Only 5 days to go, till I find out whether anyone actually wants to buy my cakes - and it really is a leap in the dark for me, but I am very excited about it. I’ve got a stall at the Wollaton Farmer’s Market, located in the Co-Op car park - on Saturday morning, so its all systems go from now on.
Last week I set up my stall in the back garden to see how it all went together, and was quite pleased with the results, the navy gazebo is easy to put up, looks smart, and just big enough - and the sturdy folding table was suitably transformed with my check cloth, baskets for cakes and little chalk boards for prices.
This week I’ve sorted out my Public Liability Insurance, and ordered plastic carrier bags and gloves - and realising that there is much more to this than just baking! So hopefully it will all come together smoothly.
Thursday and Friday will be spent baking, so I hope I don’t have any disasters - the kitchen will be out of bounds to everyone - woman on a mission!
