I, too, am not making the leap from "retro" to "pirate" unless you heavily incorporate "loot" or "treasure" into your language. Which you could do, of course.

Finding individual buyers is easier if someone else with a ready audience sells them for you. Visiting local shops where your stuff might fit in and talking to the purchasing person or owner would benefit you immensely, not only in possible sales but also in business experience.

Local first, world later. Almost every successful business person I know started locally first. It works.

I'm liking the Twinkle Tree standalone tree (not the one that gets cut off on the side),  but if you decided to, say, make it small or have it embroidered you'd have some difficulty with those small branches. I'd go with fewer branches, and a few larger stars.

It's also a good idea to see how any given logo "works" in black and white. If you can get it to black and white and it still looks good, so much the better.

If the picture part of your logo can stand on its own, so much the better.

In any case, you can have a black dot as a logo if you market your butt off. So it's best to stick with something you like and gives you a spark of confidence.

Nuts, I was going to say that if you have a candy supply store around, they might have something as well.

Wedding favor packaging is nifty:

However, I like Lilly-Queen's idea of the nutritional facts thingie - that's almost too cool. You might mount your jewelry on cardboard, get a small glassine bag to fit, and use a gold foil seal or custom logo sticker to keep it closed. "Nutrition" label on the back.

uline.com has every kind of box you might need.

Question is: What do you sell? Not every craft item is equal, and marketing your business is serious business. No point in engaging in unprofitable activities.

$6 IS cheap...too cheap. Go $10-15. What will that $2 buy you in the end? Nothing. At least get a lunch out of it!

I was going to say "Wow! That's a lot of oil!", too, but then realized it was all for two cakes, not one!

You could replace some of the oil with unsweetened applesauce, and cut the sugar to 2 1/2 cups.

When you say "dissolve starch in water" what "starch" are you talking about?

If I'm too cold for a smoothie (brrr - MN winters, y'all!) I eat soup for breakfast. I tend to skip the typical breakfast foods, as they put you into a rut and you eat all kinds of, well, crap for breakfast.

Soup is a terrific way to prepare you to tackle your day!
