How much should I charge for cakes such as this? I'm just starting out and the only tiered cake I've done so far is the one in my profile picture. I am doing a cake similar to this and it will be 8" & 6" tiers with chocolate cake and buttercream filling. I have more orders for 2 tiered cakes and I just want to know what I should be charging. I'm still hesitant to tell people how much I really think, since I'm trying to gain clients and cakes for experience. Thanks to all who give advice. :)

ACheck out the Pricing Formula link in my signature below, generally pricing for a cake like that would be in the $3-7/serving range.

You may also want to read the Copyright Law article, since if you don't have permission from Disney you could get into serious trouble reproducing their copyrighted characters.

Also, if you don't know what you will be charging, you don't have orders. Be sure to get the budget of any potential customers to see if they can actually afford your prices.
