Lots of factors....... how much does it cost you to make? Don't forget gas, hydro and water in the price.

This person charges $21 for 12.

But here's a thread on cake central discussing the price of cake balls. http://cakecentral.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=652821&postdays=0&postorder=asc&&start=0

I never used liquid creamer for cake pops, I always used frosting, what is the difference?

I do $25/2 dozen with a 2 dozen minimum. The creamers are great! There are so many flavor choices!

I am starting my cake pops business. I noticed someone mentioned they use creamers on your pops. Can you tell me where to find these and how to use them please?

Thanks

The coffee creamers are used as a binder for the cake.They are not used as coatings...You use them in place of icing...

What are creamers? is this instead of frosting? icon_eek.gif

I have a feeling you don't have these in Australia.

Coffee creamers are a non-dairy liquid (or powder that you mix with water or directly into coffee) that people put in coffee instead of milk. Thay can be purchased flavored or plain. I think they are made from oil. The two main brands here in the US are International Delight and Coffee Mate.

Yes, in cake pops people sometimes use coffee creamer instead of frosting.

For fun: the powdered version is highly flammable.

I Charge $24 a Dozen ($2 Ea) For Simple Round Cake Pops (Sprinkle or Drizzle/Swirl Design) and $30 a Dozen ($2.50 Ea) For More Complicated/Character Cake Pops. Making Cake Pops Are Veryyy Time Consuming and Costly. You Have to Consider The Chocolate, Cake Mix/Ingredients, Sprinkles, Sticks, Bags, Ribbon and Display (I Usually Do a 3 Tier Styrofoam Display.) If You Want You Can Also Charge a $15 Material Fee. If Someone Orders a Dozen Simple Cake Pops ($24) and I Spend $15 on Material I Would Technically Only Make $9. Don't Cheat Yourself. Happy Baking :)

What do you normally charge? How much will you save on costs for ordering in bulk (wrappers, ribbon, etc.)? How about packaging, is that going to cost you any less?

FrostedMoon Posted 4 Apr 2014 , 9:43pm

That is a big order!  Forgive me for asking, but is this something you've done before?  Are you asking if you should give a discount on your usual price, or do you not sell them on a regular basis?  How much do others sell them for in your area?

 

If you use the top right search box there are lots of threads on how to price.  It really is going to be different for everyone depending on their expenses and the market they are selling in.
