Craft Lake City

I sold cupcakes and macarons at the Craft Lake City fair this weekend. It was a lot of work, but also really fun! I met a lot of really great people, and sold out both days! On Friday morning, before the fair began, my cupcakes got a little mention on the morning news: http://fox13now.com/2013/08/09/craft-lake-city-preview/

Here was my booth, and my niece, who came along to help. We had to be there to set up on Friday at 1:30, even though the selling didn't start until 5:00 pm! I had all the cupcakes and macarons in boxes, with the frostings in piping bags in a cooler, so we could frost everything fresh and not have melty buttercream!

We kept out 3 of each flavor at a time. Katie frosted and I handled the money. We were both very busy!

I sold 8 different kinds of cupcakes: red velvet, cherry filled chocolate with cream cheese frosting, chocolate peanut butter, oreo, coconut with lime filling, pink vanilla, triple chocolate, and salted caramel.

I had 6 different macarons: lavender milk chocolate, vanilla bean, raspberry, honey lavender, chocolate, and salted caramel.

I baked and sold 20 dozen cupcakes and 14 dozen macarons over the two days.

The vendor in the booth next to me was selling "altered landscapes" - she took landscape paintings from yard sales and thrift stores and painted in sci-fi characters. It was really awesome. She also had little ceramic figurines, like unicorns, which she had "zombified." I let her zombify my wedding cake on Saturday night. It was a big hit with the crowds!

It was an awesome fair!
