I can't get the picture to post, so please look here to see what I am talking about: http://www.cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=gallery&file=displayimage&pid=1205045



I have 13 NFSC with RBC. Around $5 for the supplies used to put the bouquet together. Never done a bouquet of this size and at a loss on what to charge. Would appreciate some feedback!

For loose cookies I charge $3 each. If this is for family, you could charge for supplies and then something like the $3 for each cookie. Somewhere in the range of $50. Depending on complexity and design, you could see prices go much higher for 13 cookies in a bouquet. I don't know where you live, but that's just an idea for you.

Wow, you did a great job. I made my first bouquets for Valentines Day and my cookies were similar in size (3-4 inches) & amount of decorating/detail to yours. I only used 5 cookies per bouquet and got $20 from my friends. I used less cookies just to keep the price down as I too live in a small town. I didn't have any orders, I just made some up and took them to work to "show" them. I think I would want $25 for my 5 cookie bouquet if I was actually "in business".

You don't say what size your cookie are.

I charge $1/inch. So lets figure you have 4" cookies. I also charge $1/pkg, since you have them individually wrapped that is 13 pkgs also. My buckets I use are usually around $1 each with some tissue paper so I add on $7 (I have this already figured out for boquets up to 6ct-anything over I figure on a per order basis as my tins don't hold many over 6 well so the container may cost different)

13x$4 = $52
13x$1 = $13
1tinx$7 = $7

Total = $72

And yes I do get this with no hesitation. Have you looked at cookies by design prices? I am still cheap-and I have delivery within 7miles included too!

Thank you!

I was wondering, in case, anyone were to ask me when they see it. This one is not being sold. And the cookies are 3-inches.

Thanks again!

OK updated price with the 3" cookies would be $59

When looking at CBD prices make sure to remember most of theirs are 4". But they only offer one icing so if you get into multiples it is more time and more detail so you can still charge competitively.

I charge $48 for my 12 cookie- bouquets, So- I'd probably do that size for $52. I know you didn't ask... but next time- try to stagger the heights of the cookies- cut the front ones shorter so you can see them all...the cookies are lovely and should be seen icon_smile.gif Just my 2 cents!

Yeah, I still haven't gotten the hang of arranging the cookies correctly. However, these are better than some in the past. So maybe, I am getting better at it with time!

Thanks for the advice!
