There's nothing wrong with raising your prices to be in line with the rising cost of ingredients. If someone asks why you are charging more you can give them a concrete example ("Well 6 months ago I was paying around a dollar for butter, now I am paying $4") or something like that. I'd even follow up with a "I'm sure you've noticed you're paying more for milk and eggs when you do your grocery shopping." Or whatever food item you want to mention.
