We set up our stall outside local cafe WaiKikaMooKau, I really appreciate them letting us take up so much of their space on a busy Saturday afternoon, our table ended up having to be double the size I'd agreed with them because we just had SO MUCH stuff.
I made this awesome sign, I have no artistic skills but I'm okay with a pair of scissors & some double sided tape. Is it just me or does it look like it was made by a 5 year old?
Below you can see our cupcake stand with cupcakes made by me & Ms Cupcake, in front of the stand are choco coco oat balls & red pepper, thyme & tofu mini filo pastry quiches made by Laura Dakin the head chef on Sea Shepherd's ship, Spelt Courgette Muffins that I made using the recipe from the Babycakes cookbook, Peanut Butter Banana Chocolate Chip Cake by a local baker, more cupcakes, my gooey chocolate brownies & gluten free banana breads - another Babycakes recipe.
On the stand at the back are cookies donated by a couple of local bakers. We had double chocolate, peanut butter choc chip & orange. Yum! We packaged some up all pretty...
Here's a close up of the cupcakes! We have Earl Grey Tea & Crunchie by Ms Cupcake and then Peanut Butter Bombshell, Sweetie, Double Chocolate, Candy Cane Joe Joe & Raspberry by my very new business Operation Icing...I think I need to write a whole new blog post about that don't I?!
In the bottom right corner of that picture you can see Kip's delicious Shortbread & the Gluten Free Chocolate Chip Cookies she made using the recipe in The Vegan Cookie Connoisseur. Kip also made the Gingerbread Biscotti with a lemon glaze which we were calling "magical sticks" by the end of the day thanks to a suggestion by one of our customers.
Kip also made Giant Peanut Butter Cookies which were really popular & Baked Bean & Cheezly Cornish Pasties, I bought one as soon as I saw them come out of her bag & they were SO delicious. I want to hire her to live in my house & make these for me every day!
Talking of popular, all of the cupcakes were totally sold out by 1:30! Next time I'll make 6 or 7 batches instead of 4.
Sadly I didn't manage to snap any pictures of them but halfway through the day we received a double chocolate & jam layer cake & four, yes four, chocolate cakes to add to our selection of goodies. It was perfect timing as we were just running out of cupcakes.
