I do a few different stalls and mainly take cupcakes, push ups and cake pops. The only thing i struggle with is pricing and how many different flavours to take.

How much should I charge for it all?

ACan anyone tell me for cupcake prices. I am making 48 cup cakes with B.C and fondant decor. Lined and using a c.c wrap. Do I include the wraps and fondant to the $2.25? This is my first c.c order I am uncertain on how to charge. Fondant pieces with have red/white pika dots and zig zag And Bow's

I charge $3 per cupcake, filled with a standard swirl of bc.  For the detail you're talking about plus a wrapper, I'd be in the $8 each range.

This is just an update- I am in California - I was paid $200.00 for 48 cupcakes with buttercream icing no decor.  I quoted my customer $3.00 c.c. $144.00. She realized how much time is involved in making them and paid me more,  in the amount of $200.00.  ($4.16 c.c) That's my kinda customer she also decided to go plain no fondant as her cupcake wraps were decorated plenty.  Thank you, for your help.

ps. researched  my area c.c are going for $2.50-2.75 at a bakery so it worked out.
