How much do you all charge for plain round cake pops? And then for shaped/decorated ones? I am currently charging $1 each for plain round ones and $2 for fancy/decorated ones. I have looked but cannot seem to find any threads on this (I know they are lurking somewhere on CC!).

I charge $1 each or $10/dz. What do you mean by fancy decorated ones? I just did some for a wedding which was black and white, the cake pops were dipped in white chocolate and with a black striped drizzle of dark chocolate dyed black. I didn't charge anything extra to do that, or for ones dipped in sanding sugar. However, I kind of feel like I don't charge enough because they can be a lot of work. Some people in other states charge $20 or $30/dz. It also depends on your market.

Fancy to me means royal icing decorations on top or shaped pops. Thanks for your input! They really are a lot of work.

I've seen businesses in my area charge $18 for 6 cake balls! That's $3 each - yikes!

I charge $20.00 a dozen. I do not put them on sticks. They are dipped in chocolate and then drizzled with more chocolate, usually white. I have no problem getting $20.00 for them
