What should I charge to bake/decorate cakes?!

Question: What should I charge to bake/decorate cakes?
I've really gotten into decorating cakes lately! I have a lot of people requesting cakes, and I have no idea what to charge, I don't want to sell myself short, but don't want to over charge! I've seen where people use spreadsheets, but I've not done a spreadsheet in years! I'm sure I could figure it out, if I knew what to put in the cells. Here is a link to my facebook, which has some photos of the cakes I have done. If you don't mind, giving me some oppinions on what these cakes should cost! Thank you so much for your time and help!

My friend also bakes cakes, and what she does is she buys all the supplies, then multiplies that by three to make some money. the last cake she made, was a birthday cake, and it was three tiers, in which each tier was a different type of cake, and the icing was a different color for each. she also bases the price on how much work she has to put into the cake.
