I'm doing a cake for a customer who is interested in having gum paste calilliles(sp?)put on the cake. I have no idea how much to charge for them, because to me it sounds like she doesn't want very many which makes it even more difficult. Any suggestions??

How many does she want? Figure out how long it will take to make them and pay yourself for your time and materials, that's how much you charge her.

Hi, i just took a order for a cake that has roses and dogwoods (fillers). I charged 2.00 per rose and .25 for each filler. Customer didnt mind, total was only 35 dollars for the cake, they didnt want to use real or silk, and i wasnt going to do them for free. I agree see how long it will take and go from there.
