I made my first pumpkin roll a couple months ago and it was a hit! I have thought about selling these as well, but I'm just not sure what to charge. I was thinking with pecans $18 and without pecans $16. Then I asked a few friends what they would pay for one and they said probably no more than $15. They are fast & easy to make, but I think it's the ingredients that end up costing more and why I feel like I need to charge more. What do ya'll think? Thanks in advance!
I just take my cost and multiply by 3 to cover the cost. Remember, doing that you are also covering the cost to bake, clean up, pan and time to do all of it. Don't cut yourself short. I charge $20 for one. I am doing a yule log for someone and I am charging $25 to cover the ganache on it and it is basically the samething.
My sister charges around $20 for hers.
We charge $24.95 at the bakery where i work
Where do you all live I'm coming. I'm in Ohio and top price here is 10.00 I do mine for 9.00 good grief!!!!!!!!
yeah..now I feel like I'm short changing myself...I just sold one today for $12. But I usually just multiply cost by 3 and that does come out to 12...
I don't like to make them for sale, anymore. I used to charge $8.00 but it was really like going through trouble for nothing. People found my price too high, so I prefer doing them strictly for family events or here at home.
Wow...I can't believe people thought $8 was too high! I think I'll say $20 and if people don't want to pay that, then Oh well! I'll just stick to making them for family! Thanks for the responses!!
One thing I've learn over the years selling vegetables and baked goods at the Farmer Markets is Price High, you can always come down, if you price low its hard to raise your prices, just a suggestion.
I'd pay $20, if it is good like you said, people will pay the price.
I'd say $10-15 personally. Definitely wouldn't go for less, but would be nice to get more.
I have been selling mine for $10, which is probably a few dollars low, but this seemed like a fair price for now. As far as a yule log, they are being sold for $20 to cover costs of the chocolate.
Doesn't price also depend upon the size of the roll?
yes it does felin, exactly -- and many other factors of course --
although this post is almost ten years old too so the prices quoted are too old really to compare to today --
but on a little different pumpkin tangent -- i've seen some of the magazines at the grocery store already pumping out the pumpkin recipes already and i'm trying real hard not to get tired of it like i did last year -- pumpkin this pumpkin that -- pumpkin jello and pumpkin cola , pumpkin yogurt, pumpkin brisket, pumpkin watermelon, pumpkin burgers, pumpkin fries, omg i got a little cranky with it kwim hahahaha
and for delicious feet, try pumpkin foot gel
oh no you di-ent, mimifix, hahahahahaha!
omg-- I was completely kidding -- i made all mine up -- I can't believe there really is a pumpkin pedi thing -- well on second thought -- I guess I really do and that's my problem as stated but it's only August, pumpkin peeps --
aghh --let the pumpkin onslaught begin! << fried pumpkin
