It depends on a lot of factors... to begin with how much are your ingredients to produce your orders, how long will it take to decorate them, your supplies needed ie your liners, your clean up supplies etc, Then you have to add in how much you want to make per hour, plus your overhead, ie insurance electricity, plus how much profit to make which is usually 20-30 after you add in all the other.
Honestly we can't tell you how much to charge because no one else knows how much all of those previous things I mentioned cost you. Try running at a minimum your time, ingredients, and 30% of that to see what you come up with. HTH

I posted this earlier in another thread, but I think a lot of people forget that they need to try different price points to see what their local market can bear. It's hard for us to give you an exact answer because of not only what 'CakeandPartyGirl' mentioned, but your location as well.

Figure out your costs, get a rough idea of what your competition is charging and throw out a price icon_smile.gif

Let us know if you book it!!
