Cake Decorating Community - Cakes We Bake

I've been asked to bake a cake for someone who is willing to pay... I know this might not sound odd but I've only ever decorated cakes for family and close friends and always done them as gifts! The "Customer" is looking for a 2 tier star wars cake w/ a lot of figure-ens all around the cake and I was wondering if I could get some input on what you all would charge for something like this! The cake is iced w/ fondant, and 2 tiers! Thank you so much this really helps!

There are many discussions on this topic here already. If you do a search on pricing, you'll find all kinds of advise.
For people to help you, you'll need to indicate the sizes and/or number of servings. Most people charge per serving.

Cake pricing in a nutshell

Cost of ingredients and materials (always get a deposit for what you want returned)
what your market bears (what other bakers in your area are charging)
How much do you want to make
Are you going to make the figurines or buy them? Filling and cake flavor? Size of the tiers...width and height? What will the cake look like without the figurines?
Thank you Sherry that was mostly what I was looking for! What I should be charging for!
