I know there has been tons of questions on cake pricing but I don't believe I've ever seen what people charge for cupcakes. I've just received an order for cupcakes for a baby shower and I don't have a clue as to what to charge per cupcake. Do you use sheet cake pricing or layer cake pricing? icon_confused.gif

I run a gourmet cupcakery and we charge 1.50 for mini cupcakes and 2.00 for regular sized cupcakes. We sell the regular sized for $20 per dozen. But if they order a large quantity, I ususally work with them on the price. For example, if they order like 5 dozen I would tell them that would usually cost $100 but for them I would "cut them a deal" and give it to them for $80. An added bonus for that is this will create a repeat customer.

Are the cupcakes going to be filled? If so to me I would treat it like a serving of cake and price it accordingly.

I would try googling cc shops in your area for pricing Here cc prices start at $2.95 minis at $1.50 No fillings just a swirl of bc
