I have been doing cakes as a hobby and am now just starting to take it seriously. As a result of the work I have done for my son's birthdays I have a few people asking me to do cakes for their kids. I was wondering if anyone could share with me what they think is reasonable to charge per cupcake or how you would charge for decorated cookies? Thank you for the time and help icon_smile.gif

Well..I'm not sure I am getting the definition of reasonable.I charge for my time and ingredients for all cakes,cupcakes and cookies so reasonable to one person may not be to another.

Cookies start at $5.00 each..$1.00 of that is packaging.It takes about 6-8 hours to do from the beggining... make dough,bake,cool,then ice over 1-2 days to dry.

Cupcakes are $2.50 each...more for fondant .

If you check out the major online cookie companies you will see they charge the same or more.Same with the popular cupcake cafes.HTH
