In Business...Again?

Well, here's just one more thing...

I brought in my cakeballs for my V.P.'s birthday on Monday, and apparently they are so great that people want to buy them! Without even trying... I've got orders for like 6-10 dozen! I made the red velvet ones again, and some yellow cake ones as well.

The red velvet ones with cream cheese frosting were just like I've made before - the white chocolate coating, but the yellow ones I mixed with chocolate frosting and dipped in milk chocolate. Two dozen of the orders though are going to be german chocolate cake balls with the coconut pecan frosting dipped in milk chocolate.

I also make peanut butter candies dipped in chocolate during the holidays - so I could offer those as well. Also my chocolate dipped pretzels, and maybe my dipped rice crispy treats...

I'm working on coming up with some great packaging... and then will be selling them for $10 a dozen... or maybe $12... what would you pay?

What flavors would you offer initially?

What do you guys think... and snappy business names? How would you go about marketing? Am I sitting on a gold mine?

  1. Mmm, those look delicious and I LOVE the idea of german chocolate cake balls! Oh my WORD! I'm not good with pricing, because honestly, I probably wouldn't buy them.
    Gee, I can't think of any good names either. What good AM I then? Ah well, you know I'll cheer you on every step of the way!

  2. I made pumpkin cake balls with homemade cream cheese frosting and it was way better than the canned stuff. They were devoured! :)

    I think the holiday season is a great time for this stuff; people what good,homebaked goods, but often don't want/have the time to make.

    Good luck!

  3. you could also make the oreo truffles which are similar to cake balls but you blend one pkg crushed oreos with 1 block cream cheese and then dip. i always thought those would be good if you used the mint oreos, nutter butters, etc. too!

  4. I would absolutely buy those little babies. Yum!

  5. OMG Kim!! Those look simply sinful! I would buy them for sure.. but what hooked me in was the Chocolate covered pretzels..Of all things dipped..that is my absolute favorite! I ll take 2 dozen please.. And I think $10 a dozen for the cake balls is good. Good luck friend!
