Hello everyone...I'm needing some pricing suggestions. I've been asked to make 150 baby elmo lollipops made out of fondant standing approx. 5 inches tall. They also want a cake topper of a baby elmo also made out of fondant standing approx. 8 inches tall. I've NEVER had such a big order as this one and am getting pretty nervous about it.
Now in my head this seems like it's going to be pretty pricey since everything will be handmade using fondant. Am I correct on this...don't really know? How much should I charge for each lollipop and the cake topper?
I really hope someone can give an insight as to what to charge for this. Thank you all who can help me
*I will definitely be posting some pics if this order goes through
I don't really have any idea or price, but I would think that you need to charge A LOT! Don't forget to factor in your time. If you have to had mold each of those, it would take me a lot of time to do those.
I'm having a duh moment ... They don't want cake? Just fondant on a sucker stick?
That sounds like too much work to be economically feasible. I wouldn't even take the order, because I would say at least $10 per "sucker", which is going to make your customer faint. Also, Elmo is a copyrighted character and you can't sell the image unless you have paid for the rights.
so where are they getting the cake from? I wouldn't want my work combined with someone elses, especially walmart!!!!
