Can anybody give me an idea on how much to charge for the "martha stewart type" stacked cookie cakes?

I have three 2 1/2 ", three 2" and two 1 1/2" cookies with MMF and a small flower on top - in a 3x3x4 plastic box with a ribbon/bow.

I was thinking $6 or $8 a box, but jeez I don't know if that's outrageously high or low. I have looked all over internet and can't find a price for one anywhere!

(I - as most of you do - charge $1 an inch normally, but that is WAY TOO much for these, wouldn't be able to sell them I don't think)

Thank you SO MUCH in advance for any help!

I use the following sizes: three 3 1/2-inch, three 2 1/2-inch and two 2-inch. The package is a 4x4x4 clear plastic box with a ribbon. I would charge $20 if I were to sell them.

Holy cow... was I off!

Thanks so much - I couldn't believe anyone would pay that much!

I'll try it though!

Thanks again!

This seems very interesting to make. Where can i get the boxes you guys put the cookie cake into? Does anyone have a pic?

Thank you so much! Does the cookie cake slide around in this?

I got mine from an Ebay store called Durapak. I didn't have a problem with mine sliding.

Does anyone have a picture of a stacked cookie cake in the container. I'd love to see how it looks!

These little cookie cakes are very time consuming to do not to mention the amount of cookies involved.I wouldn't do them for any less than $18-20 each.You also have to consider the packaging and ribbon and each cookie needs 8 cookies...

the bride i did the sample for said she actually wants it to be a little smaller...only 2, 2 and 2. she liked the top tier size and wanted to shrink the bottom 2 tiers. i'm still charging her $12 each unpackaged.

I have these priced at $13, boxed. Maybe I'm too low also... *thinking...*
