  • 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.

                    Done to perfection! Serve them warm and they are bound to be good sellers.

                        New toys sometimes become tools we can use, and other times they simply are tools toward expanding our horizons and being there when an idea pops into our heads. Let us know what you try the Ortur on and how it does. I'm sincerely curious. Also....why did you choose Amazon vs the other vendors...

                        It was a challenge that’s for sure. I didn’t start anything until I was all finished. It’s nice to have a clean area to work in! My biggest challenge was all those pieces of scrap wood that I just might need “someday.” They burned well in my son’s woodstove. And I did get through all the patterns....

                        Wow - Betty, what do you charge. I have things to do and I'm in the process of cleaning my shop, just to have room to do it. My problem is that I get the work bench cleared and then start working on projects again. I really need to do the workbench last.

                        I ordered and received the ORTUR Laser Master 2 from Amazon, the but haven't had a chance to even get it out of the box. Too much going
                        on right now. I got the 20 watt version, which is supposed to be good for cutting, but I don't think I'll be doing much of that. There will be a learning curve...
