I have been asked to make these for a bridal shower. Instead of the candy stick I would use fondant and there will be a fresh strawberry inside of the cupcake. I live in Madison, WI where wedding cakes go for around $3 a serving and up. I figure this king size cupcake is 3 times the size of a regular cupcake so I was thinking of asking $6 each, do you think that is too much?

I think your price seems fair! However, I'm wondering if using fondant instead of the candy stick will lead the stick getting too soft once it's in the buttercream for a while??
KHalstead I never thought of that, you are right. Maybe I will just use the candy sticks, now I just have to find a place that sells those.
Hello Thin4Life - i was surprised by the large cupcakes -
Just had a google search for Candy Sticks...so many colours to choose from looking at Google Images.
hope this helps.
I'm pretty sure Cracker Barrel has candy sticks.
Thanks for all your responses, I really appreciate it. So do the rest of you agree, $6 is not too much to ask for these?
Taking into consideration the exchange rate - i would be charging more than $6.00 -
Do you feel you are being payed an acceptable ammount @ $6.00 each?
Your $6.00 = $7.16 Australia dollars.
That one large cupcake is 3 times the size of a normal cupcake then i wouild charge 3 times the original cost - as you will be using more batter/cost of cases - etc etc etc.
If the BRB wants those - then she has to be prepared to pay for the ammount of ingrediants used and everthing else that goes into making them - including your time.
Look forward to seeing the completed order
Bob Evans also sells those candy sticks by the register, just FYI
Bluehue is right - 3 times the size means 3 times the price. And that's what you tell the customer if they have a problem with it.
