Help! My brother in law owns a small bookstore downtown, and they want me to make something for a book club meeting (I only just started selling my cakes), and there will be a lot of "well off" women there.... great advertising potential
my problem is that its in the morning so a cake wouldn't really do. Any suggestions? should I do like a coffee cake? or muffins? does anyone have any great recipes? any help would be great!
Hi and Welcome, kgyurisin.
Are you a full service baker or a cake decorator.
If you're a baker then coffee cakes and/or muffins would be appropriate to display your baking diversity.
If you're a cake decorator, a decorated pound cake (either sheet or tiered) would be a less sweet cake offering that would highlight your decorating skills:
The WASC cake is always popular, although a bit sweeter it's not cloying:
Scratch WASC cake recipes:
Since it's in the morning, I would say definately LESS sweet and no exotic buttercream or fondant.
You could do individual coffee cakes in cupcake papers (maybe chai flavored), a sliced pound cake, scones, muffins. Think "Starbucks, only not factory made and frozen) .
