I would only charge $100 if all you were doing was just a simple swirl of icing. If there is any decorating involved I would charge more per cupcake. I dont know if I have a pic on here of them or not, but I did ones for a baby shower with booties strollers and rattles and I charged $2 a peice for them.

My price for a basic cupcake is $2.25 per piece, so $1 each sounds way too low. Are they all one flavour? That would make it simpler...

Even a simple cupcake with homemade buttercream should be at least $2.00 each. Good Luck

Buck a piece not nearly enough. Cupcakes are VERY labor intense. No less than 2.00 each.

What do you charge per slice? Isn't a cupcake just another serving of cake? Do you fill your cupcakes? What kind of decoratiosn are they wanting?

I'd much rather do a 100 serving cake over 100 cupcakes. You will be spending alot more time baking and icing those cupcakes, not to mention transporting them from one location to another.

well the reason I'm charging a dollar is because I'm still new at this, plus my work is not that flawless yet. so maybe the next time I'll charge a little more. I just don't want to charge $2.00 and it looks sloopy or not perfect.
