I have an idea for a seasonal home business....selling baked goods and candy for the holidays! I'm thinking it would be done on an as ordered basis/ordered ahead of time and things would be delivered in time for the holidays.
I'd offer things like:
cinnamon rolls: $2.50/9 rolls $3/9 rolls
maple buns (like cinnamon rolls but maple flavored & oatmeal rolls): $2.50/9 $3/9 rolls
potato dinner rolls (incredibly soft, went over well at my DS's wedding): $1.50/16 $2/16
pies (apple, cherry, pumpkin, chocolate cream): $4 each $6 each
quick breads in mini loaves (apple, blueberry, cranberry orange, pumpkin, lemon): $1.50/loaf $2 each
New item: individual mini bundt cakes (chocolate macaroon, etc.): $2 each
decorated cookies for Thanksgiving or Christmas: $2/dozen $2.50/dozen
other specialty cookies (pumpkin raisin, snowballs, oatmeal raisin, chocolate cherry thumbprints, chocolate or lemon crinkles, etc.): $2.00/dozen
coffeecakes (lemon, cherry, cinnamon, blueberry streusel): $4 each (9" square)
caramel corn: $2 for 2 quarts
Chocolate greeting cards (white or semisweet) : $2.50 each
Chocolate 3D sleigh (white or semisweet): $4 each
molded chocolates (wreaths, bells, trees, Santa, etc.): $1.50/dozen
filled chocolates (cherries, turtles, peanut butter cups, mint, coconut cream): $2/doz.
holiday cakes (9 x 13, decorated in a choice of Thanksgiving or
Christmas themes, your choice of yellow, white, chocolate, marble, red
velvet, pumpkin spice, carrot, banana, etc.): $12 for single layer, $15 for double layer
My questions are:
1. would you pay prices like these? Are they too cheap or too much to ask?
2. Do you think there's an interest, a market for this sort of thing?
3. Is there anything I don't have listed that you think would sell?n't have listed that you think would sell?
