Had a referred customer contact me about doing cookies on a stick for party favors. She said she'd like carousel horses. The size of the cutter is
4" x 5.5". (She had some decorated cookies I had done for another customer for a baby shower and really liked them). She's balking at $2/cookie (including cellophane bag wrapping). Wants to bargain it down if it's smaller. Those babies look time consuming, to say the least. Really should have told her $3/cookie. I hope she sorta goes away. I'm really weary of customers like this.
Anyway... does anyone have any pics of carousel horse cookies? I found one beautiful one here but am having trouble finding some others for reference.
(please don't beat me up about my price... I'm aware I quoted her too low this time. I do more cakes than cookies so I get rusty on my price quotes )
Thanks for any tips!
Why am I not surprised she's balking at the price? Sigh. These people have no idea!
For design inspiration, have you checked on-line for carousel horses? I also know that some Wilton Yearboooks have done simple carousel horses. I use a pattern I got from some clipart, but I haven't made any recently enough to have digital pictures. Hopefully, someone else will come thru for you.
OMG those carousel horses are too cute.
Deanna, those are absolutely beautiful! I saved your pics to my file w/ your name on them.
Ladies, thank you for your replies!
Tell her that is the price and you won't do it for less. They look like a lot of work. She will never be able to find anyone else that will do it cheaper.
