Wisconsin Grilled Cheese Championship- This event gets bigger and better every year. I knew I didn't have enough cupcakes going into the event (I had a lot weekend orders, a wedding, and wedding delivery), but I would have never guessed that I would sell over 300 cupcakes in two hours! I literally felt like I was slinging cupcakes left and right. Next year I hope to have a LOT more cupcakes available! On the bright side, selling out gave me time to grab some amazing food truck food- cheese curds and a panini!
Little behind the scenes tidbit: I got back from a wedding delivery just in time to run this event! My mom did my morning pickups for me at my shop while my dad went with me to a wedding delivery. It was a long way from Dodgeville and somewhere I had never been before...my dad didn't need to go with me, but boy oh boy am I glad he did! I had no idea where I was going...even though I wrote down directions and tried mapping on my phone...if he wasn't there I probably would have ended up in Minnesota or something crazy! My husband set up the cupcakes and manned my station until I was able to get there. From there, I took over tossing cupcakes to everyone while my mom collected money for me. It was a true family effort that day!
Little behind the scenes tidbit: I was in a hurry (like usual) and completely forgot to bring a snack or even water with me. Thankfully, the Grumpy Troll booth next to me had water...and delicious Sunflower Beer; and my husband stopped by with Wyatt so I could see them and grab food from some of the other stands.
Behind the scenes tidbit- Of course....once again I was in a hurry. My husband did a morning wedding delivery while I did weekend pickups at my shop; I ran all my goodies out to White Oak Savanna; I then did a wedding delivery with Wyatt while my husband set up the cupcakes at White Oak Savanna...and I once again arrived just in time to run my booth...without a coat! Do you remember how chilly it was on Saturday?! The thermometer didn't say it was very cold...but let me know tell you-I was mighty chilly. Don't worry, I got scolded by plenty of attendees!
Some local vendors have created monthly Ladies' Nights that also take place at Cobblestone Coffee House. Various local vendors/consultants set up, you stop in and shop, grab some Steph's Sweet Treats (I make sure the cases are stocked up for you!) and enjoy wine from the wine bar. You should definitely check it out!
Don't forget about my next event...the one that is near and dear to my heart- Steph's Sweet Treats Customer Appreciation Day!! Mark your calendars, invite your friends-spread the word. Most importantly.... stop and enjoy yourself-I want to thank each and every one of you for getting me and this business to the place it is today (and hope and push for even more growth).
Thanks for another week of orders! And thank you for helping Steph's Sweet Treats win in three categories for the Best of the Best of Iowa County!
