I have survived my first two major events. First was the Home Party Extravaganza at the YMCA last week on Tuesday evening. I sold cupcakes and advertised my business. I am hoping to actually get some orders from a couple of the people who stopped by my table. They both have special dietary requirements and I told them I would be more than happy to provide what they needed. The second event was at St. Aloysous School and was the church's fundraiser, Fall Festival. There were 66 vendors there and another cupcake lady. Her cupcakes were decorated more elaborately than mine and were more expensive. I had more flavors to choose from including the Cinnamon Swirl with Maple Bacon frosting. Made $100 and again promises of future orders. Now I just have to wait for those special orders to come through. I have another craft fair this weekend and think I am going to put a sign up sheet for those who would want to order in the future so I have contact info. See if that helps me any. All and all not a bad weekend, but feel it is the ordering of cupcakes that will make my business unless I open up an actual store. Have had several people ask me if I would open a bakery. Interesting thought, but I do not have the capital to even think about that at this time. Will keep it in the back of my mind for the future. Also not sure I want to be tied down to this area of the country. Time will tell. If you are out and about this weekend in East Liverpool please stop by the YMCA in Calcutta on Saturday from 9-5 pm to get your Katz Kupcake.
