What would you charge for a recreation of this scene? 2 ft. x 1 ft. and then they are going to purchase the figures that go on top. How much would you charge for that? I have no idea where to begin on that one. I know that this question is asked all the time. She doesn't care about the servings. Just about how big etc.

Is the cake just the pedestal or whatever that snowwhite is on and the background is going to be painted or whatever, or are you going to make a cake wall to decorate?

I have no idea about the pricing either, but do you have a normal pricing scheme? Why not follow that? Even if she doesn't care about the servings, doesn't mean you can't use them as your pricing guide.

Yes. The cake woud be just what she is laying on and then painting the background around it. The reason I am not using the normal pricing is because this is going to take me much longer to work on then a regular round cake so I don't want to lose on this one but I don't want to overcharge as well. Just trying to find out what everyone thinks is reasonable.

Is the cake going to be filled? 2 feet x 1 foot Two layers of cake and one layer of filling will probably feed 75 people, or more. (I know she is not concerned with servings). Plus you are going to paint a background. I would not charge any less than $225-275. Probably more in the $275 range. If the cake is going to have more layers, I would charge more.
Just out of curiosity, where is she going to get Disney figures that large? If you do this cake, please make sure you post a picture. Good Luck!

That is going to be time consuming so depending on if the cakes are filled I wouldn't charge less than 6 per serving

I am curious icon_confused.gif Did you do the cake? Are you going to do the cake? If so did you figure out what to charge? Inquiring minds want to know! icon_lol.gif
