I'm looking to open a store front that sales mainly cupcakes. But I have an idea on the size of cupcake to sell. Should I stck with the traditional size that people make at home? Or would that be too small and I should go a bit bigger?

Why not check out other bakeries around the city and see what size(s) they are offering.

I'd think you'd want to make your cupcakes special so people don't walk in and think, gee, I can make that myself at home!

You might want to also google "cupcakes" and then click on Images to get some ideas.

Generally, the bakeries I've been inside offer either slightly taller-than-regular size cake with a tall mound of decorated or swirled frosting, or they offer regular sized cupcakes with stunning flavors and a nice heaping dollop of frosting, often swirled.

The only cupcake place in town sales average sized cupcakes with a ton of frosting. No one really seems to like that, plus people say the cupcakes are dry.

Thinking on having the standard circle shape, and also have square cupcakes. So I would the novelty of shape and I'm testing my recipes and getting feed back from poteinal customers on
