Well I am officially going to be selling my Cupcakes this saturday @ a craft/farmers market.
It is here in my home town @ the American Legion, and I am really excited about it!
None of you really know me that well yet, But i have a tendancy to over do it. When I have party's I always cook too much food, and I always have a take away gift ready for all my guests. Perfectly packaged and always appreciated, I have really tried to take
it down a notch. You all have no idea how hard that is for me, I live to do things for others and It really makes me feel good about myself. I just really like to make people happy.
So this new endevor is really up my ally. I have done some catering and cakes for people as well, so I have some experience, but this is a whole new ball game for me.
I went online last night and looked up packaging for my cupcakes, and cookies. Wow, can I say that there is so much out there. I ended up going with a pink cupcake box, that holds single cupcakes and I am going to put my Sweet Treats logo on printer stickers
from staples. The boxes were only 26 cents each with the cupcake holder insert. The only down side is that you have to order in large quantities, 200 per package.
Now that your getting to know me better, you should know that I am a perfectionist, and because of that you should also know that I have, along with the cupcake boxes and liners , purchased bags to put the goodies in as well. Those were 12 cents ea. 200/package
also. I hope you're not doing the math yet because it isn't pretty.
I guess you could say it is a bit like OCD, I have a compulsion to match and coordinate all that I do.
I feel that it makes you seem put together, and I am a details person. If it is what I look for in a product, I feel that it is what everyone looks for. Is that wrong? lol......
So I am eagerly awaiting my shipment of supplies and I have been really perfecting my recipes so that they are worth the work and presentation that I have planned. I will take pictures @ the craft fair and post them here.
Wish me Luck!!
