I postd in "cupcakes" but no replies, so Im posting here.

I just received an e-mail for wedding cupcakes instead of a wedding cake. I charge $3 -$5 a serving for my cakes depending on difficulty and time etc. How do I price the cupcakes? Is there a base price per cupcake and add for decoration. I need to give an answer and an approx. price quote.

People generally price the same as per cake serving. So if you'd charge $3-5 for a cake serving, you'd charge $3-5 per cupcake, depending on flavour, complexity and design.

My cupcakes start at $2.25 each (which is pretty cheap around here) and goes up depending on what goes inside and on top.

Some people hate doing cupcakes; personally, I like them.

I'm with Tubbs..I start at $2.50 per cupcake basic BC swirl.If they want fondant accents or fondant covered it goes up from there.

I actually did answer your post in the cupcake forum! I didn't realize there was another post on the subject!

Thank you , I personally would much rather do a cake, but if this is the brides choice, Im not going to pass up on a wedding. At least I now have something to tell her. Thanks again
