Thank you SO much!
Any advice on inserting real flowers into cake for a cascading effect as in this picture?  What do I need to tell the florist or request from him/her?  Food safety?  Is floral tape safe to wrap around floral picks and then insert into cake?  I heard some folks wrap the floral pick in masking tape or regular gift wrapping tape...but I'm thinking this is not food safe.   How DO you find out if a product is toxic or food safe anyway???  
Can anyone tell me if there are any pros and/or cons to having an EIN # aside from not paying sales tax?  Do you pay the sales tax later?  How does it work?
Thank you!
Making a sculpted cake covered in fondant which calls for several edible images.  Has anyone refrigerated these before?  I also posted the refrigerating brushed embroidery question.

Yes, I hear you!  Well, the "demo" cake I am doing will serve as the birthday cake, so I figure some of the kids might just like to watch some of that. I am sure that after doing it a first time I either may never want to do this type of thing again or get better pointers for next time.
Yes, I felt like $250 was low too.  I already told the mom and have agreed on this price.  But moving forward I will raise this.  I will look at this first time as a learning experience and based on what I go through will adjust accordingly.  I also found where you can order kids chef hats and aprons pretty inexpensive and will offer as an add on for additional charge.   Thank you all for your input!  I love coming to this forum to bounce ideas off of all of you.
I have been approached to do a cake decorating party (2hours) for a kid's birthday (10 kids).  The idea is I would prebake little cakes, travel there (about 35 minutes drive), brings tips/icing/spatulas/etc. and show the kids how to decorate their own little cake (a 6"maybe?).   I'm thinking this could easily turn into: 3 hours of pre-event labor (shopping/baking/cleaning) 70 minutes travel round trip 2 hours for the actual event 1/2 hour clean-up after   Does...
