I’d figure out what you would be willing to pay at any of the cupcake shops in your area and offer her that amount.  Then, let it be her decision if you get the BFF discount or not.  Offering her less than she expected to be paid might make things awkward, so I’d be faster to offer her more than you’d like to spend and let it be her decision to tell you if she’ll accept less (and how much less).

I did cupcakes and they cost $2.50 a cupcake. We had 200 guests so that came out to $500. That was with a bride and groom on each one as well.

Cupcakes seemed to be slightly higer priced in your area, you don’t need a big design, I say more like $300-$350 for the cupcakes your friend will be making. Just my opinion though.

We are planning on doing red velvet cupcakes with cream cheese frosting (YUM!), and we will have about 300 or so.  Each cupcake will cost 1.50 with very simple decoration.  I live in the suburbs of Minneapolis. 🙂

We got 13 dozen (156 cupcakes) for $500, including delivery. No fancy decorations or fillings, 4 different flavors with simple icing. They were the most expensive place we looked at but they were AMAZING and not your typical flavors at all (the reese’s peanut putter cup inspired cupcake went the quickest!). Other places around here were averaging around $2-$2.50/cupcake.

I live in California. My cupcakes were at the end of the day $755 for 150 cupcakes. She did a nice job though and charged higher because she was known for unique designs =).

@dovelovesfalcon:  That might not cover the ingredients? Or maybe it will…I’m bad at math lol.
