The price is a bit scary too! You wouldn't want to touch it. Not my choice but someone will love it.

That's crazy!!! It's cool but it's just some cookies and tissue paper not worth the 101 they're charging, imho.

Incredible price, isn't it icon_eek.gif

But you have to remember you're not just paying for the cookies and container (paper bag, in this case).

There's the advertising, the website, the corporate greed, whatever......

Really makes you feel that the baker/decorators on this site are way undervalued.

Someone in a different thread, shared that her husband said, and this is NOT a quote - that cost determines worth.

So our talented CC crew aren't charging enough!!!!

Reminds me of the Martha Stewart tv movie. Martha was selling pies at the mall for $5.00 (I can't really remember) and none were being purchased to her dismay..... So after lowering the price from 5 to 4 to 3, and still not selling - she upped the price to $20.00 and they flew off her little table.

Is there a lesson here tapedshut.gif

and thus my many, many, many hobbies...jewelry, machine embroidery, cookies, cakes...LOL

Wow! Pretty high price, but I don't think I would do those cookes for much less than that! That's a LOT of cookiesand a LOT of detail! Lots of work in that thing! Would anyone pay that price? Not sure around here, but the time involved, it would be worth it!

Looks very nice but I would not pay that much!

"we" would never pay that because we know we could make it ourselves. There are a lot of rich grandmas that want special things to send the kiddies across the miles at Halloween or any other time. If they were willing to pay it, I'd sure make it for them! LOL That's just insane.
Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

That is a lot of cookies and tons of detail, even I would charge $70-$80 for that collection of cookies. Then again, I insist on being paid for my time & talent (what there is of it lol!), gone are the days of me slaving away for minimum wage or less!!!

I think its a pretty reasonable price for 16 detailed cookies....its probably what we would tell our fellow cc'ers to charge if they asked.

Thanks for posting that site....alot of cute ideas!

I live in the Raleigh/Cary area, and they can get prices like that. A simple 10 inch buttercream cake with a fondant bow goes for $95.00 at the bakery in town. That's how I get a lot of my orders.

you know what???? I really think it's worth it!!! I wouldn't pay for it myself........because I'd probably just try to attempt it myself.........but there are like 6 different colors on some of those house cookies and the detail is phenominal I wouldn't be surprised if some of those cookies didn't take a couple of days each to make!!! Do I think it's worth 101.50 .......Definitely....would I pay 101.50......Definitely NOT! But they are very well done!!
