Hi There
Just wondering what peoples thoughts were in regards to charging a set amount for gumpaste extras eg Gumpaste shoe and gumpaste people?

I am starting to do a few of these and think i need an approximate cost.
I am finding them hard to price, as the ingredients costs are not huge but my time is.

Look forward to hearing how you price these and what you charge.

Thanks in advance

I know this is not an original response, but I figure out my costs for the ingredients and then estimate how long it will take me to complete the fondant details or the figurine. When I first started making figurines, I always "lost" money because I understimated how long it would take me to make them. Now, since I have made quite a few, I have a more realistic idea of the time involved. HTH!
