Hello guys,

just wondering how much you would charge for a cupcake with Italian meringue frosting?


for my cupcakes with basic buttercream and cream cheese frosting i charge $2 each and was thinking of making that the price for all my cupcakes no matter the frosting...


how much would you charge for:

Italian meringue frosting

cream cheese frosting

mascarpone whipped cream frosting

frosting colored with food coloring

I would say charge based on your ingredient cost.  If the meringue buttercreams seem to be about the same base cost for you as your cream cheese, then the same is fine.  I would imagine the mascarpone is significantly more expensive than butter or cream cheese, so I'd recommend pricing that slightly higher (even just .25 per cupcake).
