$2 a cupcake? That's incredibly cheap. Lots of people are going to balk at prices because most people can't afford fancy cupcakes and they don't have a clue how much work is involved ...and don't care anyway. They are used to stuff manufactured in China and don't understand why those prices are so low.

 

I had a lady literally start screaming at me on the phone when I told her my quote for a castle cake. It was annoying, but mainly because I had already let her waste so much of my time. Always get the price range out there asap.

 

Some people won't tell you their budget. Not sure why - it's as if they think if they tell you, then you're going to cheat them or something.

I'd probably charge the equivalent of $4.75 each (I'm in the  UK, so that's approx £3 each)

Inside this fat body, there's a thin woman screaming to get out...... but I can usually shut her up with chocolate!

$2 is for a basic cupcake. no decoration. i'm amazed that is considered cheap. not sure where everyone lives. or how you guys are buying ingredients. I use high end ingredients and puchase @ whole sale prices. I also produce product quickly. believe me I make profit. if someone wants a custom cupcake I start @ 2.5 & go up.

The OP was asking about a custom cc. There's a picture on page one of this thread... or am I misunderstanding you?  I charge $2.50 for an undecorated cc, but that's for basic flavors like chocolate and vanilla, not flavors like you'd find in a cc shop where prices tend to be about $3.75 for an undecorated cc.
