Craft Fair Series 2017 | Cake in a Mug

Posted in Events
on September 20, 2017

It’s craft fair season here in Texas. And what better place to get those cute small gifts for teachers, coworkers and gift exchange Christmas parties than at a craft fair. If you have missed any previous posts on my Craft Fair ideas you can see them all by clicking HERE

This year I have signed up for four fairs and hoping to make a small profit to help with my own Christmas Budget. Here is the latest craft idea I have created for my booth.

Cake in a Mug

It is a simple craft but a great seller at fairs.

I found the mugs at the Goodwill and Dollar store. The cake mix packet is by Duncan Hines and coffee mix is from Folgers. I added some shredded paper and a few coffee candies then wrapped it all up in cellophane with a big bow.

The desire to create is one of the deepest yearnings of the human soul.

    Hi Kathy. I am selling them for $5. I found the cake mix packets at Walmart. I tried one and they are really good.

    Fun. I forgot about the Goodwill stores and other thrift stores for mugs. I send some fun little treat bags and stuff like that to some cyber friends who are demos. One loves the holiday tea I sent her last year in with her box of goodies. Maybe a really fun tea mug this year with a little cake mix for one with the tea would be fun. Something a little different. Thanks for getting my brain to working!
