I am hoping to get some suggestions on price, packaging and amount of cakes to make for an upcoming festival in my town. This is my first endeavor doing anything like this. I'm going to make 2 different kinds of whiskey cake. One will be baked and sold in a mini loaf pan and the other baked and sold in a mason jar. Attendance of 15,000 is expected. I am unsure of how many of each cake to prepare. Any ideas? The loaf cake will be tied in a cellophane bag with ribbon and name tag. The jars will have ribbon and little wooden spoons tied to them. Any other cute packaging ideas? Finally, how much should I sell my cakes for? The loaf boxes cost 50 cents each and the jars cost about 70 cents each. Ingredients for cakes include: flour, butter, sugar, Jack Daniels and Jameson whiskey, cherries, golden raisins, gold sprinkles, coffee and a few other things like cinnamon and vanilla. 1 batch will make a dozen cakes. I would say 1 to 2 servings per cake. What would you buy one for?
Did you ever do this event? If so, how many cakes did you make?
