^^^ 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.
