Markets and competitions oh my!

Wow! What a busy couple of weeks. I now notice I forgot to do my blog last weekend. Ooops.

Yesterday I held my first market stall!! I held a stall at Whimsical Markets  which is held at the Playford Civic Centre, Elizabeth. I'd spent many nights doing preparations for the first market, and I made about 600 macarons!!

As I was packing them up to head to the markets I was frightened I'd made too many! I'm well known for over-catering and I was convinced I'd done it again!

Well. How wrong was I!! I sold out in about two hours!! I am still in shock! AND not to mention incredibly *scared* of how many I now need to make for future market stalls I have!!

I want to do a thank you to my beautiful friend Selina for helping me out, your help was so very appreciated, and I look forward to paying you in macarons next weekend :)
Another thank you goes to my awesome Father in law - no, to my awesome Dad for also helping me out. Firstly he came to just help me set up - that turned into a quick dash home because I'd forgotten my table cloth (oops!!) and then he stayed for the day as the mad rush came and he helped with the cash-cash :) 

Here's a picture of my stall from the market yesterday, taken by Simmone Edwards Photography. I had to quickly grab Simmone to make sure I had evidence I even had stock! The first ten minutes of the day were the most insane. But a totally awesome insane at that!!

Yesterday was a big day for many reasons, not only for the market - but it was the final day for my "Suggest a Flavour" competiton!

I've sent emails to  the winners of the vouchers - they receive  a 20% off voucher for their order - but not on flavours they chose... only flavours from my current range.... but drumroll please for the winning flavour....


I look forward to giving these a go, I'm thinking - strawberry buttercream with fresh strawberry pieces.... mmmm sounds yummy to me! 

Thank you to all the entries!!

And thank you for all who came to see me at the markets yesterday!

Well, now I am caught up on all things LMM, now its off to catch up on my house-duties, they were soooo neglected! Sorry husband! ;)
