Storage of cupcakes at markets
I have my first market in a few weeks and will be taking a few packs of cupcakes to sell.
I wouldn’t usually do a market, but it is a fundraiser one for a friends child so i’m making an exception.
My question is:
I will be using American buttercream and ganash on my cupcakes, and wasn’t sure if I should take something to keep them cool.
The market will go for 6 hours including the time for setting up, and I thought that seemed like a long time for cupcakes to be sitting out in a stadium of hundreds of people.
but then I also know that American buttercream and ganash don’t have to be refridgerated lol.
What would you do??
And also, for those of you that do the odd market, what have you found to be the most popular flavours and themes that people like?
I also plan on taking a few decorated dummy cakes, and samples along with a portfolio of photos of cakes I have already made, for those customers wanting to make orders for events.
would you keep your dummy cakes afterwards in a box for another market? or throw it and make more for the next one.
I’m looking at doing maybe 3-4 markets a year.
Any help or opinions would be greatly appreciated
