Default Does anyone make diaper cupcakes?

I started making the diaper cupcakes I have seen on etsy (the ones that people package in bakery boxes.) If you make them, do you sell them at your craft shows? Also, what would you charge? The ones I made had 4 cupcakes which included 2 pairs of nice Carters socks, 4 Pampers, 2 super soft knit caps (1 has an applique on it) and 2 bibs (1 with an applique.) The hats and bibs are from Kohls and are a very nice quality. I figured that the stuff in it cost about $8.40 and the box was $2.00 so I'm in it for more than 10 bucks. But the stuff I bought at Kohls was on sale and then I had a 30% off coupon so really it would have cost more. Too expensive to make to turn a profit?

Hi. I don't make the diaper cupcakes to resell but I do make lots of diaper cakes. I do a LOT of craft shows and have 4 online shops. With the cost that you put in to the cupcakes, it would be more difficult to sell. Typically, you would invest no more than 40% of your selling cost. So if you invested $4, you could sell for at least $10. I would think it would be difficult to sell at $20. List it on sites like etsy to see what the market is like.

Good luck!

I really dont think you will turn a profit if you have invested that much in them.
I would recommend buying everything at Target or Walmart,that way you get more for less,and it would probably be easier to turn a profit.
Also for the boxes you put the cupcakes in,HL has a 40% off coupon each week(most of the time),and you can use 1 per day. If you are like me,my work is about 1 mile from HL so if I find something I really need I print 6 coupons and use 1 a day.
