I have never used the Jem Cutters before and I was wondering how long it takes to make a pair of the mini shoes. I am pretty fast at making big shoes, but these seem so small. Some one wants to order 7 dozen cupcakes with a pair of shoes on each one, and I have no idea what to charge her since I have no clue how long they take to make. As a reference point, I charge $28 a dozen for my basic flower cupcake. (the entire cupcake decorated to a flower). Thanks in advance.

I've got the set and I'm not sure a pair'll fit nicely on a cupcake. However, I'd suggest you get the set. This one order'll pay for them! And then you'll have them on hand for other shoe orders. What I've done is make long formers from old gumpaste so I can make a set of soles and put them to dry instead of doing them one-by-one. Saves so much time.

I've used them for a cupcake order before and found them to be just a bit too big so I just cut them down to size a little before joining all the parts up.

Because of having to cut them down a little they did quite a bit longer than they normally would.
