How far in advance do you start baking? This will be my first time selling at a Farmer's Market this summer and I want to make sure that the items I sell are fresh, but also don't want to try and bake everything early the morning of and possibly not finish everything. I plan on selling cupcakes, cookies, muffins, scones, quick breads and a couple of other things. TIA!
I bake the night before.
The packaging I use come from plasticcontainer.com-keeps the goodies fresh.
Happy Baking and Decorating,
Thank you so much for the info ChefAngie!
You can prepare batters and doughs a few days ahead and refrigerate (or longer if you freeze) and then bake off early in the a.m or the night before.
If your recipes freeze well (most cupcakes, muffins, and breads should) then you can easily bake weeks in advance. Just do a trial run with freezing/unfreezing so you have a process down that preserves the quality of the products.
Thank you, MimiFix for the tip! I have never tried refrigerating my batters before, but I may do a trial run with them to see if they produce the same results.
Thank you, Jason_Kraft also for the tip about freezing ahead of time. I have frozen cakes before, but not cupcakes so I am going to freeze some and see how they turn out.
