Knowing how to price your bake sale can be tough. Follow our top tips for pricing!

Don’t price anything under $1. You will have to sell a lot more to reach your fundraising goal and create more change to deal with. Try to keep items priced at even dollar amounts, like $2, $5, or more, instead of pricing at $1.50.

Get comparable rates. Once you have your menu planned, go around town and see how local bakeries and grocery stores price similar items. Don’t be afraid to go a little higher. It’s for charity!

Bundle your baked goods. Consider packaging small items in sets. For instance, cookies and scones will bring in a lot more if sold in sets of 2 or 3.


Rainbow Sprinkle Sugar Cookies: $2 for 1 cookie / $5 for 3 cookies $20 for 12 cookies

Strawberries and Cream Scones: $3 for 1 scone / $8 for 3 scones / $28 for 12 scones

Blueberry Lemon Loaves: $12 for traditional loaf / $4 per slice / $7 per mini loaf / $12 for bundle of 2 mini loaves / $24 for 4 mini loaves

Classic Vanilla Pound Cake: $15 whole / $8 half / $4 per slice
