Hi, I am completely new to this forum and also new to cupcakes business. What I need to know is, if my prices are right. I am in TN area, little town. I am working from home and baking is my hobby and side business.
I do charge $1.50 a piece for regular cupcake with simple decorations.
For nicer or fondant decorations and filling- I want to charge $0.25 extra.
I have no clue what to ask for minicupcakes. Probably something around 1 dollar.
Now I need your opinions about it. Is that price about right or should I charge less?
Your work is beautiful and fun. I have a great feeling that they taste awesome as well. There is a "small town" type gourmet bake shop in my area. It appears to be "small town" but I've learned, they are more of a business for people to open and run themselves. At least, that is my belief.
The reason why I'm sharing this with you is so you can see their prices! Check out their business and perhaps it might be helpful to you and your success! Good Luck!
Here is the link, I think you can just copy/paste it onto your browser and it should come up for you.
Your mini cupcakes are awsome and I believe worth every penney that you want to charge. That's alot of work, so don't short change yourself.
These cupcakes are very creative and fun, and they do look like they taste amazing. Honestly your prices seem right on point and I wouldn't go any lower in price. Just make sure you keep prices high enough to make a decent profit so you can keep your business. Over time once business has grown and demand is high you should be able to slowly increase the price.
Wishing you luck!!
The cupcake shops around here charge $3.25 for a regular cupcake and $ 1.25 for a mini (no frills) the regular cupcakes are pretty. A basic swirl/choc curls/sprinkles or pirouette cookies sticks..
My daughter (14) charges $2 for regular $1 for mini. I guess it is determined by your location and what the rates are in your area for the commercial cupcakes.
I also work from home, on the side, in a very small town and I base charge $2/cupcake. They sell.
I often wonder if I should be charging more. You get what you pay for right? If you want cheap, crappy cupcakes go to Safeway! If you want beautiful, delicious (and slightly higher priced) custom cupcakes...go to a decorator :)
I live in Florida and started selling cupcakes about 1 year ago. I charge $2.95 for mine. Mine are all stuffed and if you want to see them I am on facebook at " Sufftcakes"
I think your price is more then fair.
