I made this for my daughters birthday, the bottome tier is 12 inchs, middle is 9, top is 6. all fondant and figures are the marshmallow fonant, and i used homade buttercream icing underneath, and for the waterfall. Im new at "selling" cakes and have no idea what to charge, personally, I think I am undercharging! If you could give me a ballpark range of what this is worth, It would be appreciated! Thanks so much

Are each of your tiers one layer 2" tall?

No one can give you a specific price that you should charge for this cake. It was a lot of much do you charge for your time? Only you know the cost of your ingredients. Only you know what your market will bear...we don't know where you are located. These are the kinds of things you need to figure out if you are going to sell cakes.
In my area a cake like this would fetch $500 plus (assuming each tier is two 2"' layers).
HTH and good luck
