I just have to share a story with you that just happened to me. Last week a person contacted me wanting 125 sesame street decorated cupcakes. I gave her a quote and never heard back. Today she emails me and tells me my price was “ridiculous” and that she got her cupcakes for $10/dozen. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? I wrote back explaining, which I probably shouldn’t have, that I have to account for cost of my organic and imported ingredients, commercial kitchen rental, and labor and that $10 would not even cover the cost of my ingredients per dozen. I know I am competitive with other gourmet bakers but I can’t compete with $10 – that is like out of costco or supermarket or something. Impossible for me to compete with and frankly I don’t want clientele like that anyway! Thanks for letting me vent.
