I recieved $40 for 24 cookies - 12 sugar and 12 oreo truffles. Did I under charge? I was unsure what to charge and did not want to scare away my first big order... icon_redface.gif

That's $20/dozen. Sounds like a good price. The real answer lies in pricing out your cost and labor and then seeing how much profit you've made. thumbs_up.gif

Depends. If the design on the cookies is complicated and time-consuming, maybe not such a great price. If the cookies are simple and easy to crank out, it's a good price. I try to figure out how much I can get done in an hour, and do the math. Twenty-four cookies completed in two hours? That's $20 per hour...pretty good! But twenty-four cookies that take five hours to complete makes it only $8 per hour...not so great. If you're happy with the price and the time involved, than you were successful.

cylstrial - sorry for the delay - she wanted them before Feb 1st - so I just made them and decorated them last night. I am TIRED! ha. I have to pick up my box and then it is just a matter of shipping and praying! Oh- and not forgetting to take a pix!

There's no delay! I didn't know when they were due.. so I just thought that I would check!
