Pricing for cupcake pops?

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
If you haven't seen these (http://bakerella.blogspot.com/2008/04/make-your-cupcakes-pop.html), you really need to check them out!

Anyway, I made some of these and my husband's coworker really really liked them (I used the WASC recipe with the homemade cream cheese butter cream icing to bind). She keeps suggesting I work with a local bakery to sell them, but seeing as I'm not legal, I'm staying far away from that idea. However, I wouldn't mind selling to her, but wouldn't know what to charge.

My DH says $1, but for all the work, I'm thinking $1.50-2 each. What do you think?? They're fairly large (they look smaller in the picture), about 1.5" in diameter.

I would suggest 2.50 to 3.00 per cupcake.

much like cake balls with flair! Really cute, I think I will try some today icon_smile.gif I have tons of scraps. I would say $1.50 at least... consider chocolate isn't cheap plus sticks... you could also sell them in larger quantities... HTH.

No idea on pricing but those are cute! Its just one of those things that you cant really charge enough. They look like so much work! Great idea though!

Thanks for the quick responses!

They're not cupcake sized, and I live in an area where cake's are probably still around $2/slice for weddings, so I'm wondering if $2.50+ is a bit more than people would pay for them.

Also, I'm trying to find a good way to make them look like flowers and really spruce up the traditional cupcake bouquet look. I can just imagine a group of these things in a small pot, looking totally cute. icon_biggrin.gif

I'm making another batch tonight and I'll time myself from mixing the cake with the icing to the final product, and think about that as well.

Thanks again!!!!

I'm sure you could use some basic flower molds to form them and then chill and dip them in chocolate. That'd be cute. I'd say $1.50-2 each would be more than fair.

I was looking around at cake/bakery websites this week and found one that charged $5 for 6 cake balls. Now, considering the work that goes into one of these cute little "cupcake pops" I would think $2 is a good starting point. I hope it works out for you, good luck!

soap molds would be perfect I think.. not too detailed but still very much a flower.

Great idea!!! I was just thinking of candy molds, but those would work beautifully as well. icon_biggrin.gif Thanks!
