Why can't you just take your regular buttercream, add cinnamon and add maple syrup instead of your regular liquid...    If that would make it too runny, boil the maple syrup down to make it thicker and use it that way...
My roll out sugar cookie recipe doesn't call for any leavening (unless you are counting the eggs)... no baking soda... no baking powder... nada... and they are soft...   I think it depends on the recipe...
How many days or hours was the fair?  300 seems like a lot to make... Did you get any statistical data on how many people were going to be there and used that to calculate how much to make?   6 flavors is sometimes too many... The more choices people have, the harder it typically is to make that choice... and then sometimes too many choices leads to no choice at all...   What kind of packaging did you use?  That would determine if people purchased or not... could they...
I agree about the two fridges deal... My parents have two regular refrigerators and a stand up freezer... neither of them has any type of food business... Thank goodness they have a generator for when the power goes out so that they don't loose all that frozen stuff... lol...   Though, I can see the whole two stove thing...   Which federal law requires a grease trap?  I only ask, because the CFL in Ohio doesn't require that (nor the separation of your groceries vs...
I think that for many it is a visual thing... but there are differences in flavor from my milk and dark chocolate cake mixes...    For my milk chocolate I use melted but cool milk chocolate and regular or dutch cocoa powder...   For my dark chocolate I used melted but cool dark chocolate, regular or dutch cocoa powder, and black cocoa powder...    The dark is visually darker, but also has a more prominent chocolate taste...
As for getting more custom orders... Did you ever think about approaching other local businesses about them ordering party trays of sweets or the monthly office birthday cake?  I do not know if that would fit into your business model, but it is an option if you offer those types of things...
Ah... I must have missed it that it was only for the home label thing... I haven't looked at the paperwork in a while since I have stopped selling...   And then that means you can use that type four font that I will probably need a magnifying glass to read... 
I know that the State of Ohio has a minimum font size for their labels for those working under the Cottage Food Law... but it is 8pt I believe... which is rather small... at least to this girl who is used to using 14 for most of the things she does... lol...  So before you drop down to a size 4 font, check your regulations too... Also, changing the font from say Courier New to Arial automatically makes it smaller without changing the font size...
Pat them into the top of the cookie before baking it... They won't melt in if they are the sanding sugars or the sugar in the raw type sugar...
Have your tried contacting the copyright owner of the logo?  I believe it is Hasbro...   They would be able to give you permission to create an edible image.  Most likely if you can't find one, they haven't given anyone permission to use it in that manner.   You may need to show them examples of previous works that would let them know how their image may turn out.
