Lots of detail there. How much time did you spend on this cake? I ask because I know a 6 inch cake is not very big, so I would not advise you to charge based solely on serving size.

I would charge minimum 90.00.

 

50.00 is my 6" cake minimum, 15.00 per figurine, and 10 maybe for the tree stump.. So 90.00

AI didn't keep track on how long it took- but it took a while to make all the detail.

Legally, the answer is zero, since Alice in Wonderland has a copyright and/or trademark.  Read the many threads here regarding making and selling character cakes, so that you know all of the risks before deciding whether or not you want to sell them.  

 

Either way, cute cake!

AThe original Alice in Wonderland story and original illustrations are in the public domain, so they (or your own original interpretation of the characters) can be freely copied without permission. Disney's version is still protected copyright, so if you copied Disney's version of the characters you would need Disney's permission before selling the cake, giving it to someone else, or displaying it publicly.

ACan you make it and give it as a donation where you don't profit from it?

YES!

ACopyright infringement occurs when the infringing item is sold, transferred (with or without compensation), or displayed publicly.

Of course the chances of Disney going after someone who donated an infringing cake are pretty slim, especially if no pictures are posted publicly connecting the donor with the cake.

Yep. I love AIW requests, and put my own spin on them. I could do AIW cakes every day and never get bored!icon_biggrin.gif

This cake may be small but it has alot of fondant and detail. I would probably estimate how much my ingredients were for this cake and approximately how man hours it took me and go from there but I would definitely not do it for less that $90
