I had a cupcakes order from a friend co-worker, first she wanted me to do a birthday cake for her 6 years old daughter but couldn't decide so i showed her a cupcakes that i did for an engagment party one time.. what i did was using my molding letter i molded every individual letters using gumpaste and fondant and put ontop of the cupcakes and whatever left of the cupcakes i add in yellow and purple flowers. So i showed this sample to this lady she said she liked it except the msg will be happy birthday instead of congratulation and that she wanted pink and purple flowers. I did what she asked but i also make couples chocolate molding princess tiare for her with no xtra charge to put on the cupcakes....Long story short she picked up the cupcakes and said she liked it but when she went back to work she told my friend that she wasn't happy and it didnt worth $1.75 each for the cupcakes and that if she bought it at a store it only cost her $7 for 6cupcakes. The reason she wasnt happy because she thought all 24cupcakes that she had order have flowers on them but my understanding was that when i showed her the sample of the engagment one she said she want that but pink and purple flowers instead of yellow and purple....anyway my whole question is what should i be charging for a cupcakes? i don't have a baking business, this was just a hoppy and everything that i buy is in full price...is this my fault? am i charging too much? anyway i will give her back her money on monday because i don't feel good about keeping someone money when the are not happy with the result.
