All I can tell you is those little buggers take forever! I've done them twice, and there are a lot of steps. Make sure you compensate for your time... Have you Googled local bakeries to see how much their cupcakes are?

Haven't done that yet but I will. I was thinking of charging $60.00. That would bring them to 1.70 each. She always requesting pound cakes so I don't want to go too hard on the price. However, I'm not looking forward to the work ahead of me!

I would charge $2/piece... you need red icing, white, black and orange, and a different size tip for each color... it really is a lot of work. Also, that $10 price difference probably won't make or break the customer icon_smile.gif
Good luck!
