What do I charge for my work

Hello I do cakes wedding cakes birthday cakes etc and also catering and I wanted to know how do you really charge for your labor. I mean how can you say how long it is gonna take you to do a cake or cook a meal. Also I wanted to know if you are doing a small party is $10 a plate not enough to charge am i suppose to wait until they give me their menu and price the food and see how much that is gonna be and then estimate how long it is gonna take me to cook it and then give them a price? With the cakes I charge 2.50 a slice if it is just a butter cream cake but if it is a fondant cake i charge 3.00 I have the price for my fondant so I always add that in but do i do the same thing estimate how long it is gonna take me to bake and decorate it and then add the price in for my labor? Please help I am really confused
