I have been asked to do a demo at a craft show this weekend. My bakery gets free promotion for it, and it's good PR. I did it last year and demo'd different designs for Christmas cupcakes and my boss did pie dough. I don't know what to do this year. One bakery is doing Christmas cookies (pretty general) and another is doing gingerbread houses. I'm in the middle of a HUGE gingerbread house for a contest and I have no interest in doing another. I could do Christmas cookies, too, I guess, but I was wondering if anyone out there had another idea for me. We will have no oven/sink/stove available and it's only 30 minutes so it has to be pretty basic.

Thanks in advance!

I did a cooking last April showcasing Marshmallow fondant. You could melt the marshmallows on a portable stove top...or just bring it already made and show how to knead, color, apply to cookies, make flowers or mold the fondant. All can be done ahead of time and you can kill the entire 30 minutes discussing how to make it and what can be done with it? That's all I've got. God bless!!
