How much to charge?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
24 cupcakes decorated in fondant and with fondant character figures of sort as well as 24 shaped cookies decorated with fondant. (Cookies are relatively small)
How much would you charge?
Seem to be getting my prices all wrong
Thank you icon_smile.gif

I think it would help if you'd post a pic of what you mean. If it's what it sounds like to me, I'd charge about $35 each for the cc's and possibly $5 each for the cookies. Are they individually wrapped with a bow or something like that?

Surely you don't mean $35 PER cupcake?

There. Their. They're not the same.

 

I hope I die before "your" becomes the official contraction of "you are."

I think she does mean that.  Twenty-four 3D fondant characters alone would be expensive.

Yes, I meant per cupcake - I charge $20-$75 for 3d figures.

$5.00 per cupcake.  That being said, I most likely wouldn't make those, as I'm not sure anyone would be willing to pay what those are worth!  If they were, yes, $5.00!!

Scratch that...people will pay for those, just not sure I would make them...

I would guess you've got about 1/2 hour labor per cupcake = $7.50

                                   time & ingred. to color all that fondant= $2.00

                                                                     regular cupcake= $2.50

                                                                     __________________

 

                                                                   Minimum $12.00 per cupcake

 

 

 

But here's the catch, you can't sell Disney characters..........
