I recently got an order for a 28 cupcake bouquets.

14 basic swirl tip with 7 solid and 7 "2 tone" colored bouquets.

14 Rose tip bouquets with 7 solid color and 7 "2 tone" colored.

I will be filling in some of the gaps with mini cupcakes and the tips will match the big cupcakes.

Delivery will be about 60 miles away......

I'm using basic flavors and buttercream.

One bouquet will have a minimum of 11 regular sized cupcakes and 3 minis

I want to be fair and I definitely dont want to short myself. *Other bakeries in the area charge $3 for a regular cupcake (with a basic tip used) and $1.50 for minis.....

*This does not include and special tips or delivery/setup

The bride will purchase the vases and the foam.

What should I charge? Thanks in advance!!!!

$50 per bouquet.

Just a guess, based on the prices you quoited above. You still have to skewer them and use cups or something in the construction.

PS I dont' make this things.

I don't make those--however I know the degree of difficulty is rampant--expertise is required--plus a two hour delivery there & back--why focus on a fair price? What is normal about cupcake bouquets? Normal is milk for the baby.

I recommend a beaucoup bouquet price. icon_biggrin.gif Seriously.

Thanks so much for the guidance! It's so nervewracking to come up with prices. Is there a "how-to" pricing guide on this site???
