Hi jobert...welcome to cakecentral! The issue of pricing comes up a lot on here. To help answer your question, you might want to post more info regarding the decorations. The more complicated the decorations, the more you would charge. The area you live is also a bit of a determining factor!!

I charge $15/dozen but they have a lot of frosting....look at my pics. People are hesitant about paying a lot for cupcakes, so you have to have in mind how much they are willing to pay.

I charge a little more for indv. decoracted cupcakes b/c they take me forever....esp if they want each cupcake to be decorated.

if they just want a cupcake cake...i charge the same as my reg. cakes that would feed the same amount of people.

hope that helps.

I live in Cincinnati, Ohio. She wants individually decorated cupcakes. Winter wonderland themed. So i thought I would make molded white snow flakes and add edible glitter to make them look more like snow.

Thanks again!

I would charge roughly the same as individual cupcakes for a wedding...they start at about $1.25 each and go up from there and considering that she wants each cupcake to be decorated in a winter theme...that would be at least $45.00 @ $1.25 but like someone has already mentioned..most people won't pay that for cupcakes.I wouldn't do it for any less!! Those little cupcakes take more time than a regular iced cake!!

Thanks, thats what I was thinking $1- $1.50 per cupcake but it seemed lie alot. Well, I will have to ask the buyer and feel it out! Thanks so much Kiddie!
