Yep, that time of the month again! Yesterday afternoon I baked my Plain oatcakes, so today was the turn of the Garlic and Herb ones.
Ingredients all gathered!
The best smelling dough by miles. Mmmm
First couple of batches cooling with you the box of Plain.
I have only sampled one, but it was delicious. Next step is to box them up once they are cool to let them settle for a day or two. Packaging on Friday night!
See you Saturday. There will also be cake!
Just a bit like this! Mmm, vegan chocolate fudge cake.
So it was market day again today. I missed the last one, I think because of post #brexit blues, but tried to make up for it today by trialling my Chocolate Fudge cake. I’ve worked on the recipe and I’m pretty pleased with the result.
Every last bit of that sold, so I shall declare that a winner.
The stall looked rather nice today. The cake was quite as eye catcher, so definitely worth it. I may consider taking orders for whole cakes for resale, feel free to contact me via my Facebook page if you are interested.
The oatcakes also sold well again. there’s only a small supply left at Wright’s shop, so be sure to grab them quick if you missed the market today!
My stall complete with info board! Thanks to Iain for help with that!
It wasn’t the busiest market today, and I didn’t make a profit but I did cover my costs.
Was it worth it? Absolutely. I learned a lot of things and now know what I need to do next
— A small amount of samples would be a good idea. Yes, it will eat into what I make, but I am pretty confident about the taste and texture of my oatcakes so I am positive once most people have a taste, they will be encouraged to buy.
— I need to add that they are not suitable for coeliacs to my sign.
— Need a best before date (they keep at least 2 weeks, but I think I will say 10 days in future, just to be sure.
— I think biscuits would be a wise addition. I have a good recipe to work with.
— Anyone who has bought/tasted them before bought some and I had good feedback from them.
— My mum’s wonderful display attracted a good bit of attention, so that is a definite bonus.
I now have a possibility of selling them at the local shop, so that’s a major bonus. Hopefully that will become a regular order!
All in all, I am pleased and exhausted!
So it’s Market day tomorrow. Am I ready?
Packaging tested. Looks pretty good. Seems like a lot of Oatcakes though!
Mum's finished the display. I think it's awesome.
And Iain helped me pack up all the Oatcakes. Still seems like a lot!
Just got to pop those babies in the case and we’re go!
Market is 10am to 12pm at Dalry Town Hall! See you there.
