Country Living Pop-Up Cake Stall

Flower Pot Cake Stall at Country Living Spring Fair, Alexandra Palace.

Following the popularity of our Poinsettia adorned Christmas fruit cakes baked in terracotta plant pots that we sold on our Christmas stall amongst Hitchin market, we decided to develop a Spring flower range. We sent samples of the cakes to the editors of Country Living Magazine, who loved them so much NHESC were promptly awarded a stall for the Pop Up Market section at the Country Living Spring Fair at Alexandra Palace. This was great news, particularly as there had been 1000s of applications from fledgling businesses, all trying to secure a stall in order to help expand their business.
The Flower Pot Cakes were prepared by the combined efforts of the Catering and Enterprise groups, and over the course of a few days, with the students demonstrating teamwork, cooperative working and determination, we managed to produce 160 high quality, hand decorated cakes. 
On Thursday 27th March, the Sales Team were taken to the Fair, the stall was set up and we were open for business! The cakes were very well received by the general public, and with students honing their customer service and negotiation skills, an enjoyable and successful day was had by all.
