I have been asked if I would like to have a table at a Ladies Night to showcase my cakes. I know I have way more learning to do but have been baking for years so am confident that my cakes taste good.
I would only be interested in showing fondant cakes as I really have had no practise piping and would state this up front.
Now what I would like is others opinions on my cakes I think I've done ok but would really appreciate other CC'er opinions.
Also what do you put on your tables when you go to do a show, sorry for the ignorance thats why I'm asking.
Thanks for your opinions

What is Lady's Night? I think your cakes look good so I say go for it. At a minimum have business cards available. If possible small brochures or flyers with basic pricing how to order etc. Have fun with it. FYI, I love your donkey cake.

It is a night with entertainment and a supper with tables set up similar to a trade show.

I think they look great as well, I vote go for it! In addition to business cards and flyers, I'd say a binder with a collection of your cake photos. When I was planning my wedding a couple years ago and went to a wedding show, every baker had a binder with 8x10's of their cakes. HTH ^_^

If you have a digital picture frame, or an iPad, you could have a slide show going of all of your cakes. You could also have some slides with info, such as what types of events you specialize in, maybe one of cake flavors, etc.

Your cakes are beautiful and your work with gumpaste surely makes up for the fact that you're not comfortable with piping yet. Go for it.
