I need your help. I make cupcakes as a hobby and I have sold some to friends. They are enjoyed by all but I've been told that $24 for a dozen of cupcakes is too much. I use the standard muffin tin. I have read over some of the threads that give advice on "never" under pricing your cakes/cupcakes, but none of them have stated what size cup cakes are being made. Please let me know if $24 per dozen of standard cupcakes is too much. icon_smile.gif

Don't be bullied by buttheads. 24$/doz for standard size is well worth it.

I charge 33$/doz for standard size, a swirl of frosting and sprinkles.

Around here, the going rate is $3.00 per cupcake standard, $5.00 for large with just a swirl and some sprinkels.

LMAO.....How about the jerks that say....I can get them at Costco for 7 bucks...(NYC is locking Wally-World (shudders) out but we still have wholesale clubs).....

So my heart goes out to all you cakers with a Wally-World EVERY 5 miles.

You set your price dont undersell yourself; don't rob them either and never, never, take a wholesale or Wally's prices as "rule of thumb"....

And like maya said: LET THEM MAKE IT THEMSELVES....LOL icon_biggrin.gificon_biggrin.gificon_rolleyes.gificon_rolleyes.gif

Happy caking,

If they want your cupcakes, they will pay! $2.00/cupcake is really not a lot. I went into a local shop and paid $4.00 for a large cupcake AND personally I didn't think it was good.

I buy what's labeled "Texas Size" cupcake wrappers. My logic is that they can get the regular size cupcakes at the local grocery, so why should they make a special trip to me? Well, because I offer a "more and better" cupcake than the grocery.
