so i usualy do only 2 kinds of cupcakes plain with colored frosting or white frosting and sprinkles. then i have my speciality cupcakes that i make such as smores, cookies and cream,. raspberry ganache that kind of thing.. my plain cupcakes with sprinkles choco vanilla or red velvet $20.00 my speciality go for $25.00 recently i had an order for cupcakes with a baptisim theme on it and i made chocolate crosses out of a mold.
i am good at making chocolates as well but me and fondont forget it. i want to get more creative with my cupcakes and add chocolate toppers to them i can get almost any kind of topper and a have a good amount i can get localy if needed and have some at home to work with..
what should i charge with the toppers should i do a flat set fee for the toppers. each topper cost this much i was thinking between .50cents to 2.00 depending on the chocolate toppers or is that way to much money or not enough money.
my cupcakes are sold in dozens only and by special order need advance notice.. i was thinking with edible toppers it would be $30.00 per dozen but then i get the am i under pricing myself that would bring my cupcakes to 2.50 a person vs about 2.08 a person for my specialty cupcakes and 1.67 for my plain cupcakes.
i dont want to over price myself but i dont want to underprice myself i get the i can get the cupcakes from the grocery store cheeper. yes you can but they use buttercream from a bucket and your not getting to chose your flavors the toppers are plastic and not edible
real bakerys with store fronts in my area charge $15 for a half dozen and 30 for a dozen cupcakes all kinds of flavors. then there is this other bakery that was a store front but went to advance orders only and events and she charges 40 a dozen
