Last Saturday I took my goodies to Ellesmere Carnival… I thought I was well prepared, and I was, apart from the small fact that I didn’t realise you had to bring your own table and tent. So there we were with a whole load of cakes but nothing to display them on and nothing to shelter us from the rain! However, it was not a lost cause… they managed to find us a table and put us in the beer tent! Note to self – always read information properly and never ‘just assume’ that everything will be okay!
Anyway, we managed to get everything set up and sorted, the only downside was that we weren’t in with all the other stalls so had quite a few hours of waiting for people to come and find the beer tent… which wasn’t until around 2 o clock :p However, I can’t complain as it was completely my own fault!
Things soon started to get busy though and I managed to sell most of my cakes by the end so it all turned out okay. I also had brought with me a few new goodies such as coffee cake, white chocolate and coconut blondies and popcorn lollipops (very popular with the children!), aswell as the old favourites – chocolate and butterscotch brownies and cherry and coconut slice.
Apart from that I have just been getting on with my usual orders and trying out a few new recipes to take with me to the Oswestry Farmers Market on Friday. Fingers crossed the rain stops!
