To sample or not to sample...

The decision to give out free samples is totally up to you. They can be a great conversation starter, especially if you are a little on the shy side, I mean who says no to free cake, right? But on the other hand they can be messy.

If you do decide to give out free samples then be prepared with a stack of pretty napkins, you can find a colour to match your branding.

Also make sure you cut your samples small enough so they are bite size. One bite can massively help reduce the amount of crumbs in front of your stand!

 You must also make sure you have the allergen information to hand, just in case someone asks.

Top Tips

  • When taking contact details from couples, make sure you write them down so you can read the writing!
  • Have your calendar ready in case couples want to book a consultation there and then.
  • If you don't want to display your cake prices, make sure you know them! You will be asked as you must look like you know your stuff. This will also mean customers know if your cakes are in their budget or not.
  • Use dummy cakes rather than real cakes so you can use them more than once, this will also help to keep your costs down.
