Cake cost?

I'm new to all this, and still have plenty of time to meet with the bakery about the cake, but I have no idea what a cake costs...and I know it varies by place to place....Just curious what design, layers, etc. that made the price of the cake!  Thanks! =)

    I'm getting married in SoCal, and my baker is charging me $8.50-$9/slice. I'm so jealous of you brides with $2-$4/slice cakes!! But my price is including the sugar flowers and piping on each tier, so I guess that's pretty reasonable for Southern California. So, our cake is going to be approximately $1200, but it's one of our few indulgences for our wedding, so I don't mind so much.
