Mini Cupcakes for our School Cake Stall

Mini Cupcakes for our School Cake Stall

Now that my two children have started kindergarten this year, I am entering the world of parent-organized fundraising to help purchase resources. With a cake stall coming up soon, I am going to get my daughters, Bear and Bee, to help make a version of their favorite mini cupcakes. These Strawberry Yogurt Cupcakes are moist and delicious and their mini versions are sure to be a hot seller.

Packing The Mini Cupcakes For A Cake Stall:

1. Place 8 cupcakes onto a small foam tray or foil-covered piece of thick cardboard.

2. Wrap with plastic wrap or place inside a clear cellophane bag or use clear takeaway containers to hold the cupcakes.

3. Don’t forget to add a label printed with the price, the name of the item, and a simple list of ingredients. This will help customers with allergies to avoid any trigger foods.
