I could use some advice:  I have an order for 90 cupcakes (graduation party).  Anyway, the customer wants logos and I would love some input on creative decorating with logos.  She wants 30 with the high school logo, which is SL, I figure I will pipe it on the cupcake or write it on chocolate then stand up on the cupcakes.  Then she wants 30 with the college logo and 30 with the air force logo.  Does anyone have any ideas other than just edible icing?  I will definitely do that for one of the groups of 30, but then how should I decorate the last group of 30?  Thanks in advance!

How about mini frozen buttercream transfers?  they won't stand up but they are easy!

Thanks, I've never tried those.  I have done flooding with royal icing, how would you compare the two, pros an cons?  Also, the party is in June, do you think they would hold up if it is a very hot day?  And one more question, if you don't mind - I was thinking of charging 250.00 or 270.00 for the 90 decorated cupcakes, do you think that is reasonable?  I've never had this big an order, the biggest order I've had so far was for 75 people, and I'm kind of nervous to ask that much.

AHow about some logos on a fondant or gumpaste pennant on a stick?
