  • My Try Delecious Cupcakes

    I made 3 cupcakes. The 3 bases are Mahogany and Maple the frosting is Maple, Yellowwood, walnut. The sprinkles are veneer I cut up on 2 and the other is maple I used a surform rasp to make some curley's.

    My wife put some cotton in one of them and said it's cream filled.
    You will notice that one one of the bases the lines do not go all the way to the top. I must have had the angle wrong on the sander. Everyone I show these to like that one better. Looks more like the crinkle paper holder.

    My big question is how much to charge. It took me about 1 1/2 hours each to make complete. I am thinking in the $25 range.

    All comments are welcome.

    Nicely done. I'd charge whatever I thought the traffic will bear. It all depends on the venue. If I had them in the gallery I'd probably charge that price perhaps a little more.

      They look yummy, Bill. I like the idea of the cream filling, too. You did a nice job with them, right down to the decorative toppings.

      I've never sold any, just given them away as gifts, but $25 sounds like a good place to start. If you make up a bunch of them, you might be able to give a slight discount for buying several. Let us know how you make out.

        Nice work Bill! - You've done Carole proud. I've no idea on the price but I think that as well as the craftsmanship the novelty aspect of these pieces ought to demand a reasonable amount.

              Sweeeet stuff Bill, like the cotton idea too. Sprinkles are fun to make aren't they.

                Very nicely done Bill. I agree with the others $25 sounds about right to start. If they sell quickly then $25 might be a bit low. Thanks for sharing them with us.

                        Quartz I only bought the air filter, That same model is sold by many distributors, I see Grizzly has it and several others. I was going to build one but this thing works great. I will get a charcoal filter for it also. Great when doing Pyrography. They also had a Pfingst brand flex shaft tool I haven't...

                        Carole, only you would cut sprinkles on a scrollsaw. I would probably use rice and stain it. I just gave up replacing my insert. Its worn, but works for what I need. I do sand it to make sure there are no burrs sticking up to scratch the wood. I will be trying the new contact paper when mine runs...

                        Thick hair would need a larger opening, thinner hair would require a smaller opening to stay in place. The one being shown in the utube would probably work for thicker hair. They look way better than a pencil or dowel! That elephant sure is cute in her hair!.
