A friend and I are doing a last-minute craft show. To "fill-in" our space, we want to have some baked goods, but have no idea as far as pricing! We will have a couple of cakes (at least one selling by the slice), cookies, brownies, etc. They will all be made from scratch, no mixes! Any help will be appreciated.

Things that are easy to pay for are always good, say $.50 or a dollar, easy in the pocket money.

I would say for really simple things go for $.50, like a small cookie for a kid. Or say 3 cookies for a $1, you can get away easily with nice sized rice krispy treats for $1. Sliced cake, if you slice it and package it nice, with a fork and all, I would say $1.50 or 2, have a coffee maker with a "free" cup of coffee with a slice of $2 cake would sell it.

Well, if you want to ensure that you get the right value for your time and efforts, professional bakers, as a rule, charge ingredients times 2 or 3 (depending on cost and difficulty). Good luck.

Thank you! The coffee idea is great. I don't drink it, so didn't even think of that! I will try to figure the cost of ingredients and go from there.

At our church bazaar we always sell them individualy wrapped like 2 cookies for 50 cents and brownies 1 for 50 cents. We never did over 50 cents but I would say a cake slice for 75 cents or 1 dollar.

Another idea is to melt chocolates any kind and dip plastic spoons in them, once hardened, wrap with plastic, tie a bow and sell for 50 cents. These are coffee and hot chocolate stirrers. Good luck with your sale!
