Tell me what you think of this cake?  It was started at 5am this morning and just finished it up and is being delivered as we speak.







And just a side question how much would you pay for this. I'm just wondering because they bought it but I don't know what to price it.

Thanks so much

Oh! it's all cake 100% edible nothing but the crumbs left over.

I think the norm is $3-$5 per person/slice.....so figure out haw many it'll feed and multiply...voila Grin
at least that's what I've heard from my cake decorating friends who are by no means professional but you'd never know... I think this cake is fantastic and the little flames are too cute!!! oh and the fire hose spelling out congrats is absolutely brilliant!

The other side of the cake says 16 years.


And thanks for the comments I really wanted one of the trees or bushs on fire.

I believe pricing is:
Supplies divided by depreciation
times number of hours
times rate you work at [say $10/hour etc]

Amazing work!! Is the house and truck seperate cakes?

Thanks everyone for your comments i just love reading them all.

Yes they the house and truck are separate little cakes.  The house is one 6" square cake cut and stacked and a tiny bit of sculpting.  And what bushes??... They were suppose to be trees Smiley but the weight of the tops squish them down and turned them into bushes. So OK the "bushes" are mini lollipops decorated with the star tip.  I used lollipops because they would have the stick to place it in the cake. So I learned something if you want bushes use the mini pops but if you want trees find something with a longer stick so it can reach the bottom of the cake and not squish down with the weight and turn into bushes Smiley

Thanks and I know that's what life is about learning. My mom and I always try to make our cakes 99% to 100% full edible. So it's hard to think of other ways to make something but using edible matrial. We want to start a business but we don't feel that our cakes are up to the stander that people would buy without feeling cheated.
