How much would a cake like this cost?? Mainly confused because of the amount of sugar flowers. I have no clue what to charge.

How long would it take you to make them? Would you consider buying them?

Wow those are a lot of flowers!  Do you have someone that can help you make these flowers.  Not sure how much you would charge in addition to  the  $/per slice you normally charge.  Would you charge an additional amount of money per slice.  If you normally charge just saying, $4/per servicing add an additional .75c per slice ($4.75 per serving)   I am just throwing that out there.  Unless someone else does it differently.

I think I wod do it differently. Decide how many flowers you will need accounting for any breakage issues. Determine how long it takes you to make each flower. Let's say you need 100 lillies and you can make 4 an hour (keep in mind I'm just throwing numbers out there for easy calculations). 100 divided by 4 means it will take you 25 hours to make the flowers. Multiply by your hourly rate, let's say $20 = $500 plus the cost of fondant, wires, etc. Add that to the cost of the cake.
I'll never fit in a size 6 if I keep having cake for breakfast.
