I have done SOOOO many cakes for customers and seem to have the pricing perfect for regular cakes. I received my first order for cupcakes today. I have no idea how to price them. Can I get some ideas from y'all as to your cupcake prices?

I think 1.50 ea should be the cheapest up to 3.50. Definitely depends on the details. Hope this helps.

I would say the same you charge per serving of cake.

I agree with the above posts........depending on the amount of detail. Don't underestimate the amount of work for each one. It is a serving of cake. Good Luck!

ditto...whatever you charge for a slice of cake, that's a cupcake price. Add extra decoration and filling costs and extra for the amount of time you will handle these precious creations!

Ingredients-wise, a standard cake recipe that would normally make 2 8 inch layers makes 24 standard size cupcakes. You'll need at least 1 1/2 times as much buttercream and filling to as much as double the quantity. Time can be approximately as much as it takes to make that 8 inch cake to much more, depending on complexity.

So yes...I think in the $2-$4 range (and up if they are very elaborate) is appropriate.
