Hi all,

I was asked to make 100 cupcakes for a wedding in June. They want a 1-M swirl on half, and the other iced with apple blossoms flowers. I don't normally do weddings or cupcakes so I am stuck on pricing. I was thinking $2.00 per. & I have to rent stands for the cuppies to go on, do I include that in the price ? icon_confused.gif
Any help would be great.

I think $2.00 per cupcake sounds good. What about buying the cupcake stands so that you will have them around and it's an investement? If you buy them, I wouldn't charge them any extra, except a deposit. If you decide to rent them, I would charge them the full rental fee. You might even want them to go and rent the stand themselves so that they are responsible for any damages or late fees.

I am doing 200cc for a wedding next month. Bless the bride-she "doesn't care" how they are decorated. It is going to be just a swirl. I charged $2 each. I would charge more to compensate for the extra time of the apple blossom-will definately slow you down!! For the stand-if you own it, charge a deposit, or charge rent if you have to rent it. Good luck!
