Cupcakes will work in a clear plastic cup with a lid. Not too hard to find. It's kind of a squatty cup.

I just did my first arts and crafts fair as a vendor. It was a fantastic experience but boy do I have a lot to learn! Here are some of the things I learned after the first one. People buy what their kids like. Having said that the most popular item was my giant sugar cookie with glaze and sprinkles. They also loved the decorated animal cookies. I sold out of 2 types of brownies the first few hours. I also did a sampler with 5 glazed sugar cookies for $1 and the kids liked that. Cupcakes went over well too. I did these really cute hamburger and french fry baskets. People loved them (thought they were real) but they just didn't sell. i think people didn't want to spend $6 even though they were worth more. I did some of my Moms old reciped (raspberry thumbprints) and I had some folks really nostalgic. I wanted to do whole cakes but decided against it and was glad I did. People don't want to carry that stuff. It was SO exciting! Be sure to give out samples and if you have a book of your work bring it. The best part was all the jobs I got from it. GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN!!!
