 This is the best advice yet.  I can't even think about the issues of this cake (unhappy customer, whether they get a refund or that fact that you have no idea of how to price your cakes yet) OP- what are you doing selling cakes in the first place?!   Sorry if you're offended by this, that is not my intention but it just has to be said.
 Well since pregnant belly cakes are so over (were they ever 'in'??)  and way past trashy, I would not charge too much for it. Probably not even what you paid for in ingredients. It's just not worth it. You should probably just not even bother selling something like this...I'd give it away.

Sandra Lee's 'food' is straight up foul. She makes carnival food look like 4 star Michelin, that's how low her food standards are. Yes, it's very clear that she has incredible bad food taste and zero culture.    She has no business being on TV doing anything with food- and it should not be acceptable. There is nothing to admire in her.    Thankfully, she is practically unknown outside of America, the rest of world would have a good laugh (and get sick at the same...
 I think that you should have given her a refund because the colors/design are nothing like what she ordered/wanted. Getting the color somewhere close to Yankee blue is nothing at all like what you're claiming above- that you can't possibly duplicate a cake. That's a really weak excuse and has nothing to do with getting the color close to being right.  Also,  you're like the cheap FB cake maker now (how much 4 dis?). On the other hand, a 3 tier cake for $100, you do get...
 Exactly! Nancy- once you actually do write up a good business plan (don't sugar coat it either, based on it real facts/figures), I think you'll soon realize that you are not going to be picking out the new 6 Series as a cake decorator, you know?! Their salaries are not high by any means. I'm sure as a teacher you're earning much more. So take that into account before you switch over a lower earning profession and give up the one that is paying you a living wage.  Can you...
 wow. you sound angry and hostile here. Maybe you need a break?
I agree w/ what PastryPet wrote, maybe taking an art class to learn about color theories, artistic composition, how to recognize and use these.     I feel that is missing in your cakes/design. Without understanding these concepts and how to apply them correctly, it makes the cakes look very amateur- doesn't matter how smooth the icing may be.    WFCS, has these is their designs- and that is appealing and adds to their popularity.    Also, an actual class in person...
 Seriously? No offense to the creator of that dish..but that looks like hard core stoner food. He should apologize to Mexico and their cuisine for associating that particular dish with their country or their food. 
oh that is really shameful. I think they lied to the teachers too and said that they gave back refunds to everyone when instructor asked them about that.    They're a really scammy/shady operation. Ironic that we're all using their cake forum too.
