I am just getting into the business and have been asked to do my first wedding cake for a friend. SHe wants a round 4 tier with real flowers, iced in buttercream like the cake in this picture.

Looks farely simple to do but she is wanting a quote and I have NO idea what to tell her. ANY help would be appreciated. I live in central Illinois. TIA

Figure what your price will be per serving and times that by how many servings the cake is. In Ohio the low end is 2.50 for buttercream so I figure 100 servings the cake is 250.00 Flowers are extra.
