I would think that $80.00 is reasonable considering the supplies and time. I hate to judge my own work. Is this too cheap? Too expensive? Thanks for looking and thanks for your input. icon_biggrin.gif

I think that sounds about right, considering that the crown and candles are bought, not made. Now if you start making that kind of stuff out of fondant or gumpaste, you'd better raise the price accordingly! icon_smile.gif

How big is it? What is the going rate per serving in your area?

I would charge about $60-$75-since you would buy the candles and crown.

I agree with costumeczar about charging more if you actually made the candles and crown--then charge more.

The Bottom is 4 layers of 9" rounds. The top is 6" rounds. I am still practicing the handmade tiara and letters. I'm just not THAT talented yet. Thanks for the input.
