Etsy Shop and Table Top

I've finally got round to updating the Etsy shop with some more recent cake creations! One is a cake I made for my son's christening which was so much fun to make! It was lovely to make a cake which I got to eat as well!

This week has also seen my first foray into face-to-face selling, with my first table top sale. Though the event itself was apparently quite quite it was thoroughly enjoyable and I learnt an awful lot. It certainly helps to talk about your business with people who are total strangers as it forces you to say what is important.

It was great to get feedback on my crafts as well as the positive mmm's about the free cupcakes available on the stall! I've got the enthusiasm and more importantly the confidence to test myself further with the craft items, and am keen to push the cakes as much as possible too.

Next week will hopefully bring the launch of my new Curiositea branding! The need for business cards became very apparent this weekend, and I can really see the Curiositea Shop identity and ethos emerging.
