I am finally almost up and running. Have been baking for fun for a while, but still having a hard time, charging people . I made this 6" cake with 24 matching cupcakes (half double chocolate half vanilla) & i cut out the matching cucpakes wrappers to (i love to coordinate lol). How much would you have charged (if you don't mind me asking)?
I generally charge $2.50 per custom cupcake I would of added $.25 per custom made wrapper plus the 6" cake would of been $30 so I would of charged $96. Plus delivery, set up and stand rental if needed. HTH
I would have done the same for the cupcakes. But maybe $25 on the cake since it was a 6". But somewhere around that price sounds right.
thank you . I charged $75 and felt guilty doing so , but am glad that if anything i undercharged lol.
luvbuttercream - set up and stand rental ? i have to admit never thought of charging for those.didn't charge delivery as they were super close by. do you mind me asking how much you charge? I just borrowed my cupcake stand to the family,set up everything and left. it might be worth renting it (am having a few more made shortly, as shipping & custom kind of made for one expensive stand)
Guess i just need to start believing i am "good" enough to be charging the prices i have set.
thanks again for your replies
I don't usually charge delivery on small orders but a wedding I charge set and delivery and a rental on the stand so I can be sure to get it back.
Well I charge $25 for the rental and a $50 refundable deposit. My delivery and set up fee for weddings is $50.
