^^^ That's a chart that will give you your batter amounts and etc.
Consider charging her about $4 a serving and $35 for delivery within 10 miles, $1 more per mile after that--mapquest the address for the mileage.
About those fresh flowers--see if her florist will supply them. If you have to order and purchase them I suggest using a Costco or Sam's. Be sure that you protect the cake so none of the flower juju gets in there.
Is this a tower of roses type cake where each tier floats on what looks like another tier of solid flowers or just some flowers scattered hither & yon?
I'd charge double for the flowers if I have to purchase them. I'd get them from a big box store though--very reasonabley priced in the first place. Very important that you order them in advance.
According to Wilton, she ordered 184 servings, so charge her for 184 servings, not 150.
Thanks so much for the respond...i did look at that wilton chart i wasn't quite sure at first which guide to go.. that 184 i was thinking..thank you so K8memphis.she wants the flowers to go around the cake...
