A friend liked the Cupcake Sliders & Fries combos that I made for my daughter and would like me to make them for her Son's birthday coming up in April. I have only ever done cakes for my family and never to sell, so I have no idea as to what to charge her per cupcake/fry combo. What would you price them at? Thanks so much for any and all advice.

You need to work out how much they cost to make, including ingredients, labor (paying yourself a decent wage), and overhead on a per-order basis (utilities, insurance, licensing fees, and so on), then add a profit margin of 20% or so.

You'll also need to find out if you can legally sell food made from home, some states require a licensed and inspected commercial kitchen.
