Just had to share my excitement about my new storefront's opening next tuesday!!! I have been going through this process for about 2 months, getting my kitchen up to par and I just passed all of my inspections Monday =) I will be working by myself starting out but have already had soo many cake orders, I may need to hire some help later on, but I guess that's a good thing icon_biggrin.gif I will also be having fresh daily cupcakes, a ribbon cutting ceremony will be held a week after I open. I was going to have some mini cupcakes as samples that day, but wondered if I should have samples everyday or maybe once a week? Any thoughts? Well I am done rambling now icon_lol.gif

How exciting!!! Congratulations to you! Daily minis in the beginning are a good idea but always be sure you have the budget to cover doing that. Be sure to show is some photos of the ribbon ceremony!

Sampling out mini-cupcakes is great for your grand opening day. But since your business centers around decorated cakes, pictures are more important. Lots of pictures!

(Where did you post the convection oven question?)

Congratulations and good luck! Minis for the first day or until your grand opening only, after that people should pay icon_biggrin.gif
