Just a quick question, do you charge the same for cupcakes as you do for cookies or is cc's considered more work. I'm talking basic cc's with a small topper (like a heart or flower) and basic cookies just covered with fondant.
Thanks

How do the ingredients and time costs compare? I'd go purely from those, it depends quite a bit on sizes of both too.

It depends, cupcakes can be more or less work than cookies depending on the size and decorations for the cupcakes or the cookies.

Even the simplest of my decorated cookies are more time-consuming than my decorated cupcakes! Locally, some bakers have no trouble getting $3 for a cupcake with just a swirl of icing.Yet people are shocked if I charge more than $2 for a detailed cookie. Many people just can't get beyond "it's just a cookie". They see fancy cakes and cupcakes on TV and seem to be more willing to pay for those....

I rarely sell my cookies. But when I do, I'd say they average $2. I realized a long time ago that I would never get rich selling my cookies. There just isn't a good market for them where I live.
