The basic contact info ... business name, address, phone, website, email, phone, fax.

Types of cakes you do ... wedding, grooms cakes, birthday, carved, buttercream and fondant designs.

SOME kind of pricing info, even if its just "final pricing depends on the final design. Our base price starts at $xx.xx."

At least a couple of really good color photos of your best cakes. A picture says a thousand words.

Are you running any show specials? "Book your wedding within 3 weeks and receive a 5% discount"

At the bottom, show what action you want them to take .... "Call us to set your sampling appointment."

And just to clarify ... you say your business is "new". Is it a legal business? If not, I'd stay away from any bridal shows. If you are legal, then have a great time at your first show! You'll love it! thumbs_up.gif

Debi has given you great advice.

I would only emphasize....make sure your brochure looks very professional. I know someone who goes to bridal shows and her handout looks very "homemade." It makes one wonder how her cakes will look.

Also, make sure that all grammar and spellings are correct.

Make it clean, neat, and easy to read.

Good luck, have fun, and smile! icon_smile.gif

Ditto tlegal part. Inspectors tend to hang out at bridal shows because it's easier to round up all the hobbists. Or at least round up all your info for a later surprise visit.
