I am making cupcakes for my neighbors foster child. She wants the fishbowl cupcakes like in the Hello Cupcake book. She wants 24. I have no clue what to charge because I don't make for others on a regular basis and never cupcakes. Your help would be greatly appreciated! icon_biggrin.gif

Im attaching a pic of ones I did before. I will be using nerds instead of nuts because it is for a 2yr old.

Unfortunately, your picture didn't attach, but I saw it in your photos. They're pretty labor-intensive from what I can tell. I don't know what part of the country you're in, and that makes a difference, but I'd say on the average about $3.00-$3.50 per cupcake would be about right. You might see what a good local bakery is charging (not WalMart or any of those!) and go from there. Very cute, I might add!

I do a lot of stuff out of their books and I normally charges $30 for 15 cupcakes, however, those fishbowl ones are all different, and quite intense so I think you could get away with going $3.00/cake! Good luck!
