I have a customer inquiring about the high heel cupcakes that you see pictures of floating around the internet. The ones where the cupcake is the toe section of the shoe, there is a flat piece of something (gumpaste?) angled up from there and a rolled cookie stick (pirouline? sp?) as the heel. Does anyone have a clue what to charge for these things? My hubby said maybe around $6-7 each, then my 9 year old niece said it should be $10 each. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!
I would do at least a minimum of $8.50 per a cupcake and then offer a bulk discount if they order 10 pairs or so (20 cupcakes so then go down to $8) they are a lot of work and use expensive ingredients!
Thank you for the reply. I definitely agree that these use expensive ingredients and have to be time consuming. I'm hoping the price will scare her away.
I have made High Heel's. I used white chocolate covered shaped graham crackers "sole". And I dont know if you have a Dollar Tree store near you, but thats where I got the cookies for the heel (they are the same name brand ones that are at grocery stores). Just a tip I had to make double cupcakes & cut one in half and shape it & put it on top of a cupcake to be able to make the toe part high enough to get the sole to go into it.
Wow they look cool but tricky!!!
Dollar Tree is exactly where I was thinking of getting the cookies. Thank you so much for the tips on how to put them together. That helps so much.
Your welcome.. They are time consuming but fun & turn out GREAT!!
