Just had to share.... I have been taking free samples to a party store for the past 3 weeks. I provide 2 different flavor/filling combos and put them in 4oz squat plastic cups with lids & my business info on it ,in the form of an address label. I used a carboard box (baby wipe box) covered in a pretty contact paper. It held about 30 sample cups. I liked the box, as it can be disposable.

Anyway- I have just sold an $80 cake and booked a $225 cupcake order because the people tasted the samples and loved them!! The one woman had a cake ordered with a local bakery (1/2 the price) and cancelled that.

I did not have any picts or pricing there..still working on a brochure. I think it makes a BIG difference to target the right audience for the product. I am so glad to have found something that works and wanted to share it. thumbs_up.gif
