Regular VS " taller" regular/jumbo what sells better?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 

What do you think would sell better at a farmers market? I was suppose to start the market a week ago but it rained out so this week is my first week. I have a bunch or regular or tall/jumbo liners. I'm not sure which ones would be better to make. Do more people go for the normal or taller/jumbo? The taller liners I have are 2" base with 2" sides so it fits into my normal cupcake pan but they are about double the size of my standard cupcakes. I don't want the in between sizes because after ordering and shipping they get kinda expensive(plus I ordered some a week ago just to try out and they haven't even been shipped yet! SO annoying.) while I can pick up the normal or jumbo less then 5 minutes from my house for 1/2 the price. My husband thinks the jumbo is just too much cake but he's not a cake person so I figured i'd ask what you guys think would be better to sell. Thanks!

I sell regular sized cupcakes at my farmer's market and they sell well. No one has complained about the size.

I personally feel that jumbo is too much cake, and a regular sized cupcake is plenty. And there is a chef saying that goes, "Always leave them wanting more." You don't want to stuff them icon_smile.gif

Yes, my husband said if they buy a jumbo they have no reason to buy 2-3 more of them since the jumbo is enough for 2 people who just want a snack. Guess he's pretty smart lol.

Never question your husbands taste, or smarts, after all, he married you!
