I price higher because it's not just a simple swirl. Depending on how you decorate there's a bit more work involved. I don't do one for any less than $75. For me, depending on the size, then can take anywhere from 18-30 cupcakes. There are two on the second page of my photos. The halloween cupcake cake was $75. It used about 18 cupcakes, and I transferred the picture on with piping gel and piped the design with stars. The santa cupcake cake further down on that page was much larger and used close to 3 dozen cupcakes. I made this for a Christmas party we were hosting, so didn't charge, but because the entire face is piped while looking at a picture, I'd probably sell this for $125-$140. The cupcakes alone would have been $90 for a basic swirl.
