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 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
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!
congratulations!!! I am happy for you!!!
Congratulations! How incredibly exciting for you!
How very exciting!!! Hope all goes well and business is good.
And i think everyday but thats just MO
How awesome for you. I am starting my own small like business venture because I cant get a job. I am an out of work Pastry cook. I finished culinary classes but had to leave my externship due to family issues, like moving 2 states to accomadate my hubby's job ( navy sailor) . So if you are opening in the NH area I would love to work for you . I am pretty good check out my website www.SweetDessertsByMelody.com

What an exciting time for you! Enjoy every minute!
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
Please post the before and after pictures, I love looking at other peoples places!
That is WONDERFUL!!!!!!!!!!!! Best Wishes....keep us posted
