[postimage id="6255" thumb="900"] I made this simple and small chocolate covered strawberry bouquet. Each strawberry is dipped in chocolate and then covered in modeling chocolate! Im in NJ. What would you charge or pay for this? Or how much per strawberry?
You'll want to figure out cost per strawberry for the berries themselves, the chocolate they're dipped in, the modeling chocolate, the filler flowers and crinkled paper, and any other materials, plus pay yourself a good hourly wage. That's the only way you can be sure that you're charging what they (and you!) are worth and not shortchanging yourself/losing money.
If I were a customer - I think I would reasonably pay about $20-25 for that. Where I am, dipped berries alone are about $1.99 each, and I would add at least an extra dollar or so each for the modeling chocolate, etc.
i think they should go for about $12 -$15 each --that grouping with baby's breath, vase & rippley stuff should be about $100 -- the footballs on this page go for about $8 each -- roses then should be that much more --
I would love to be able to charge $100 for something like that - but I don't think that price point is something the market would bear.
i agree that finding the market for that price point is the issue --
if just dipped & piped footballs are nearly $8 each -- full blown roses should be that much more -- then put into an arrangement with all the trimmings -- but yes who would pay that -- not moi :)
but it should cost a ton
Those are so PRETTY! What a lovely idea.
