I decided to go with a crusting buttercream (indydebi's that I've used for cupcakes for a long time) because most kiddos like to eat theirs right away. And if mom wants to put them away for later, she can.
I'm advertising it as "edible art for the young and young-at-heart!"
I will have four themed kits at a time (basic shapes, boy, girl, and whatever holiday/season we're in). I don't want to have tons made up, so I may just have the components in a cooler and "grab" from there. Hmmmm...
I haven't totally come to a conclusion about coming home with extra kits. Do I put the cookies and buttercream in the freezer for the next market/order. This particular buttercream recipe lasts a long time in the fridge, but I'm not sure about it being in and out. Same for the cookies, not sure if they'll do ok being re-frozen after being thawed. Some tests are in the works!
What do you think? Any tips or changes? Is there anything I'm not thinking of? Do you think they would sell at a craft fair or farmers market?
Thank you for any suggestions you could give me! So much to think about!
