sum function results

i have the following function

function ProductPrice() {
$sqlQuery = new SQLQuery(
"Recipe.Weight * Product.CostPrice", // Select
   "Recipe, Product", // From
   "Product.ID = " . $this->ProductID
   $Price = $sqlQuery->execute()->value();

return $Price;   

this works a treat and does exactly what i want, my problem is i am trying to sum the results of this as their are several products per recipe i only want the sum of $Price for a particuar recipe.

i have tried the following but think it needs more as i want it to loop through based on the recipe ID and the array_sum may be wrong as well.

function TotalProductPrice() {
   $tpp = array($this->ProductPrice());
   foreach($tpp as $tpps);
    return array_sum( $tpps);

any help is appreciated
