I have a customer who wants a cake and 2 dozen cupcakes. I don't usually do cupcakes so I'm not sure what to charge. Can any one help me with a price to qoute her?
need help quick. Shes coming by to discuss what she wants. Any help would do.
I usually charge for 2 doz. $24.00...however, if there are fondant or candy accents or more elaborate technique then I charge more.
edited to add that I have charged up to $38.00 for 2 dozen before.
i think that your prices sounds good, it really depends on how much detail she wants. She'll understand that they're a custom order so of course they're going to be more than a grocery store or whatever. Hope it goes well.
My cupcakes are $20 per doz with icing only.
Boy, I charge $10.00 a dozen. Maybe I need to charge more.
I charge $1 a cupcake and $10 a doz. Hope this helps.
I charge $15.00 per 24 and only do incriments of 24.
I recently did 24 cupcakes with edible imags for $50. For buttercream only I would charge $36.
It completely depends on what she's asking for. Simple cupcakes.. starting at $1.50 each. Custom cake and filled with something other than BC with a custom design.. at least $2.50 each but probably closer to $3.00 and up.
Cupcakes are a pain.. you have 24 little cakes to decorate. My prices start at $1.50 for a basic cupcake though. You get chocolate or vanilla cake and a swirl of BC with rainbow sprinkles for that. My fancy cupcakes start at $2.50 each.. you get any non premuim cake you want filled with any non-premium filling topped with buttercream and no design. You want carrot cupcakes filled with cc filling and topped with smoothed lemon scented BC with a gumpaste pacifier on it.. that'll be at LEAST $4.50 each. They are paying for a single serving of cake.. it should be no different than your regualr cake prices IMHO.
18.00 for 24 plain iced
30.00 for specialty
36.00 for spec, and fondant
Thank you everyone for your input. I charged her an additional $20 for 24 cup cakes.
For the cupcake towers (trees) that I put together, I charge $4 per serving but that also includes a 6" or 8" cake on top.
I fill all the cupcakes with whatever filling they desire and the cake is custom created with their preferred flavors, too.
