Hi ladies I'm new here! I was just wondering what you would all charge for a single cupcake example- choc mud cupcake with Nutella buttercream a Ferraro rocher on top and drizzled with ganache
I would never do a single cupcake. Our minimum order is one dozen.
If I sell a single cupcake what do I do with the rest?
That depends on your location. Prices differ a lot! If you sell single cupcakes in a shop or at a fair (which I wouldn't do cause it's more work and costs packing them - 4 would be my minimum) I would charge around 2$ per cupcake. Buy other people charge 4$ or more...work out your ALL your costs and see what works in your area.
I think a lot of people who are lost on pricing don't think about how any other business does pricing. Figure.out your cost. This includes all ingredients, supplies (the ferrero richer, the wrapper), don't forget labor time to pay yourself. Now, typically you'd times that number by 4. Then to sell wholesale, you times the number by 2 and you're still able to make money.
Baking is a business, just like anything else. Your cost might be very different than someone else's. You need to know exactly what the things are costing you before you can know what to charge for them.
Thanks ladies! I have a set price of $5 per cupcake but was just wondering what you all charge to see if I was too expensive :) I have a minimum of 4 also :)
You turn on the oven and bake for a $20 order (4 cupcakes)?
