The first thing you need to do is figure out how much the ingredients you need will cost so you don't end up with no profit margin. Then you need to figure out how long it takes you to make the product and add on a little more for the electricity or gas you used to bake them.

Your time and work is valuable include it in the cost analysis.

Once you have that figured out increase the cost of the baked goods so you have a profit margin.

As the cost of the electricity or gas is hard to calculate the simple way would be figure out the ingredients cost and multiply it by 1.5 or 2 for the selling price to cover the rest. You don't want to make the cost too high or you won't sell your product.

Good Luck!

I wouldn't know how much, but I can say the ones that take longer to make need to be a little more expensive than the ones that don't. Also, you don't want to set the prices so high people will scoff at how ridiculous they cost and won't buy anything, tough at the same time, you don't want it so cheap that you won't be able to pay the bills.
