That is a very specialized design that not many people would go to the trouble of making for a customer.
What sizes are the rounds?
What did you use for the waterfall?
How much do you have invested in it......supplies, ingredients etc?

My 'off-the-cuff' suggestion would be nothing less than $200 w/o knowing the above info.

The waterfall looks like something you could reuse. I mean it has to have a pump etc. I would say the cake is $_____ , and oh you want the waterfall feature...that's and extra $75.00-100.00, plus a deposit of $____ (whatever it would cost you to replace it.) hard to say without knowing how long it takes to install.

Rounds were a 9 inch and 6 inch so would $200 still be a fair price
