How much would a cakesicle cost in your area?


Recommended Posts

My son seems to be getting some business making cakesicles (cake covered with chocolate, in the shape of a popsicle).  He is only planning to ask his friends to cover the costs, because he loves to bake and this way he can bake more since I won't be worried about all the sugar and he can buy expensive decorations.  But I'm curious what a nicely decorated cakesicle from a bakery would cost in various areas.

So like a giant cake pop? Cake pops can cost at least $3 or more here. Which is crazy because they're tiny. Of course, sometimes they're intricately decorated too. I would definitely expect a full size homemade style treat to go for $3-$5 around here though and more if it was at a chic shop.

They are the size of like one of the bigger single stick ones.  So, not the ones that are like half of a double but like one of those Dole ones, or something.

I think they are nice.  Nice enough that when he served them at go kart people asked me for the name of my baker.  Which cracked me up, but makes me a little proud.

This was a horrible thread to click on. I now know of 3 bakeries way too close to me that offer too many things I cannot know about. 

Also, cake pops at the local bakery that sells them is $36/dozen, and have to be ordered ahead of time and in dozen packages. "Price will increase with certain customizations."

I need to see a pic. Really. Just to drool. 

I think it would be around $6 here. We are on the edge of a HCOL area.

But to be fair, the only bakery we go to is specialized for allergies. (It is completely free of the top 8 allergens and sesame, wheeeee!) We spend ridiculous amounts there, and their prices run higher than normal places. My perception of bakery prices is probably all wrong.

I would think same as cupcakes. I would agree at about $3.50 - $4 per pop wouldn't be outrageous. I mean people make a decent living opening bakeries. Intricate decorations would could easily edge it up to $6+ a pop I think (like a wedding cake).
