I know I have read that a lot of people charge 80-100% for dummies cake. (if you would charge $100 for that tier then the dummy would be between $80-$100) As far as as fondant flowers on for cupcakes; I don't know what the cost of supplies and time are for you. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.

It would be around $300 for me at most. . . since most of the cakes are dummies. I am careful when I let someone add a dummy because I don't want to be making them sheet cake to compensate for the dummies, KWIM? I have a similar cake I am doing NEXT September for a wedding and there's also lots of hand-piped writing all around it and the bottom layer only is dummy. My quote for her is $390. (I am a beginner so I charge around $2/serving or $2.25 if fondant covered)
