I've been asked to make 3 dozen heart shaped cookies with icing and writing on them for a bridal shower. How should I charge for them? I've only had to charge one person for a cake a few months ago and have never charged for cookies. I would appreciate any help!!

I would charge no less than $3 per cookie. that is if they do not want them bagged or anything like that. If they want them bagged, then charge $4.

i think $3.00 per cookie is a good price, although i charge $4

Some have said on here that if it's simple, start at .75 cents per inch and then go up from there. The more colors, the more detailed, the more money. You really just have to do what's best for you and your area. Do you have a local custom bakery that you can check out their cookie prices? That's what I would do!
