And even though you are in Religh, it is considered a major city. Remember, people will pay for what they want.

One more question: Should the dress and other $8 cookies come in the regular baggie with a bow or should it come with an acrylic box? I've been debating about the packaging on these. Im thinking it would also help with the shipping as well.

Your cookies are amazing. I like the idea of the acrylic boxes for the wedding dress cookies anyway. They are just too fancy for plastic wrap and a bow icon_lol.gif Your website is great as well.

I'm going to chime in with all the others and say how gorgeous and stunning your cookies are. Maybe I'm way out of the loop but I haven't really seen anything like those dress cookies before. Amazing.

As far as your pricing and keeping in mind that your market may not support this, but I live in Cincinnati (not the richest place in the country) and one of our high end bakery charges $12 a cookie for dress cookies that are much simpler than yours. If your market won't support going that high though, I can see $8 being perfectly reasonable. Maybe if you start out at $8 and get people used to the idea of the finer things in life, then eventually you can raise your prices.

These are stunning, original and just wonderful cookies. Your prices seem too low to me (especially for those dresses), but I do not know the size of the cookies. As mentioned, it is a matter of what your market will allow, but these really are incredible. I would suggest giving the choice of the bag or the box with the customer paying accordingly.

Ok, just needed to pick my jaw back up.......wow is what i have to say. Your cookies are so classy, so original, and so gorgeous! I agree with leily on this one. If your market doesn't support your prices, don't lower them, try and advertise in the high end venues. There are many people who would pay any price to get what they want; just watch any of the 'platinum wedding' shows on CableTv. These people spend thousands on even the most simplest things, it's astounding. That's where you need to advertise. Go to bridal shows. Advertise in other states.
You are truly talented!

Wedding dress cookies with packaging I would say about $10-12(depending on packaging). These are beautiful(fondant topped then airbrushed- my curiosity is getting the better of me). Weddings are expensive and favors cost anywhere from $5 for cheapies on up. It is harder to raise prices once a customer base has gotten used to the lower price.

The cake cookies(considering how well decorated should run around $8-9 before packaging). The Raliegh area should be able to support that. Check with local event planners and see if you can develop a relationship with them. They can be the best advocate for getting you in with sites and brides. Off to look at your website.

CookiesbyMomMe I wish I had an airbrush system. That would be awesome. I actually just shade them by hand with a brush.

I'm still working on boxes for the cookies. Just ordered some samples today. I want to post the dresses and the cake cookies but I'm worried I won't market them well. Lately I have been stressing about my wording for my site and products so I have held off. I procrastinate when I want something to be perfect because I find so many things wrong. Does anybody else have this problem?

Your dress cookies are amazing! Beyond amazing! I'm not sure if $8 is enough to be honest. They look super time consuming! But amazing!

OMG, your dress and wedding cake designs are so clever that it depresses me! Depending on where you live, I personally think you can charge a premium price for your more upscale cookies.
