So  this was the first wedding cake I have made. Rustic buttercream with fondant/gumpaste flowers. I made it for a friend of my daughters, a labor of love and all I charged for was the supplies. Plain vanilla cake and vanilla buttercream. I am just wondering how much something like this would cost from a professional? I definitely am a total amateur and know that a professional job would be much better than mine, but I am truly curious!!

I agree with everyone else, lovely cake for a 1st time wedding cake.     Often the greatest compliment that can be offered by friends and family is for them to say "Wow!  You should totally sell your cakes!".   These same sweet people have no idea that this  cake could take a kazillion hours, plus the ingredients, plus the gum paste tools and training and practice, plus a whole bunch of icky clean-up.
