I'm a big fan of chocolate bark, there's lots of variations one can do with those.
There's also little bags of puppy chow to for something different to cakes and fudge and whatnot.

I prefer biscuits, slices, sweets and dense cakes made from good quality ingredients. I'm a huge fan of the cake stall but so many people just make rubbish that it largely ends up in the bin with me not returning.

I find lighter cakes such as butter cakes, cupcakes, sponges, lamingtons and scones are always stale from cake stalls. I even purchased a banana bread recently that the woman raved about as it was her mothers recipe. Got home and tucked in and it tasted a week old sick.gif

Toffee. (like THESE)
Last time I bought some it was $3 for a tray of 6 mini ones.

If you are interested, I have a list of school fete recipes HERE.


Thank you Cathode, legend!

What is your favourite thing to buy from Cake Stalls?

How much would you pay for them?

Would you pay a little bit more (like 50 cents more) if you knew it was for a childrens charity?

Oh I just reread your post and realised it said 50c MORE. as opposed to the 50c I read. It depends what your starting price is. I think you need to keep the price fair but remember the goal is to make money for the charity. You shouldn't feel the need to sell for less then what you would pay elsewhere for a similar product.

May I ask the charity that its for?

Without a doubt, coconut ice. I would pay up to $5 depending on serving size biggrin.gif

Caramel slice, coconut ice, honey joys.

I also do like an old fashioned toffee, but they are impossible to eat, so a good toffee apple is something I like to find too.

Toffee, like cathode posted. I will pay through the nose ($1/piece) as its yum and getting so hard to find.

Chocolate fudge tempts me every time! I'd pay $2-$4 depending on amount.

Also love coconut ice, brownies, and homemade sweets like boiled lollies.

I love lemon slice with real lemons used
Anzac cookies in packs of 4 or 6
Oatmeal and raisen cookies in packs of 4 or 6
Mini muffins as individuals - to 'shut up a child' Or in packs of 4 or 6
Other good sellers are the classics like honey joys, toffees and yo yo's

I have seen lolly skewers at cake stalls - and they sell verty well - wooden skewers with bananas, milkbottles, raspberries and other jubes ...You can easily sell these for $1.50 for one or 3 for $3

Absolutely have a change tin handy!!

Rum balls would be my all time fave (without the rum flavouring), I would also buy fudge or brownies and possibly cupcakes or muffins. I prefer to avoid anything that has cream or may go off easily. I would pay more if it was going to a charity but then nearly every bake sale I have been to has been going to a charity/school or some other good cause.

Oh and my cheapness, is because I've only ever been to school cake stalls!

I find it hard to walk past a honey-jumble, and would happily pay up to $2 for one. My change would also end up in the tin that a PP suggested.

Biscuits/cookies. Either big single cookies, or a little bag.

I also know its unpopular, but I live fruit cake and never make it myself. I'd pay $10 for a little fruit cake - the grandmas at the church I voted at last election were selling these (about 10x10cm size) and said they'd made 50, and had already sold about 30 by 10:30 am!

I never thought of that I might make a few small fruit cakes and maybe some mud cakes

I made these over the weekend, http://www.kidspot.com.au/best-recipes/Fam...recipe+4003.htm, they're good for the novelty factor.

DS's kinder is having a stall at our local festival in a few weeks and I plan on making them for that, as well as caramel slice and brownies.
