presently I have graduated from Culinary School with a Certificate and I re-enrolled for my degree and will be graduating in 4 more months, at this time I am living with my parent and unemployed with a child ( I am a single father of 3, one at home). My kids and I have been living in with my parents (2 have moved out on their own) who have been helping out tremendously, thought I am unemployed I still have money coming in but not the amount that I wish to be bringing so I've decided to try with opening up my own little spot at the FLEA MARKET every Sunday to bring in some extra cash by selling my GOURMET CUPCAKES & CAKES.
I was so excited to do so, so I went down to get information on setting up a spot on the inside and all was sounding good until I was told that I can NOT sell cupcakes singularly, that they have to be sold in a BOX OF 6 or as a DOZEN and cakes I can only sell WHOLE and not in SLICES.
This totally threw me for a loop because I know to make the most money would be to sell them singularly which I was going to do at $3.00 PER CUPCAKE.
Now being that this has been thrown in my face Im feeling as though people WILL NOT BUY MY CUPCAKES because they are sold as 1/2 DOZEN or a DOZEN because being that the cupcakes singularly would be $3.00 PER CUPCAKE that would make a WHOLE DOZEN $36.00 and a 1/2 DOZEN $18.00 which Im feeling would turn customers noses away.
So I am thinking that I should also make my GOURMET CAKES but at a smaller size (6 inches) and charge a nice price. I think that this would bring in good money being that I am making smaller cakes which would be attracting to the female client (visually).
Oh Yea Im also Making GOURMET COOKIES as well.
DOES ANYONE HAVE ANY SUGGESTIONS on what I should do to bring in MORE DOLLARS???
I NEED HELP
