I think a lot of blame goes to things like Groupon. I've lost track of how many cheap cupcake deals I have seen (in my area, at least) where the places basically are giving away their products for free. And then hordes of cheapskates will hop from one "bakery" to another, only purchasing cupcakes using vouchers and believing that anything more than $1 per cupcake is overpriced and ridiculous and a rip-off. Sadly, this includes people that know me well and know from me how much time, money and energy goes into these things.
End rant. Sorry. I may not be in business, but dream of it someday in the future when I'm ready for it, so I get easily irritated on behalf of everyone who already IS in business.
