Gourmet stawberries, bacon roses?

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 

Do any of you offer these from your business? If so how well do they sell. Bacon is a huge craze right now so I did a search for bacon roses. I found some that had the bottoms dipped on chocolate and had gumpaste leaves. They were really cute. I was just wondering how they would sell.

I rhink that they would sell well because number one they are super pretty, number two if they don't like them WITH the cake they can remove them! It is worth a try!

Oh I meant selling them alone for anniversaries, birthdays any occasion where you may give a bouquet of roses. I will just have to make a practice bouquet and put them on my site and see if there is any interest. I could do them like the cupcake bouquet

That is a good idea! I would love it! I thought like as the little flowers that people often put on cakes! Sorry for the confusion!

You could market a "bacon bouquet" during Father's Day..I bet it would go over well. :)

I offer chocolate dipped strawberries and a couple of cakes and cupcakes with bacon. I also offer chocolate dipped bacon for a couple of restaurants I cater for, but it is not on the website.

so it sells well?

I'm pretty sure cottage food laws don't usually allow bakers to sell meats or chocolate dipped strawberries.

I don't fall under cottage food laws. Never even heard of it before I came on here...

Well, I just read that Va does have those food laws but unfortunately Norfolk does not allow it at all. I have to bake in a commercial kitchen

In Texas, a law was just passed disallowing cities to write laws that interfere with cottage bakers. That part of the law was pretty easy to get through because state legislators did NOT like the idea that city councils would find ways to go around them.  We'd had several who attempted to outlaw cottage food operations within their city limits when it was clear they just disagreed with the state law and they've had to back down. Don't know if this angle is worth looking into.

It's not a big deal because my daughter owns the restaurant I bake my orders in. I could move 15 minutes away to Virginia Beach apparently though and have no issues. Citizens were fighting it awhile back but it sounded like they were still going to require a second kitchen completely closed off from the rest of the house.
