I know what your all going to say... find out the cost of ingredients and amount of time it takes you to make them.. blah, blah,!

I can figure that out, but I want to know what you actually charge for them. Ive found websites that sell them for 50.00 a dozen. Holy Cow!

I have a MOB that wants to order them for a surprize for the bride. They have 300 guest. How many would you suggest she order?

Well I'm sure you know how to multiply a dozen to get 300 pieces, so blah, blah, blah, I'm sure you can figure that one out as well.

If she has 300 guests she should order 300 for favors. And I'd charge her $50 a dozen, sure, those are a last-minute thing and are relatively labor and time-intensive.

I suggested them as favors as well, but she has something else planned for favors. I figure I will just give her a price per dozen and let her make the decision as to how many she wants. Its not a last minute order, so I have time to plan.

I think the 50.00 per dozen was a gift box with delivery. I was just wondering if others made these and what their pricing was.

FYI - Blah, blah, blah... was said with the intention of being funny, because we all have heard the "ingredients and time speech". - Just so this doesnt turn into one of those ranting post.

Thanks for the advice!

Strawberries are expensive, "good" chocolate is expensive, they are time consuming and have to be made at just the right time. Pricing is different for differnt areas so you'll need to figure your cost and go from there.
