I am doing an outside event in August. If I bring samples out packaged in little boxes and kept them in a ice chest, do you think they would keep well?
Maybe I need to experiment?

I'd hate to not have samples because that is what works best.

I think a cooler would work...only bring out a small amount of boxes at a time. I would use "blue ice" thingies with a layer of plastic or something between them and the samples to absorb any condensation. Don't want to make those sample boxes wet! icon_surprised.gif

You are right- samples are what sell! thumbs_up.gif Hope the weather is good for you! Good luck!

When you say an outside event, do you mean outside as in outdoors, or outside as in some other place?

I'd do the little souffle cups with lids, put a 1" square of cake in each and do a squirt of icing on the top, and pop the lid on. Seems a little bit easier than dealing with boxes.

Good luck, and have fun!

Check with your health department first. They may not allow it.
