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

pidders I don't know if there are bigger cities than what you're living in.....one million??? my city is only 15, 000 :?

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!!

on

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?

on

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

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!

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

on

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

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

on

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:

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!!

on

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!

on

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!!

on

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!

on

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!!

on

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

on

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"
