Recently, my local small-town bakery has closed and people are now asking me to sell decorated cookies. I operate out of a commercial kitchen but I don't have a store-front so it's not like people can just come in and pick what they want. I've done a few orders for cookies but I've found that they're way more tedious to decorate than cupcakes and I have to charge less because people are accustomed to the old bakery's prices. I also require a two dozen minimum. Just for reference, I charge $24/dozen for cupcakes with fondant toppers so what should I be charging for decorated cookies with fondant and/or royal icing? Better yet, how do I politely say no to cookies? I don't want to hurt my business since I'm just starting out so maybe I should just bite the bullet and do them anyway.
