A friend of mine wants me to do a cupcake demonstration for her daughters upcoming birthday but although I've done one in the past it was for family so I didn't charge.

My question is how much do I charge for my time? It'll be for an hour and I know what to charge for the cupcakes, creams and the like but not sure how to work out my time amount.

Any thoughts?

Hi Claire! You'll be spending more than an hour when you include planning, shopping, packing and driving, etc, to your destination. Multiply the number of hours times an hourly salary that you feel comfortable with. Round it up and that can be your base fee for a cupcake demo. You don't want Facebook pricing. I've learned that charging more increases the appeal.


From there you can decide if your friend gets a discount. I call it a courtesy discount so friends know they are paying less because they are special.
