I just recently got asked if I could do a wedding cake for next year. 

I have never made a cake that big, so I’m thinking on doing a 14, 11 and a 7 in? Is that enough? 

Also, help with pricing , how much do you think I should charge for this!?

Pricing is dependent upon a million things, but my starting price is $4 per serving, which is what I would charge for this cake with no add-ons, since the flowers are real.

There are dozens of cake serving charts on the internet.  Just Google Cake Serving Charts and pick the one you like best.

I agree with Sandra.  There are sooo many different factors that effect pricing including cost of all ingredients, packaging, car licenses, fuel, taxes, equipment like mixer, tools, lessons, and on & on.   You need to  know what you will use as a base price.  It will be different for every person.  Our suggestions might not be enough or can be way too much— only you can figure out what you are worth.    Also pricing 6 months to a year ahead can be troublesome.

I also think your estimate in terms of portions is off... just the 14in bottom tier will serve 78 guests! Actually, a 12-9-6 will already serve more than 100 guests, and trust me it will be waaaay easier to bake, decorate and handle than the one you have in mind!
