I did a tasting for the mother of one of my daughter’s friends not too long ago. I should have charged. I worked for a couple days making cupcakes in three flavors with three different fillings and two different icing choices. I made white almond sour cream cake with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream icing, lemon with lemon fillling with vanilla buttercream icing and chocolate fudge with nutella buttercream. When she and her fiancee came to the tasting, I had them all set out on my vintage milk glass plates. We sat at the table and talked for about an hour about the possibilities. We worked out all the details and I told her I would get back to her with a price. The next day she e-mailed me thanking me for the tasting, everything was wonderful, but she decided to have her daughter make her wedding cupcakes. I SHOULD HAVE CHARGED!!
