Every year I offer decorative bundt cakes all wrapped up in cellophane and ribbons for Teachers gifts..I'd like a different flavor combination other than the regular flavors like chocolate etc...something different like chocolate mocha or orange spice..I don't know....   Any suggestions!!     Laurel :-)
Thanks Cherrcakes..That;s what I wanted to know..I appreciate it!!
Stitches,   I have been on this forum for almost 10 years now...Most of the 8000 post were made in the early days when I was new and starting out.I have been mostly home based doing cakes when I can for family and a few friends and aqaintences and rarely do craft fairs(not in 9 years) ....and went back to work FT for several years..It is just now that I become fully licensed and Re -Grand opened my business on a full time basis...I resent the implication that you are...
No one has tried this?  I'd really like to know....LOL
Jason _kraft....California I suspect is a very expensive market so although you may think $1.85 for a cakepop is too cheap...Here you just can't charge $3.00 or more...people just won't buy them from a home based business for that but for some reason they will from Starbucks....Go Figure....Plus every stay at home Mom around here is offering to make them for cheap so...I don't really care about the cakepops anyways as they are not a important part of my business..I just...
Interesting thought...So then I should charge my regular price of $1.85. for cakepops but I have never sold dipped pretzels before..What would be the going rate?
I don't have a retail store as I am a home based business.I thought if I put "special price for today only"...Then I don't think would be upset when they come to my website and they are slightly more..Businesses put items on sale at Fairs/events all the time...People understand that a lot of times there are sale prices at these events.
I am participating in a Craft/business fair in my area in mid November.I am re-Grand Opening my business and am basically there for marketing exposure and not to sell lots of treats.I am handing out mini cupcakes as samples but I thought I would sell cakepops and chocolate dipped pretzels for a $1.00 each just to pay for the ingredients etc..not to make any real money.   Do you think that is a fair price?     Thanks Laurel
What essentially does this do?   When I worked at Sobey's we used fresh whipped cream for most of the display cakes(black forest etc)...But I noticed if we had extra cream and left it in the fridge...the next day it was watery...   I have had several customesr ask if I make cakes covered entirely of whipped cream in which I answer no...   So my question is...would the stabilizer able me to cover and decorate cakes in whipped cream??     Thanks
Well Mommy1st.....Not here in Calgary anyways..Doesn't matter how good your Boss is...when you work for the big box grocery chains they don't care about you or what time you want off or if you have small kids...I had a great boss but she wasn't authorized to offer PT too much per hour...and it wasn't much...I worked hard like your self but I am a decorater at heart and not a clean up gal or prep person...I was mopping floors,cleaning industrial size mixing bowls...climbing...
