Have a customer wanting cake pops & cupcakes instead of cake at a wedding reception. I haven't done cake pops for actual customer yet but they seem more tedious than cupcakes when I've done them for my own parties. I need to put together a quote for the customer. What do you guys charge for cupcake vs cake pop?

I agree. I hate those things. I mainly chose not to do them because I would have to use real chocolate and the price is high. Did I mention I hate them? You have to decide if you want to offer them. I decided that in my business I will not offer anything I would hate to do. But that's just me.

To me cake pops are hard to work with. From the dipping to decorating to getting them to stay on those little sticks. I am much more comfortable with cupcakes but that's just me.

Ask them if you can serve them ball down in the mini cupcake liners. I've seen beautiful displays done this was and there is less decorating and less of the balls sliding down the stick. I did cake pops for 1 and only 1 order. Took Forever ... I hate them. I don't offer them because what I would charge is not worth what they areicon_smile.gif but if I was going to charge for them I'd charge at least as much as the cupcakes per pop but technically they should be more. I can knock out 3-4 dozen cupcakes in about an hour. I'd be lucky to get 2 dozen cake pops in that time done.
