Modern (Mod) Mom Cookies

NFSC with antonia74's royal icing.....I made these as sample cookies for someone who may want to order some for a baby shower.....she wanted one dollar sized cookies but I can't get it small enough...the small ones are 5 inches tall and the bigger ones are almost 8 inches tall......I'm thinking about telling her 2 bucks for the little, and 3 for the bigger ones what do you think?? I charged her 1 dollar each for the sweet pea baby cookies in my pics...but I couldn't get all the details on a 3" one for $1

These are so incredible!!! For $2 it doesn't even come close to covering your time-they are amazing!!! Please don't undersell yourself. Cookies by Design doesn't make theirs half as nice and charges 3 times that amount!!

So cute! I agree, for the detail I would charge more.To keep the business, perhaps remove some--pinstripes, necklace, umbrella detail-change to classic umbrella lines?

Wow!!! I agree with everyone. You need to charge more. Did you make your own cookie cutter for this?

KHalstead Says... 8 years ago

yes I made my own cutters, thanks you guys for all the compliments...I'm too cheap and impatient to BUY cookie cutters LOL

how did you get the black?

StephW Says... 8 years ago

Tina, these are great!! Is it all done by hand or did you do a transfer or edible images? I know that there are people there that can afford a higher price... let them come up off some of their money! Your work is well worth it!

KHalstead Says... 8 years ago

cunga I got the black by using americolor super black......a couple blobs and it was good and dark lol....stephw...I know I know lol

KHalstead Says... 8 years ago

Oh and by the way I was able to make one that was barely over 3 inches high and I got all the details and everything and I told her $1 for the 3", $2 for the 5" and $3 for the nearly 8" one.......hopefully I get an order and hopefully not for the tiny ones lol

Fantastic! These are just the cutest! SO perfect!

mitsel8 Says... 8 years ago

These are so cute!!! I think they are worth much more money than that! I would say at least $4 and $5 maybe more.

KHalstead Says... 8 years ago

believe me I would LOVE To charge that much I just can't get the nerve and I don't want to NOT get the business!!! I live in a small town so I feel like people are probably not willing to spend a whole lot on cookies :cry:

MystiqueFire Says... 8 years ago

Holy cow those are great... I'd pay 4.50-6.00 a cookie, no lie... make sure you dont undercharge!!!

megamere Says... 8 years ago

You are working for pennies! Your cookies are great, you should charge at least 4 dollars.

KHalstead Says... 8 years ago

thanks you guys, I just gotta get up the nerve :roll:

Kate714 Says... 8 years ago

These are great! Must have taken you forever. I think you should at least charge $3 for the little and $4 for the big. They're really nice!!

pidders Says... 8 years ago

I think that they are worth more than 3$, but I feel your pain. I have had someone tell me that 2$ per cookie was too much for a 6 inch lobster...maybe we need to move to a bigger city, (and I live in a city of 1 million people)! :roll:

These are incredible! Do NOT undercharge! You put too much time into these...it's not worth your fantastic work if you don't get paid enough! GREAT JOB!

KHalstead Says... 8 years ago

thank you all for the vote of confidence!! I gave her one of each size and told her the prices......hopefully I get an order out of this!!

I absolutely love these cookies! My friend is having a baby shower in the fall and these would make a perfect favor for the guest. I wish I had the time to make cookies like this!

KHalstead Says... 8 years ago

they really aren't all THAT time consuming once you get in a pattern making them....oh and an update....she ordered 20 of the $1 ones......of course :cry: .........oh well, 20 bucks is 20 bucks!!

partyhelper Says... 8 years ago

Those are great cookies! I always thought that picture would make a great cookie, but I never got around to trying it. Wonderful job.

idoweddingcookies Says... 8 years ago

these are the nicest shower cookies I have seen. :) I would have been embrassed only giving you a $1.00 a cookie. Min. $2.00 (but should be way more) for a 3"

KHalstead Says... 8 years ago

thanks so much, I just wish I had to courage to charge more!
