For me, in my rural (and very economically hit area) I'd charge 60$.

I charge $3.00/serving for fondant covered cakes. So, 36 guests (6" and 8" round) x 3 = $108.00. Then another $50 for character cutouts. Total would be $108 + $50 = $158.00

But, since it would be illegal to sell this copyright cake I would charge $0 because I wouldn't take order.

SO I take it that Sponge Bob, Twilight and the Cavaliers are not copyrighted?
just wondering.

Okay, let's please not get the rant started again on copyrighted images! If you have any questions about copyrights, do a forum search and you will have more posts than you will probably want to wade through. OP, you will definitely want to check this out before you sell the cake! Not trying to sound rude, but that thread got rather hot a week or so ago and life's too short to bring out the hostility on such a beautiful day.

I didn't sell those cakes, but thanks for assuming I am a hypocrite.

I made one for my son's first birthday. Some friends asked what I would charge someone else for that and I said $80. They all looked at me like I was crazy! So apparently $80 is too high for my area.
