How much would you charge for this cake but with roses (not the bows and strawberries)?

Do you know the sizes of the tiers or how many it serves?

Pricing is SO dependent on where you live. The cake is beautiful!

The piping is gorgeous! Real roses or fondant roses? I assume you mean fondant roses. I think you should charge more for the roses than you would for the bows because the roses take a lot more time to make.

In NJ, based on a calculation of 150 servings, the base price would be $750 for the cake and additional $5 to $10/each for the roses. NJ is a high priced market so the price could be much higher here than even that. Are you in a high-priced area in Colorado?

square size servings
   6"   18   
   8"   32      
   10"   50     
   12"   72   

Based on the Wilton wedding charts I'd charge $4.00 X 172=$688 then I'd add in the price of the fondant roses depending on the size of the rose anywhere from $1 to $3 a piece. If they're the simple *rolled* ribbon style fondant rose. Gumpaste, individual petal roses would be much much more.

The best advice I can give you is to call around your area to local bakeries and ask them how much per serving for square tiers/with fondant roses.
