Towel Cakes

May 1, 2009

ONE & ONLY FIGURES has developed 18 different Towel Cakes, which are designs of washcloths that are configured to look just like cakes and other desserts, which makes them ideal gifts and favors. There are two different towel sizes in the series: 12 and eight inches square.

All are dressed up with typical fancy dessert décor, such as plastic fruits, and each has a message, like, "best wishes," or, "sweet love." The jelly roll is the most popular 12 inch size, and a heart shape strawberry sweet love is the most popular in the smaller size. It is the one unit that actually consists of two washcloths. Ice creams are being added, and they will be made of 12 inch square washcloths.

Other designs are a chocolate cheesecake, lemon cheesecake, cherry mousse cake, strawberry cupcake, lollipop, mango roll, and many more, such as chocolate and coconut cake. Each of the larger units comes in a clear plastic box, which shows the contents. The smaller ones are packaged in clear plastic bags.

The minimum opening order is $100. Wholesale prices vary depending on the specific design, and the cost ranges from $1.85 to $2.60. The suggested retail price is at least double wholesale cost, and the supplier reports that some boutiques charge as much as $6.99 and even $9.99. A display that is formed as a two tier cake display rack is available for $15. It can hold more than a dozen Towel Cakes. The top tier generally holds about six units, and the lower can hold eight to 10.
