Jen,

I have heard people on here say they charge no less than $1.00 per cupcake up to $2.50. I am just assuming that it would depend on the amount of work you out into them, and if there are any toppers.

Hope that helps you out a litlle!

Well Lindsay, you started something - if you don't mind, I'd like to see what you came up with. I know I often under price, but in my area alot of people would rather pay the cheaper price for Wal-mart. I have loyal customers who will pay anything, but I certainly don't want to overcharge them either!

Thank you for sending the list. It is very simple and will be very useful! However I am just curious, where do you find pudding for 25 cents?
post #36 of 118
I was just thinking about the .25 pudding, does that cost maybe not include the whole box, maybe just a portion of it. I'm not sure, I was just thinking.

I have a question? I have my first cake order and I am not sure what to price it at. It will be a car shape cake for a childs birthday party. I will just use a star tip and use BC icing. What is the going rate to charge these days?

That's why I underprice too icon_sad.gif I live in a tiny town where people are used to just getting cheap crap at the IGA, and I'll never bring them around if I charge what I should be charging!

For cupcakes, I charge $8/dozen for the basic, just swirled icing on top & some sprinkles (same price as the IGA) and $12/dozen for the fancy ones...which is still ridiculously low, considering Starbucks sells basic cupcakes for $24/dozen icon_surprised.gif
