I'm getting a lot of inquiries about pricing so I thought I'd add some basic guidelines. I am a small independent company that makes specialty cakes that resemble those shown on television shows like the Cake Boss and Ace of Cakes. Unfortunately, neither of those shows advertise how much they charge for their cakes. Carlo's Bakery (the Cake Boss), starts his cakes at $8 per person. Charm City Cakes (Ace of Cakes) charges a bare minimum of $1,000. My cakes don't quite go that high. My cakes start around $2.50 per person with a minimum of $75. A per person price is based on how many people the cake can feed not necessarily how many you need to feed. So if you're having a party with 30 people but want a 4 tiered cake, the price is based on the cake not the guest list.
Delivery is available to most locations around the city. It is $50 an hour round trip from Squirrel Hill according to Google Maps.
Fondant cakes, like this, have a starting price of $4.50 per serving and go up, depending on the intricacies of the design.
Focal creations (between 4-8 inches high) can take anywhere from two to six hours to make. They start at $25 a figure depending on the size and intricacies involved. For example Minnie Mouse sitting down would cost less than Minnie Mouse trying to balance on her own two feet. Smaller figures, like what are featured on the Coach cupcakes and on my Barnyard cakes range between $5-$10 each.
The price of a holiday cake depends on the type of cake.
Cupcakes begin at $1.25 each for a plain cupcake with icing and sprinkles.
Gourmet Cupcakes are $2.50 each and each flavor must be ordered by the half dozen. Gourmet Mini Cupcakes are $1.50 each and each flavor must be ordered by the dozen. Mixed trays are available upon request.
Standard cookies are $18 per dozen. Cookies with intricate designs (such as these Star Wars cookies) are $24 per dozen for a single style, or $30 per dozen for mixed design styles.
A fondant cake, such as this one, starts at $5.00 per person.
A buttercream cake, such as this one, starts at $3.50 per person. Sugar Flowers, Bows and Cake Toppers are extra.
A 3-D buttercream cake starts at $4.00 per person. A 3-D fondant cake, like this tent, starts at $6.00 per person.
A cut out cake such as this one starts at $2.50 per person for a single thick layer, and $2.75 for a double layer with a filling. The price will vary depending on the intricacy of the design.
