There seem to be a lot of these "home businesses" starting up recently where people have the idea to sell cupcakes. One of my neighbours put a leaflet through my door at the weekend showing her new cupcake service and she wants to charge £7.50 per cup cake.

Now I don't care how many delicate pieces of lace you put on a cake, you can Fuck off with your £7.50!

she won't sell any, that is ridiculous!!!!

PersonalClown Mon 24-Jun-13 16:09:13

How much????

Unless it's completely edible gold, you can fuck right off and I still won't buy one!

Moominsarehippos Mon 24-Jun-13 16:09:35

Is it a very large one? Made of gold leaf?

She's about three years behind the times, and 300 per cent over the going rate...

WorraLiberty Mon 24-Jun-13 16:11:18

Sounds more like a mug's cake to me...

WandaDoff Mon 24-Jun-13 16:11:28

That is a ridiculous price for a cupcake.

Greedy twat.

Is this is stealth boast? "Where I live is so posh, people think £7.50 is the going rate for a cupcake!" wink

Sadly not, housing estate in Crawley!

i wouldn't pay that if it came with thr cup....

ImTooHecsyForYourParty Mon 24-Jun-13 16:14:24

Good grief.

Well, she is entitled to ask any price she likes.

When nobody buys, she will perhaps be a little more realistic.

exexpat Mon 24-Jun-13 16:15:52

Just a thought - they aren't hash 'special' cupcakes, are they? Still a bit pricey, even if they are.

nenevomito Mon 24-Jun-13 16:16:40

That price is ridiculous, but anyway, every time I see something about cupcakes, I want to screa, they're FAIRY CAKES. <cries>

My nan used to make them. Proper like.

Who wants to pay over the odds for a dry bit of cake with too much icing on it?

There has to be a typo there surely? £7.50 for a box of cupcakes?
or its meant to be £1.50?
Otherwise shes living in dreamland....

JemimaMuddledUp Mon 24-Jun-13 16:18:24

Are you sure it is £7.50 per cake, not £7.50 per box of 6 or something?

SmiteYouWithThunderbolts Mon 24-Jun-13 16:33:48

Proper cupcakes, made by talented bakers and tastefully decorated can be lush. Still wouldn't catch me paying £7.50 for one though!

Luckily I have lovely talented friends who keep me in steady supply of free cake.

Moominsarehippos Mon 24-Jun-13 16:34:49

I wish I could flog cupcakes at £7.50 a pop. That's something like a 200% mark up!

Lurve Mon 24-Jun-13 16:35:38

Nope definitely £7.50 a cake-they were like this sort of shit, nice to look at, but more a wedding decoration or something, not something to stuff in your face whilst watching Jeremy Kyle High brow documentaries-

MerryOnMerlot Mon 24-Jun-13 16:39:06

I just don't "get" all this cupcake shit anyway, regardless of price.

babyheave is spot on.

Sokmonsta Mon 24-Jun-13 16:39:13

Maybe they're the giant 'cupcake' cakes?

And I hear you on the fairy cakes. They are fairy cakes in this house too. Always have been. Always will be. Unless I make the cake in a cup mix. Then I will concede that is a cup cake wink

SirChenjin Mon 24-Jun-13 16:41:26

I give her business all of about - oooh - 6 hours

OddSockMonster Mon 24-Jun-13 16:44:38

Wants to be a cupcake as large as my head to be charging that much.

That is bonkers. I'll be amazed if she sells a single cake.
