I'm not sure where this post belongs, so I'll try here.

How do you price cake balls? Can anyone please share with me their formula, etc for figuring this out?

Thanks so much!! icon_smile.gif

We charge $1.00 for non-liqueur flavored cake balls and $1.25 for liqueur flavored ones.

I sold mine for $10 per dozen. There were walnut size - on the smallish side. That was a couple of yrs ago....I know prices have gone up. Most of mine were made from scape cake so to me it was 'free' money icon_smile.gif

I dont really have a formula for the pricing, but I willbe selling mine for $10/dz or like $5 or $6/ 1/2 dz. I know people use scraps, but I make cake to make cake balls, so I really haven't figured up the price quite yet for each one.

If they are made just for that purpose as in a special order/flavor I sell them for $1 each.

If they do an "it's a last minute thing I don't care what flavors then I sell them for .75 each and use the left overs on hand from the freezer.

Speaking of cake scraps... how long can cake scraps keep in the fridge or freezer? How long do cake truffles stay fresh?

My license doesn't include foods that need to be refridgerated once prepared. How long can the truffles be left out once finished?
I don't want to make anyone sick.

thanks icon_smile.gif

When I have scraps I put them into crumbs before I put them in the freezer. I then label them "yellow" "strawberry" "cherry" so I know what flavor/color it is but I never thought to put the date because they don't last more than 6 months.

I double wrap them in plastic wrap and then put the wrapped stuff into a gallon sized bag where they all live individually wrapped but sharing bag space in cake crumb harmony until I need them.
