Raewyn Read - Cakes by Raewyn ...

I agree with all the other posts, it’s best to put as many guildines like the rental fee in place early on so you are taken seriously. Also as for the mixing your work with others, I recently did some cupcakes for a little girls birthday party. Her Mum made an amazing dessert table, but I was unaware that she had purchased products from other bakers; cake pops, cookies and assorted lollies etc. At first I was a bit shocked as I hadn’t realised my work would be displayed alongside others, but on reflection, my cupcakes looked great and they were the centrepiece of the table. The Mum was fabulous in posting photos and making sure each business had a credit and a thank you. Also, my motto is…life is too short for cakepops! (totally stolen, if you know who said it first please thank them lol!) so in the end I felt glad to be included, honoured to have my work as the centrepiece and SO relieved that I hadn’t had to say NO I don’t do cakepops! :)
