ACan anyone advise me on how much I should charge for cupcake stilettos? I'm only starting out but I've been asked to make some for a friends neice. I usually sell my cupcakes for £1 and that covers everything. These stilettos have wafer and choc as well as sanding sugar. I always feel bad charging more than £1 per cupcake. Any advice would be helpful.
local retail delicious cupcakes cost $3.50 u.s.
5.60 your pounds
that's in a specialty cupcake shop
the extra on that siletto cupcake should be easily another $2.50 u.s. (or more)
4.00 your pounds
so 9.50 pounds( $7 u.s.)
don't you think???
they are each one a sculpture
if my math is right for the conversion :)
AOh wow. That sounds a lot. Would people actually pay that? Yes you're right, each shoe is a sculpture. I always feel bad for charging for cupcakes. Thank you for your help xx
yes they will
the store i'm referencing is a chain cupcake store--
there are many of them selling primarily cupcakes alone
they don't even fill the cupcakes--for $3.50 u.s.
which is like two of your pounds
very tasty cuppies too
and that's before any stiletto action at all
so yes people pay that to the tune of supporting many freestanding cupcake businesses

This is why it's so important to have a business plan and do research on your target markets. If you find a target market that will pay £8-10 for a cupcake, you can offer this type of product. If your target market is only willing to pay £1 per cupcake, you are probably better off not selling cupcakes at all considering how much you will end up paying yourself.
yes for sure!!
lots of planning and number crunching--very important--vital
boring (to moi) but vital
much rather make stilettos!!!
AGreat advice thank you. Ill definitely need to have a serious think and plan. .. In between making beautiful shoes :)
