Thanks everyone!!! I got the cutter set at Hobby Lobby for $17.99 with the 40% off coupon
What cutters would I use for these flowers?
What do y'all use for this kind of bling and how do you make it stick to the fondant? Just when I thought the whole bling phase was nearing it's end............. 
I HATE doing deliveries so I try to charge enough to discourage it. Then if I do have to deliver, at least it's worth my while. Delivery - The delivery fee, when available, is $25 for orders within a 10 mile radius of Cakes by Vicki. Anywhere outside of 10 miles will be determined on a per order basis starting at $25.00 plus $1.50 per mile, round trip, for each mile over 10 from Cakes by Vicki. You are of course welcome to come and pick up your cake.

That's about $4-5 less than what a bakery in her area would have to charge" $2.25 is STARTING price for an undecorated basic flavor cake, iced and filled with buttercream. Minimum $60.00. Delivery starts at $25.00. Most of my cakes are buttercream topped with...
Yeh........you've mentioned your opinion a time or 200. The OP asked "how much would you charge for a cake that looks like this" and I answered. That's the typical rate charged by 15 or so bakers in my area.  We all agree that it's the pricing structure that we are comfortable with. We're a friendly group and all make decent livings doing cakes so it works for us.    Probably more helpful for you to consider answering the question that was asked?
