As you all know I make cupcakes every Tuesday for "wing night" at my house. If you didn't know before, you know now! Well, every Wednesday my mom takes some of the leftover cupcakes to work with her. Last week one of her co-workers asked if he could order some cupcakes from me. I wish I could've been there to answer him: "HOLY HECK! Of course you can!!" My mom had to say, "Sure but you know you'll have to pay for them." To which he happily agreed. (I have a feeling my punctuation is somewhat mangled.) Anyway, I made them today and sent them to work with my mom.
That's 12 Frangelico chocolate cupcakes with Nutella SMBC (Swiss meringue buttercream, but it's a pain to type out. And trust me, I will be typing it frequently here!) & 12 vanilla cupcakes with vanilla SMBC and sprinkles. I love a man who orders cupcakes and specifically requests sprinkles!
This brings me to a question. How much would you expect to pay for this box of cupcakes? I want to hear your feedback, and then I'll post how much I charged and see if I'm over or under-priced.
UPDATE: I got $1 per cupcake, which comes to $24 for the whole box. My price is on the low end of everyone's feeback. I even had some wishful thinkers saying I should've gotten $50+!! Wow I wish you people lived in my neighborhood! :) I'll probably divide my cupcakes into regulars and fancies. I'll charge $1 per cupcake for regular (simple) flavors. And $1.25 or $1.50 for cupcakes with more expensive ingredients (the Frang/Nutella cupcakes for example).
