Pricing

Here is some general information on how we price our cakes here at Center Ring Cakes...

PRICING A CAKE! 

Prices for a Center Ring custom designed specialty cake varies based on artistry, complexity of design and number of servings. We don’t have a general price list because each cake is completely custom made and a one-of-a-kind design. Cakes are priced according to several different criteria. Our base price per serving gives you a general idea of the starting price of your cake. Factors that will add to the price include cake sculpting, gumpaste flowers, modeling or other gumpaste décor.  Detailed piping, painting, beading, airbrushing, or other time consuming design elements such as architectural skeletal design & engineering for custom sculpted cakes will add to the cost of your cake. Pricing for these specialty cakes can range from $5.00 to $30.00  per serving.

We find most clients choose designs that range from $12.00 to $15.00 per serving.

Once all these elements are finalized, the cost of your cake is determined by the price per serving multiplied by the number of servings. All our cakes are uniquely designed by Cake Artists/Designers, Mara Mari Cristiani & Gena Cristiani. We do not duplicate the work of other cake designers.
