For our first cake, let's do one of my favorites.

This is a 6" round white with white choc mousse & fresh blueberries, 8" sq. white with white chocolate mousse & fresh strawberries, 14" round..blueberries, & 16" sq. fresh strawberries.

 

The lace is hand piped detail of the bride's gown.  The 14" round is covered with edible pearls.

 

What would you charge?

AWow! I want $6. Hopefully someday!

Side note: I charged $100 delivery/set up in this case. The venue is gorgeous, but tricky with 2 sets of stairs.

Before you get excited over my price, keep this in mind: I've been a wholesale business. (I'm just building my website to go retail). So right now I get $3.00 p.p. from my vendors for this type of decoration.

My Quote would be for 251 servings , $1570  . I am in Australia . 

 

Bear in mind though , that I don't do buttercream so my quote would be for a fondant cake . Although on the odd occasion I do do buttercream ( never for wedding cakes ) I charge the same as fondant . I use ganache under my fondant.

I don't offer fresh fruit, so my version of that cake w/out the fresh fruit would be around $750ish buttercream. It's buttercream, right?
