I have to make a wedding cake. She wants 125 vanilla cupcakes and 125 chocolate cupcakes for a total of 250 cupcakes. For each cup I will have to mold and put it on a chocolate flower.

That is the first time I have to do a lot of cup cupcakes, and I don't know how much does it sell at other place !!!

Thank you for helping me

I haven't ever done cupcakes for a wedding, I probably never will just because of the time involved--plus storage space issues. But if someone asked me what I would charge, I would probably say $1.75 a piece. I have nothing to base that on--that's just a offhand guess. Oh--and since they want chocolate flowers on them, I think I would actually charge $2.25 or $2.50 apiece. I really don't know what an average price would be in this instance.

Thank you very much Lotsoftots,

It was really helping me. It was the same price I wanted to charge but I wasn't sure it's ok

Thanks again and have a good day

Cupcakes will probably be more time consuming than a regular cake. . .I think I would charge a bit more, if your market can stand it. More in $3.00 range.
Just a thought. . .
