Cupcakes were a success!!

Well well well...

Today was the big cupcake sale day and boy it went well. Probably had something to do with Con putting a message up on our intranet. We had people come from all over the campus to buy cupcakes. Some even wanted boxes full of them (probably to hand to other staff members).

We started our day at around 11am. Daniel, Flick and I met in the canteen and gathered our resources. Moved a few tables and set up. Amy, Leigh and a few other classmates showed up to give us their batch of cupcakes and help write signs and label what flavoured cupcakes we had. Before we had finished setting up we had sold 3 cupcakes. I guess they were just that good!

As lunch went on we got pretty busy and sold over half of our 4 tables worth full of cupcakes. By the end of lunch though things had calmed down quite a bit. It was at that stage Leigh and Amy started walking to and around all the buildings on campus selling the rest of the cupcakes. They sold out at least 3 times before we were left with ten. After that we pretty much gave the rest away. None of us wanted to take them back home.

The day was a complete success though having raised $475.20. A job well done I'd say.

I will be back shortly to post some photos from our busy busy day!
If I think of anything else to add I'll add that too.
Hope you're all doing well and are having a great day off!

Update no.1

Hey guys, me again!

So last week in class we discussed where everybody was up to in regards to their groups and the tasks they're involved with in the lead up to our exhibition in November. Gosh, November. Seems like ages away. Never the less I'm sure the time will fly.

Anyway so we have our first fundraising event coming up in a few weeks. We're holding a cupcake sale on the 13th of April which should be interesting. We'll be getting as many people as possible involved. We've made posters, we've filled out the paperwork and we've priced ingredients etc. We'll probably just end up making the premixed cupcakes you get at Coles. Let's hope we sell heaps!

I'll post again in a couple of days after our next meeting because I cannot remember what else we discussed last week. That and my mind is like an out of order filing cabinet right now. Some of my illustration buddies are getting ready for Supernova as well as trying not to fall behind with everything else we have going on... Speaking of Supernova... (This is relevant I swear) We're hoping to get some business cards organised and printed this week to take and hand out at Supernova. Who knows, we may get a few extra people coming to see our amazing work! Here's hoping anyway.

Until we meet again, I bid you farewell. Hope you all enjoy the rest of your day/ night/ week etc.
