It really depends on how much work you have to put in to make each one. Are you talking very detailed, or just simple flowers?

Base price for a cupcake with frosting to one with a flower and another with more detail. I think I'm underpricing my cupcakes

Sorry if this is small...I'm replying on my ipad and it looks weird!

Anyway, think of your cupcakes as one serving of cake. What do you charge per serving when you sell a whole cake? $2, $3? That's the best way to look at it.

People fail to realize that just as much work or more goes into making custom cupcakes.

I charge $3 per cupcake. I include simple fondant flowers at no extra charge. They take very little time and material to make. If you click on my avatar, you'll see some white ones with little blue flowers. That's the kind of flower I'm talking about.

If you have to make really detailed toppers that take hours to create, you sort of have to judge that for the time it takes to make them. If it takes you 2 hours to make 2 dozen toppers, you need to decide how much extra you will charge. Whether it be per cupcake or per hour.
