Baking Custom Build Images

I am having some troubles understanding the custom build images:
1. Is the functionality for this built into our company's pricing plan? are there additional costs?
2. I have set up a test project that installs a bunch of stuff and as per the docs added the APPVEYOR_BAKE_IMAGE: your-image-name-here env var, but after about 5 to 10 tries using UI and or YML to get this going, the image baking doesn't seem to happen?
3. if i ever get an image to bake, will it show up under the dropdown for Build images?

I am trying to make sure that things like chrome and its relevant driver for selenium testing gets baked in so we don't have issues with version mismatches, along with postgreSQL 14 etc are baked to the testing VM. Any help will be appreciated.
