Have an order for cupcakes with cake pops inserted into them. Not sure how to charge for that combination. Any advice would be appreciated. Also have not done cakepops yet so don't even know how to price those.

ANo advice for you - but gross!

You mean a cupcake with a "polka dot" of contrasting cake inside?  I've done heart shapes for Valentine's Day.  Not exactly the same.  I think I added on 50 cents each (maybe just a quarter) for the heart shapes.  Or you mean a cupcake with a stick coming out of the top, which would be pretty weird.  Since you couldn't bake a chocolate coated cake pop into a cupcake, you must be talking about the polka-dot thing.  I'd probably add on 50 cents each, making my regular cupcake move from $3 each to $3.50 each.

What I mean is a decorated cupcake and then a decorated cakepop sticking out of the top. I should have had a better description, sorry.

AOh. Well my cupcakes are $3 each and cake pops are $1.75. David charge at least $4.75 each. I have no idea how you'd package them.

ASo you'd be holding a cake pop stick with cupcake and icing on it?

I think you'd have to use a shorter stick, a denser cupcake and/or frosting, and maybe a smaller than normal cakepop. Mine are pretty top heavy - just over 1oz on a 6"stick - and if I tried to stick one in one of my cupcakes, it would probably fall over and rip through the cupcake. No pricing advice for you for your area - I charge €2.50 for a cupcake (frosting and sprinkles, no modelled deco) and €3 for a cakepop with just sprinkles. I would add the 2 prices together, and add a PITA fee and packaging fee.
