Basic Pricing Information for Basic Fondant Cakes
Hello, Thank you for your interest in NYC Birthday Cakes. If you are here, we assume that you are having a party and are interested in a custom cake. We have put together this basic pricing guide to help choose your cake design. Custom cake pricing largely depends on 2 factors. The size of the cake and the complexity of the design. So lets go through some of the most popular cake shapes.
Ready? Lets Go!
A round cake is the most common custom cake. Their sizes range for 6 inches to 14 inches. Below you can find the starting prices for each size. This will be the base price before decoration. We also provided examples of pricing for a basic fondant design and a more complex design.
Basic Fondant Round Cake Prices
- 6 Inch Round Cake (Serves 4-6 People) $50
- 8 Inch Round Cake (Serves 8-12 People) $80
- 10 Inch Round Cake (Serves 15-20 People) $110
- 12 Inch Round Cake (Serves 25-35 People) $150
- 14 Inch Round Cake (Serves 40-45 People) $200
2 Tiered Fondant Cakes
Sculpted Fondant Cakes
Sculpted fondant cakes are harder for us to provide you with basic pricing because they all are so different. I am going to provide a 2d example and 3d example or liquor bottle cakes. 3d sculpted fondant cakes are much more expensive than 2d.
2 Dimensional Sculpted Fondant Cakes
All 2 dimensional sculpted fondant cakes will feed a minimum of 15 people. The cakes have to be at least this large so the design looks proportionate. ( We do not want to create a basketball cake that is the size of a baseball )
This design to feed 15 people would cost $185. If you would like a larger bottle cake to feed 25 people. It would be $250.
3 Dimensional Sculpted Fondant Cakes
You must be very interested in custom cakes if you made it this far in our custom cake college course! =)
3 dimensional cakes are almost impossible for me to provide basic pricing for. They will feed a minimum of 20 people.
Lets us this liquor bottle cake as an example. This cake design is one of the most basic designs for a 3d custom cake. This cake to feed approximately 20 people would cost $300.
I had enough of custom cake college, Now what?

What can I do to reduce the price of my custom cake?
Ordering TMNT plastic figures to do a similar cake as the one above would save 100s of dollars!
We could use gum paste flowers that we keep in stock instead of recreating those flowers. Most of the time they are even most beautiful then the flowers in the picture provided.
