I was wondering how much would you charge for this cupcake tower. The client wants strawberries on top instead. How would you decorate the strawberry because they are usually to big for a cupcake. The only way I can think of is cut the strawberries but how? I wish I could leave them whole. Any suggestions?
You could cut the strawberries into slices and then fan like two or three on top & garnish w/mint leaf? I have done it that way before. Good luck.
If the cupcakes are standard size, I would price @ $1.75 - 2.00. If the larger, I use my per cake serving price $3.50 ea, especially if it is a premium flavor cake & icing.
On a different note, I've always wondered.... where do you get a stand like this? Or do you make it? If so, how? Out of what?
There is a thread on here where a bunch of people posted pictures of the stands that they made. There are some super creative ones on here.
Google antonias cupcake stand. The thread will pop up. I just used mine for the first time today and it was looked pretty with the matching ribbon
Thanks Foxy... I found it! Very informative!
I think the fan of strawberry slices looks very nice. But how long do you think slices could be exposed to the air before they start to either dry out or get mushy? You might not be able to do that too far in advance (although I don't know how far in advance would be OK). You could make fondant strawberries for the cupcakes. It's not fresh fruit (obviously) and might not be exactly what the client is looking for . . . but it might work.
