I am new at starting out with actually selling my homemade cupcakes. I've always loved baking and I would bake for people but never ask for anything in return. Well, now that I do I am so stuck as to how much to charge. I don't want to "stiff" my friends and family but at the same time I don't want to leave me in a bind.
What I usually do is take the recipe (I never use a book recipe, I always make my own...my own way) and I add up how much each would cost (flour, eggs...) and then give them the total. Should I be adding extra for the labor it take me to make all the cupcakes and frost them?
Any advice is greatly appreciated and I am so glad I finally found a spot where I can learn and people can ask questions :) What a great site!
