Very nice job. You need to consider the materials, time & labor, overhead cost just to start.  You don't say how many people this cake served or what size the tiers were and how large of a cake you would be making for the other person.

I can charge (my market will bear) between $275 & $350.00.  Charging for the cake, all the detail labor, all the little toys including the crown with the pic and whatever else I'm not seeing.
