Can anybody give an idea what is he best way to place the flowers in cake. I made cakes with cascading flowers, but never as many as this one. A bride email me this picture and I have no idea how much to charge for something like this. The cake is for 350 guest.
Any ideas will be apreciate it.
Here is the link
That cake is by Sylvia Weinstock and her cakes start at $10/serving, with higher prices for more elaborate floral work.
I can't even begin to imagine how long that many flowers must take, but she probably has a whole staff working on them.
I know, it will take forever to make that many flowers. Any ideas what will be the best way to place them on the cake.????
I usually do wired sprays and then use straws or posey picks to stick them in the cake...but I've never done one with that many flowers.
For this kind of undertaking, DecoPac would be my best friend! I'd buy as many pre-made as I could, then make the rest. To see how many you need, stack dummies with the separations and such, and wrap a piece of yarn around it to see how long of a garland you need. Lay it on the counter and lay out the flowers on a portion of it to see how many cover it, then multiply to estimate how many total.
If your cake is going to look that good, then charge what she charges, minus 10% for name recognition if it isn't, charge less! If it will be half that good, charge half as much.
Thank you both for the advise. I appreciate it.
Please post a pic when you are done!
