Hi All. I've taken a stall at our local flower show - they're expecting 25000 visitors over the weekend, so I should hopefully be busy!
I was wondering how people display cakes at these events? I've seen stands with the cakes sitting out, but I'm unsure about how hygienic that is? Should I have some out on display, but then have them boxed behind for purchases? Or should I have them individually packaged? Suggestions would be great!
Ta muchly as always
For cakes, I would make dummy cakes for display and individually package any I intended to sell for ease of carrying. Although, I've never seen people buying whole cakes at a show like that. Tough to carry around, especially if anything needs refrigerated. If you were doing cupcakes/cookies or something, I would probably do both - package some "pre-made" boxes for those people who just want to pick some up and go and have some open stock for people who wanted to put a box together or just grab one while they walk around.
