I was wondering how much do you guys charge for cupcake towers.
Is there special price or do you just charge for the cupcakes ?
Thanks so much
if i have the stand that is needed, i dont charge extra, just a per cupcake charge (depending on what recipe/icing / decoration i'm using). IF, i have to buy a special stand, that is added to their cost. i also consider any ribbon, fabric, paper etc that i need to decorate the tower with.
i use styrofoam towers like this http://www.countrykitchensa.com/catalog/product.aspx?T=1&productId=628765 that break down and are reusable if cared for, and change out the ribbon. sometimes, i use the ribbon trim that has crystals that dangle, its a nice touch.
make sure to add in the extra time that it will take you to decorate the tower in advance (gluing ribbon etc) and charge for your supplies AND extra time.
