Those are cute! Isn't the rule $1 per inch for cookies? I'd say at least $30 including the delivery, more if those cookies are large (4in or bigger)!

I just must say those are SO CUTE!!

I can not help ya out on the price. I am really bad at that. But if I had to guess I would say $20-$25.

Do not charge any less than $30 for that bouquet! It's adorable! I make a lot of cookies/bouquets (my large 7-cookie bouquets are $32, small 3-cookie are $1icon_cool.gif and unless folks actually bake, decorate and assemble them, they have NO idea how much work goes into them!

I have to agree with Cambo....no less than $30 for the bouquet ..then I would do the $10 for delivery. I would pay at least $40 for this bouquet.

I think it is so adorable!!!

Twinsy. I did not even notice the black eye.

You could just tell them the kids got into a fight in the car ride. (just kidding) icon_lol.gif

TOO CUTE twinsy!!! Is that a gift bag? How did you get them arranged in it? icon_confused.gif I really like that idea. I have been using flowerpots and styrofoam.

qtkaylassweets Posted 26 May 2006 , 2:50pm

$30 is a good price! I have been charging $2.50 per cookie but It is totally not making me anything considering how long it takes! I sat down and figured it out, with the baking, rolling, cutting, decorating, and bagging the cookies, I make about maybe $4.00 an hour!! icon_cry.gif

People really do not understand the time it takes on cookies!!!

Rule? I would say suggestion.

My handpainted tulip cookies I am currently selling for $10 per cookie.

MikeRowesHunny Posted 27 May 2006 , 8:58pm

I didn't mean rule as something set in stone, more as a 'rule of thumb' (suggestion). I'd still get laughed at if I tried to charge even that here! If you can get $10 per cookie - you go girl, more power to you, they are lovely - just don't move to The Hague icon_lol.gificon_biggrin.gificon_rolleyes.gif
