Cupcakes were a success!!
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!
