Lots of factors....... how much does it cost you to make? Don't forget gas, hydro and water in the price.

I do $25/2 dozen with a 2 dozen minimum. The creamers are great! There are so many flavor choices!

I am starting my cake pops business. I noticed someone mentioned they use creamers on your pops. Can you tell me where to find these and how to use them please?

Thanks

The coffee creamers are used as a binder for the cake.They are not used as coatings...You use them in place of icing...

I have a feeling you don't have these in Australia.

Coffee creamers are a non-dairy liquid (or powder that you mix with water or directly into coffee) that people put in coffee instead of milk. Thay can be purchased flavored or plain. I think they are made from oil. The two main brands here in the US are International Delight and Coffee Mate.

Yes, in cake pops people sometimes use coffee creamer instead of frosting.

For fun: the powdered version is highly flammable.

I Charge $24 a Dozen ($2 Ea) For Simple Round Cake Pops (Sprinkle or Drizzle/Swirl Design) and $30 a Dozen ($2.50 Ea) For More Complicated/Character Cake Pops. Making Cake Pops Are Veryyy Time Consuming and Costly. You Have to Consider The Chocolate, Cake Mix/Ingredients, Sprinkles, Sticks, Bags, Ribbon and Display (I Usually Do a 3 Tier Styrofoam Display.) If You Want You Can Also Charge a $15 Material Fee. If Someone Orders a Dozen Simple Cake Pops ($24) and I Spend $15 on Material I Would Technically Only Make $9. Don't Cheat Yourself. Happy Baking :)

What do you normally charge? How much will you save on costs for ordering in bulk (wrappers, ribbon, etc.)? How about packaging, is that going to cost you any less?
