AMy sister-in-law's office manager asked me to create 30 cakepops for her granddaughters Birthday party. I don't actually run a business but love to bake and refine recipes. So I have no idea what to charge her?! They will be basic cake pops no thrills. But it's very time consuming. Even though I love it....I'd like to add little "tags" with happy birthday on them. Something to add some flare. Any suggestions. Thanks!!!
First I would check into the legalities of selling food from your home kitchen. Some places allow it, some require a kitchen inspection and some don't allow it at all. Would you want to eat food from a strangers uninspected kitchen? Second there are many helpful threads about pricing. No one can tell you what to charge. We do not know your skill level, local market, or material costs.
This topic has been discussed extensively. Use the search box and type in "how to price cakes" or "jason_kraft pricing cakes" and learn how to do the math. You may also benefit from learning how to write a business plan.
AIf you're not wanting to start doing this as a business, then just ask her what she's willing to pay, and decide if it's worth it to you.
The average price for cake pops is $2 each.
