this post is somewhat similar to the question I asked in cookies forum, so if you feel a deju vu coming, your not crazy lol. i have recently started decorating cupcakes, and i am wondering the prices for different types of decorations. as I said in my cookie post, I have done my homework and searched the forums, and google, and bakery websites and I am stuck. I'm not asking how to price cupcakes, I'm asking what would you price cupcakes with different decorations. i.e., surely a rolled fondant covered cupcake with fondant decorations can't be the same price as a poured fondant or buttercream? or say it is just buttercream with royal icing toppers? so you can see I'm a little stuck! maybe I get too detailed but, is that really so bad! :) thanks all for the replies.
so yes if you want to be more detailed take into account the time and costs involved as mimi suggests -- it's good to get paid a good/competitive price for good work -- but if you can find the market to pay for the haute couture cookies/cupcakes go for it -- will help the whole industry -- more power to you!
