I charge $3.00 each for basic buttercream embellishments...$3.50 for a fondant flower or decoration...and higher if really intricate.

Depends on your cost and time making them. If you are doing it as a business, it also helps to know your local market and what customers are getting elsewhere and are willing to pay for yours. I charge $1.25 for simple BC swirl, no filling, maybe sprinkles, anything after that cost extra$$!

at least $150, but it sounds like you've got some extra decorating to do? make sure you charge for it or you'll end up losing out and hating your job. icon_smile.gif Here in NZ I charge just under $3.50 for my basic cupcakes, any type of fondant deco etc at all - I automatically add at least an extra $.50 per cupcake. You've got to make sure you pay yourself, otherwise it's not worth it & people will keep expecting you to do the same thing at the same price.

Completely depends on the decorations! A standard sized cupcake here goes for $1.50 to $2.50. That is the cake, a buttercream swirl and maybe sprinkles or another SIMPLE garnish. Fondant toppers, flowers, themed designs, etc., are added into the price based on the difficulty and time spent on the decorations. Also, if you fill your cakes, that's another .25 or so per cupcake.
