That is what we charge for ours, but we don't make them really fancy except for special occasions, and charge a little more for them then. We are also in a small town.

I've been wondering about the cake balls/pops pricing, too. Then I found these brownie pops on Sharis Berries around Mother's day..... I wonder how many people really order these. They look very cute though...
What do you think?

I sell mine for $10 per dozen unless they are custom designed for a special occasion- then they are priced higher according to the detail involved. People don't seem to have a problem at all with that price here in Kansas City. There are several online vendors that sell them for $29 a dozen plus S&H, so mine are a bargain! Oh, and Starbucks just started selling cake pops that are smaller than my cake balls and they are $3.50 each. SERIOUSLY.

it depends on the size of them...

i've paid like $3.50 a ball, but they were pretty huge and from an established commercial bakery.

$2 each, but they're good size and that does include a contrasting drizzle of chocolate.

I charge $1.15 each for my classic flavors and $1.25 each for my premium flavors. People haven't balked at my prices either so it's been working for me. I live in my state's capital but it's not a huge city by any means.

WOW! I charge $7 per dozen. I call mine Cake Truffles, I think it is the same thing though. I haven't had anyone say it was too much either. The biggest seller is the B-Day cake flavor for me though. I do however charge more for Rum flavored ones $9 per dozen.

Hahaha! no, that price doesn't include shipping. And the standard(cheapest I think) shipping is $12.99. I just checked the site again and there were several reviews about those brownie pops. They were almost all 5 stars!! icon_eek.gif
