attack everyones weakness. kids!! you should definitely do something that appeals to the children. maybe even the ice cream cone, bright colors, fondant flowers, stars, colored sugars. when a kids see's another kid with one, they will be tugging on their parents to buy them one. okay i have 4 kids and i personally would not like that tactic but if i was at the bake sale it would be expected to have my kids shaking me down for a cupcake. good luck!

offer a value for buying more. If one cupcake is $2, then have a box of 6 for $10. Make it easy for people to buy more!

I agree about the kids too. In my retail location, I had to put pink food coloring in my vanilla IMBC because the kids want the pink one or the green one.

Another thing I have learned about selling in quantity... go basic. I mean choclate, vanilla, red velvet, banana, etc. These are the ones that sell. When you want to sell the most, forget the fancy flavors that show off your skill.

Good luck with your sale.
