So I think I did ok on these cookies. They ended up really big though, about 5" across. I only charged the lady $3 a piece...I am not sure if I'm just slow but these darn things took a total of 5 hours. Should I have charged more? I'm excited for her to see them today! Anyways, I'd love some constructive criticism. Thanks everyone for all your help!!

they look AWESOME!!!! Man I wish I had the courage to charge more for cookies..........I spent an entire day on my blue onesie cookies and only charged a dollar each and I felt guilty saying they were going to be that much.....then the whole time I'm making them I'm kicking myself thinking.......man I am making like 10 cents an hour at this rate after the cost of ingredients!!!!! I think you could have charged more for sure!!!! But at least you charged enough lol
They look awesome......all of them look identical and that's soooooo hard to do !! Hopefully the customer will love them and also realize how much time and work goes into these cookies!!

The cookies look fabulous!!! I think you could have charged more than $3 per cookie...$5 would be good for next time! They sell $5 cookies here and they are much smaller than those and not as detailed either.
Very good job...I bet the customer will love them!

I've the rule of thumb on here of $1 per inch, so a 5" cookie would be $5 each. They are fabulous looking! Very tedious work with all of that detail, but as the previous poster said, they all look very consistent with each other, which can be difficult. Good job!
Cookies are a LOT of work. I'd rather do a cake over cookies any day. I think $3 each is about right. But if they were that big, maybe you could have even charged more for them. Oh well, next time, right?
First, BEAUTIFUL cookies! Second, I would charge no less than $5-6 each for them! Sometimes I have an idea in mind for cookies and it's not until I finish them and realize how much more or less time it took to do them! They're deceiving little boogers aren't they! Yours look fabulous!
They look amazing! I would have charged more for sure, you have so much detail on those. Probably around 3 or 4 $ each. I just got my first cookie order too and I am charging 2 $ per cookie for an order of 50 cookies. I too felt bad to charge "that much" but they are SO much work! Great job
