Hey all!
I'm getting equipment lined up for my shop and a friend of mine who owns a cake supply store suggested that I just use one display case to start with I initially wanted two, but at the risk of being cost effective I considered the idea. I thought well.........maybe I can just fill up this case and get some of the smaller acrylic cases to put the muffins in. The case is not HUGE, it's a medium sized case. I also thought of using cake stands with see through domes to put items in as well. What's your take on this concept. Will I be just as successful starting out with one case and doing what I just explained until I can afford reasonably a second one? I will be able to get in the case what I need to. Perfect working condition and has curved glass! Beautiful! Selling it to me for only a few hundred dollars! Thank God for great cake friends who have been in the business longer than you and want to see you succeed, thus helps you out. Ok, let me hear ya cakesters! TIA! thumbs_up.gif

I think it could work.

The only downside I see to not getting two now is that if you wanted them to match they might not if you get one now and then one later. I guess it depends on how picky you are!

At a local cake shop in town, they have one display case up front that is full of cake orders for that day. If there's more than what will fit, the cakes stay in one of the back refrigerators and get brought forward as there is room.
