Can't help on pricing, but it does look like it would be a major pain to ice, and make it look nice.

from what I found a quarter sheet serves 20 to 24 so start with that, then figure out how much of the cake you carved away, half or a quarter, then charge for the remaining servings based on a per serving price.

example: started with 24 serv, carved away 50% of cake, left with 12 servings, @ $6.00 a serv. (which is what I would charge) is $72.00

it's a custom carved cake so you should charge more than your normal price.

i know this price seems high but you have to consider that you are carving away a bunch of cake that you still had to bake even though the end result is smaller

It might be a more efficient use of the cake to not carve it in one piece. what I mean is cut a template for each "petal" and then work it like a puzzle to minimize wasted cake.
