I always wonder the same thing......how much do people charge for labor?? It seems that when you ask the question "what to charge", everyone always says the same thing......figure out your cost for materials & your time. WELL, that really doesn't tell me anything. I know you have to figure in your materials & time. But after you figure your time that's when some of us get stuck....(how much do you charge for your time?) I know prices differ depending on your area, but can't anyone just give a $number for cupcake labor? Its just a guide for people that are new, not something that carved in stone.
