Yay! I'm SO excitied!

post #1 of 35
Thread Starter 
So last week I made a couple dozen Halloween cookies and packaged them individually to get some orders in for the holidays. I know a bunch of people at our local Starbucks who passed them around for me, the bank, etc.

Well, I took some to a local home-baked market and they LOVED them. I just finished another 9 dozen cookies to give out more samples today. Just when I was packaging them up I got a call from the market, they want to order cookies to sell in their store! Turns out they gave some of my samples to their customers and every wants more. I told the women I just finished about 100 cookies and she wants them ALL!

I'm so happy you have no idea. Especially since I just started doing cookies in March.

The market also wants to sell some of my cupcakes and cookies through Christmas. I'm so excited I just had to share the news. icon_biggrin.gif

Sometimes I wish my hubby were a cookie. Then when he ticked me off I could just bite off his head.

Thanks everyone! icon_smile.gif

When I dropped the cookies off today, the women told me to hurry and get back to baking....the cookies will be gone by the weekend. Oh lordy, what have I gotten myself into? lol

I'm charging $2 a cookie as a starting rate, more for the larger ones. Do you think that's too low?

Pictures coming soon I promise. Hopefully by the weekend. I've been in the kitchen baking up a storm today for the market and more samples. Already got 15 dozen done...just have to ice them now.
