 20.00 per person
