This year I tried my first Christmas craft sales. I brought 114 cupcakes, and left with 18 - I walked around downtown and gave them to random people on the street. It was funny and sad to see how surprised people are when you offer them something nice and FREE!
I used fondant to cut out shapes and gel and vodka to paint details. I let them dry a couple of days and stood them on the buttercream. Vanilla, chocolate and carrot cakes and baileys, vanilla and cream cheese icing. Everyone loved them!!
From the editor:
Congratulations on your first craft sale Lucie. I just love the snowmen in particular. Their ittle hats and scarves are adorable.
Some great ideas, as always. Thanks for sharing.
