I am making 50 cupcakes for a bridal shower - she wants half chocolate and half vanilla, all with vanilla frosting. No decorations, no filling...just the plain cupcake with swirled much should I be charging? how much would you charge??
and, she is renting my cupcake much for the rental?

Well I am pretty cheap I live in a small town with all small towns around. I charge a dollar per cupcake and go up from there, and then for a rental that is totally up to you I have a stand too but I usually just rent it out for free since I usually know my customers. I know I am really cheap compared to what some people charge on here but in my area that is what I can get.

For the cupcake design you describe, I charge $1.25 each. I am told, for my area, I am too cheap. For the stand I would charge a rental fee equal to what it cost to replace the stand. If you don't get it back, you will have the funds to get another.
