Hi Everyone. I've recently been asked to quote a wedding cake pop order of 200. This would be my largest cake pop order to date and I'm wondering:
1. What's the best, most efficient baking, assembling, decorating, packaging time line?
2. Any tips on delivery
3. Any tips on set up if I'm asked to provide the cake pop stands/displays?
I'd love any thoughts. Thanks!!
Ask what their plans are for display. If you are to provide the cake pop stands/displays, charge a refundable deposit that will cover a good portion (if not all) of the replacement cost of the stands you use. I'm not 100% sure on delivery but I would chill them and put something to cushion the cake pops in whatever container you use to transport. I generally individually wrap cake pops when I deliver, but I've never delivered ones that would be in a wedding display. I would bake and shape the cake pops starting a week or two out. I would bake the cakes and make them into cake pops right away, then I would freeze the cake pops without sticks until time to defrost and decorate.
As WYBee said.......You can bake, make the pops & freeze weeks ahead. Set up should be done by the customer or they should tell you what to use/how to display them. Be sure to charge enough to cover your delivery/set up time & costs.
