sold the cupcake push pops for the first time today at a craft fair. they were the one thing that sold well, and that's saying something! I was placed in an area where sun was beating down on me through the windows (no blinds) and some of my chocolates melted. My specialty is buckeyes, and I was supposed to be the only buckeye vendor there... there were two others...nightmare!
Anyway, I got lots of good compliments about the push pops. I brought 19 and sold 18, so I was happy about that. The fair overall, though, was a bust... came out barely even. Oh well!
maria, what did u sell them for? i wanted to order some but chickened out bc i was concerned that they wouldnt go over well, and time consuming to make. how long did it take u to make them? if u dont mind me asking i mean.
hi! I sold them for $2 each and only made them in 2 flavors... chocolate cake/buttercream/mini m&m and funfetti/buttercream/sprinkles. The m&m ones went first... should have made more! It didn't take an amazingly long time to make them, minus cupcake baking time and icing making time, it only took about 30 minutes to put together about 20 of them.
I just made mini cupcakes and split them in half, so there were 2 cupcakes (4 pieces) in each tube with buttercream and toppings on each layer and on the top. I also made sure there was cake on the bottom and not icing... just a personal choice
Good luck to you!
thanks maria, well thats suprisinly shorter than i expected.....maybe i will have a go at these! LOL
Those are precious!
