I am 2 weeks a way from doing my first local festival. I'm worried about making too many cupcakes and investing a lot of money into to a display and not recouping my investment. Also I have never done a display like this, any advice is very much appreciated.
The festival is advertising on the radio they are expecting 30,000 people over 3 days. I have chosen 17 flavors to sell, plus several dummy cakes with edible images, and I'm making chocolates I have 8 different kinds of chocolates, plus some for display. Any thoughts? Am I being to ambitious? I'm GUESSING that only about 10% of the people attending will buy cupcakes for about 3000 cupcakes, is that accurate (my booth is in the food tent)? Additionally there is a decent sized fee if you take booth down before the end of the show. I'm worried about running out & I'm worried about have a heck of a lot left over..
I'm also still debating the pricing. I was thinking $2.50 each or 2 for $4. Is this too low??
Any and All advice is very much appreciated.
