Just wondering what to charge for a cupcake tower for a wedding, it is my first cupcake tower and not sure what to charge. The bride needs 175-200 cupcakes and a 6 inch cake at top. Thanks so much!!

I charge $2.75 per cupcake and $36 - $48 for the cake, plus a $50 stand rental, plus a $50 delivery fee.

But MY fees have absolutely nothing to do with what YOU should charge.

Only you can know what to charge. We don't know how much utilities cost in your area, whether or not you're paying to rent a commercial kitchen, whether or not you're operating legally and therefore paying for inspections, licensing and insurance, and whether you purchase raw ingredients retail or wholesale. Or how much time it takes you to complete these tasks.

A lot of it depends on where you are, your experience, etc. I live in Bend, OR, so things are cheaper here. I charge $1.50-$2.00 each, plus $2/slice for the cake, $50 rental for the cupcake tower (plus a refundable deposit), and delivery starting at $25. I agree that it all depends on you, too! Good luck!
