I have a bride that has asked for 300 mini cupcakes in 3 different flavors. I have just started doing the cupcake thing so I'm not sure what to charge. My cake prices start at $3.75 per serving if that helps you gauge my market. Look at my pics if you need to. Thanks!

Mini-cupcakes? icon_confused.gif

Is she having something else, or just trying to be really cheap?

Do you know your cost for each cupcake? If not I would figure that out first and then go from there.

I hate mini cupcakes. HATE them... that being said, if I had to do them I would charge plenty for them. I start cupcakes at $4.50 each (filled and decorated) and I'd say that 2-3 minis equal one big one. Have a minimum too.. something like 2 dozen per flavor combo.

I don't offer minis... I hate them.. did I mention I hate mini cupcakes???? Because I hate them. No really... I hate them... icon_lol.gificon_wink.gif

Thanks for the info- why do you hate them?

They are a pain (IMHO of course). They are small... you have to scoop and fill way more teeny tiny cups... transporting them is a pain because they tend to be tippy if you don't have specialized containers... you have to ice so many of them... I have only done one mini cupcake order and I swore off of them. They dry out quicker too so you can't do them too far in advance.
