Hi All: Although I decorate cakes, I love to do any kind of baking. I have had some friends ask me what I would charge for a desert tray w/cookies, brownies, oreo balls, cake slices and candy on them. I have no idea how to price this....HELP AND THANKS!
Factor in how much you would charge for each of them individually - that's what I would do. If you're not a bakery where you would be baking these types of things daily, then you would have to do a batch of each one - so definitely factor that into your pricing. Hope that is helpful!
You would price it along the same lines that you price a cake. Cost of supplies/overhead plus labor plus profit.
I'm in Canada, and around here dessert platters in stores start at $40 for a small one. Depending on what size you are planning on making I would charge anywhere from $60+. Hope that helps a little.
I already have them on my menu, so it is easy. I price just like my cakes... ingredients, overhead, and time.
When pricing, don't be too quick to discount. This will take time.
Thanks to all for you quick replies, they were very helpful
