Howdy,

I have to make, roughly, (and simply) 1000-1300 cherry blossoms. I have no clue as to price them.

I don't have an airbrush, or anything fancy... just something very simple, but elegant for some wedding pies, yes pies... 200, 3" pies.

Anyone with a rough pricing?

It depends on the final look, but you could very simply cut a 5 petal blosson out of light pink fondant and let them dry cupped and pipe a yellow dot of royal in the center. I'd say $0.50 per would be good. Or you could pipe them in royal, but I don't like royal icing flowers on the whole.

If they want something more detailed then it would be expensive... for a realistic one I'd charge at LEAST $1.00 per. You could look into ordering them from a bulk GP flower site too...

Indeed, but if that is what they want they will have to pay for it. No delusions of grandeur allowed!! LOL!!!

If you aren't purchasing them, you should charge more than what they sell for (machine made), if you value your time and the talent for handmade.
