So, a friend and I are going to start doing the market circuit this spring, and along with our aprons, handbags and other sewn things, my friend would like to have a little display and sell cupcakes.

Our issue is that a lot of the places are outside, and in the summer heat, the icing will melt- any ideas to construct a (very inexpensive) display case that we could put ice under, or something, and it would keep the cakes cool?


We can't afford a little refrigerated case, and we want it to be mostly glass so we can display the cupcake trees - like :
 

I know that cupcake are more bake-sale, but any ideas?

hm. all i can think of is keep a small amount on display, use a mini stand, and just replenish as needed. keep the cupcakes in one of those blue or red carry coolers.keep some sort of net thing around the cupcakes to keep bug off em too.

In most places (I believe), you need to cook in a certified kitchen to be able to sell food.....

Ain't this the truth!!! I was recently looking into starting a cupcake business...these are the things I learned
- you need to cook in a commercial kitchen
- you need to have liability insurance (in the off chance someone gets food poisioning and decides to sue)
- you need a food handlers permit

It was a sad wake-up call that was pretty much dream shattering for me....
Oh, I live in the state of Florida so check the Dept of Agriculture for whichever state you live in...but the majority do require you to cook out of a certified kitchen (which is good in a way, but stinks in a way too).
