450 cake pops! I had TWO WEEKS to prepare!! WHOA was this exciting stuff!!
As much as I thought I had prepared for this, there was still more I could have done to have been more efficient. I probably should have ordered my supplies in excess, because I ended up needing more of some things and had to buy them last minute (thank goodness the baking supply store had what I needed!). I should have planned out my days making a timeline of where I should be at a certain point in the day- so I have a bench-mark to base my progress. I should have better prepared the little things in advance, such as prepping the cupcake liners. There are so many "should have, could have" moments that I have learned from this experience, I am positive I'll be much more prepared for my next order. (I'm also very hard on myself, if you haven't noticed!).
A special thank you to my client who gave me this wonderful opportunity to introduce cody cakes to the world, for giving me credit at their trade show and allowing me to have business cards on the table. I will never forget who jump started cody cakes and will be forever grateful to you.
Here's to many more opportunities!
