You'll want to stay away from copyrighted characters like SpongeBob and Cookie Monster unless you get permission from the copyright owner first.

$12/dozen for a basic cupcake is way too low, I would be surprised if you were making any profit at all at that price. We start at $30/dozen ($2.50 each), depending on how complex the fondant decoration is we would add an additional $1-2 per cupcake.

My basic cupcakes are $2.75 each, $30 doz. Anything more than a simple fondant shape punched out and the price goes up. And yes, don't use copyrighted characters without permission.
