Well last christmas I made christmas mice for a friend and she took them to work. Well a lady at work asked her today how much would I charge for 3doz. Oh ya and she wants them on chocolate covered oreos. Sorry guys i'm still in the learning stage and since I have gone back to work I have not had time for cakes so I'm still not sure on pricing ??? Please Help
I made them last year too for the first time. I had sooo many orders it was so nice. Hope to find something different this year.
Anyway I charged last year $2.50 ea. I am not sure about this year with the cost of supplies high but economy low.
what are christmas mice?
Oh they are the cutest thing on earth!! Ok with so many talented people here I'd say that with just about everything I see, lol.
Ok, they are mice made with a Hershey's kiss and chocolate covered cherry. Ears made from almonds and all sit on top of a chocolate covered oreo cookie.
I don't have a pic, I sure hope someone does.
is that $2.50 each mouse?
Yes, $2.50 each mouse. And Sugarfrosted thank you for the link.
ohhhhh super duper cute
thanks for the link to the pic
its soo cute
Those are adorable!
Thank you for the link. Those are toooooo cute!!!
So Cute. Last year I made mice, this year I'll add them to an oreo.
What do you think could be used instead of almonds? I have a tree nut allergy...
You could pipe a bunch of royal icing ears, like a simple petal shape
Thanks! Or I could make them out of fondant/gumpaste....lol, I didn't have enough coffee this morning, so I couldn't think for myself,
Any suggestions for replacing the chocolate cherries?
Cake balls, pb balls, malt balls, plain fondant center, truffle.
The only thing would then be the tail. I first made them with cherries w/o the stem and used a toothpick, but the stemmed cherry just looks so much cuter.
I never thought about the tail...
Thanks for all he suggestions!
Thank You Guys!!!!
Sorry I was not able to get back on till today $2.50 is what I was thinking. I told her that a day after I posted but she thinks thats toooo HIGH??? I told her she could do less but don't think she will be ordering after all. Thanks for the input it helped I thought about calling her and telling her that I would do for less but not now!!!
don't feel bad for her thinking you were too high. i had a friend of my sisters who wanted some decorated cookies and i don't usually charge, but i don't know this person and she offered so who am i to refuse and i told her what i would charge and she said it was too much and i said whateva! to my sis. even if i needed the money i would never undersell the time and cost of what it takes to make them. so phooey to her and to your almost cust. who thinks your work and time aren't worth more! hehe
Good for you amy,
too many times people don't want to pay for whatever reason. Often times they just don't understand how intricate the smaller things can be. They don't realize that as in any other business it goes beyond cost of materials to stay afloat.
