Question by Sarah729: How much should I charge for wedding cupcakes?
I'm making cupcakes for a co-worker's wedding next month and I'm not sure how much I should be charging her, how I'm going to store them, transport them, etc.
They will be jumbo size chocolate and yellow with buttercream and black and white fondant flowers (cut with Wilton cut-outs) on top. I'm making 200 of them.
I'm not sure if I should charge by the cupcake or make an itemized list of supplies and double or triple it. I came up with a tentative supply list and it comes to about $ 200. If I charge by the cupcake I was thinking of charging $ 3.00, maybe $ 4.00, per cupcake. Is that reasonable? Too much? Too little?
If anyone has any pricing advice (and/or advice on how to store them beforehand and actually get them to the hall) I would really appreciate it!! Thanks!!

If you're making basic cupcakes, $ 3 cupcake is reasonable. If you're making extra fancy ones, you can charge more. For a co-worker's bridal shower, a friend made snickerdoodle cupcakes and charged me $ 25/dozen. They were devoured instantly.
