What do you think would sell better at a farmers market? I was suppose to start the market a week ago but it rained out so this week is my first week. I have a bunch or regular or tall/jumbo liners. I'm not sure which ones would be better to make. Do more people go for the normal or taller/jumbo? The taller liners I have are 2" base with 2" sides so it fits into my normal cupcake pan but they are about double the size of my standard cupcakes. I don't want the in between sizes because after ordering and shipping they get kinda expensive(plus I ordered some a week ago just to try out and they haven't even been shipped yet! SO annoying.) while I can pick up the normal or jumbo less then 5 minutes from my house for 1/2 the price. My husband thinks the jumbo is just too much cake but he's not a cake person so I figured i'd ask what you guys think would be better to sell. Thanks!

AI sell regular sized cupcakes at my farmer's market and they sell well. No one has complained about the size.

AI personally feel that jumbo is too much cake, and a regular sized cupcake is plenty. And there is a chef saying that goes, "Always leave them wanting more." You don't want to stuff them :-)

Yes, my husband said if they buy a jumbo they have no reason to buy 2-3 more of them since the jumbo is enough for 2 people who just want a snack. Guess he's pretty smart lol.

Never question your husbands taste, or smarts, after all, he married you!
