I'm just curious what everyone charges for the cake pops. Individually, bouquets, in a box or tin?

I sent a bouquet to the hospital to a friend having a baby and now the requests are coming in. So, it would be nice to have an idea of what you charge.

I live in the middle of the "Bible Belt" to give you an idea of location.

Thank you.

do you have a pic?

Yes, there are quite a few here on CC. You can find the recipe at Bakerella.com.

Here is a link from CC:

Maybe this will help.

Thank you for responding.

i was just thinkging about this...

I would say $1-1.25.. on a lolly stick, wrapped in clear paper and tied with a twisty tie.

minimum order... XX i would say atleast 2 doz. A recipe makes what 40-50?

Then chargen more if they want it in some kinda container $10-15?. don't forget delievery. Think of what flowershops charge...

Good luck! I just made some of these, I will post pics soonicon_smile.gif

Thank you. I was kind of figuring 1.50 for individual pops. That's fairly close to what you were thinking.

Before I knew it was illegal to sell out of my home, I priced them based on the order size.

If the person ordered 2 dozen or more, $1.50/each.
1-2 Dozen, $1.75/each and less than a dozen, $2/each. Everyone I knew would have paid that or more.

The reason I gave a slight discount for the larger batches is because it was a PITA for me to do all the work for a small order..if I was gonna drag out the chocolate melts and such, I wanted to do it for a large number. But that was me. icon_smile.gif

I like the bigger the batch deal. I may have to visit that destination. Work smarter not harder -definately! I don't have "spare" time just to do a few of them and that does make a lot of sense.

Thank you for your input.

id say if they order a "whole batch" which is 40-50 is where you cut off the "deal" after that its just becomes WAY time consuming!

oh i don't know. its 2:20 i need to go to bed.

Something to note of, a local boutique is selling chocolate covered oreos for $6.00 each. These are way cuter!

Sorry for no responses, my brother had my computer working on it for last couple of days. Actually working on my web site and posting prices. Now I need to go back and do some changes on the cake pop pricing or just remove it until I read all of your great suggestions.

Rocketgirl, I agree with you on the cut-off.
I love the lollies you made. I must try them and see if I can make them as cute as yours.

Every time I read this post there is another smart something I didn't think of. I just wish they could all come at the same time icon_lol.gif .

Thank you!

i need a brother that can fix my computer. uhhh. i just need a new one! oh well. I would rather have a slow comp and new cake toys!

gritswife... whats you site? I would love to check it out.

plus, I think if you shape them and wrap them right they will stay in the freezer for a while? I have been snacking on the ones I haven't dipped yet... and they don't get hard as a rock.

good luck icon_smile.gif

I just got a new computer. Unfortunately, it like all the new computers has Vista. HATE IT! (So, we put MS Word 2007 and that helps alot!) Anyway, I still need to do a few more things to my web site, but I'm very pleased to have it functioning. My web address:

creativecakesbytoni.com

I still like and get new cake toys. I just have to have them! I just ordered 3 of the fat daddios turn tables (can't remember what the actual name is-having a brain blink-sorry). They were at Amazon.com for 12.00 plus no shipping. Did you see that post?

I love cake so much, there for I love cake pops! I don't care if it just came out of the freezer or just mixed up-it's still wonderful! I'm not sure if I've ever felt like I've eaten too much cake. Not a good sign. Thank you for the tutorial. I appreciate the pictures. Great ideas.

Q: The filling doesn't taste like the silicone does it? I actually threw away some silicone bake mats, because of the rubber taste it gave the cookies.

Thank you!
Toni

I saw the post for fat daddios... but missed it icon_sad.gif guess im stuck with my crappy wilton longer.. tho sometimes I hi-jack my moms huge lazy susan off the table.... hehe.

haha. i like cake... dont love it. im crazy, i just like decorating it. i eat it tho... cakeballs! god id eat that stuff with a spoon....

Sorry you missed the fat daddios deal. That was to good to pass up. I'd just bought one from my local cake deco store - $55.00. Sad! If I were you, I swipe my mom's lazy susan too!

As far as the silicone, I think it was Rubbermaid. That was when it first came out.

I must try soon on the cake pops with the heart shape though. I just love that idea.
