It's the mark of a big day, my very first bake sale as Evil Delight! It was a cute school event that motivated kids’ interest in artistic jobs of the world. This career fair was themed after the ever-popular, Comic-Con. Everyone dressed up as different characters, including the staff and myself. Phoenix Comic-con was even involved and had artists and Cosplayers to attend. In case you don’t know what a Cosplayer is, they are individuals that dress up from head to toe as a character from a popular media in our pop-culture.
I was given my own table with the other food options; pizza and Jamba Juice. It was nice not having too much competition, it gave me some breathing room. Pricing was my main struggle. For them everything was a dollar, and I had to make a tough decision of changing my pricing to match them. Next time, I'll do my regular pricing now that they have a taste. But I saw this more as a marketing opportunity to get my brand out there. Some of the students helped me set up my table, which turned out super cute. Although as a note to myself, a shorter table would be much easier to maintain for one person. As I finished setting up, I was bombarded by people! I sold half of my products in the first 45 minutes!!! By the time I packed up, there were only two crème brule left.
All in all, it was a great experience and I hope to be invited next year. I look forward to my next Bake Sale Extravaganza!
