|Bagel Plotting Continues...
||[Feb. 28th, 2008|09:59 pm]
I'm still working on bagels for Farmer's Market. First I'm seeing how easy it would be to mix the dough and shove it into the fridge for most of the day, so when actual baking time comes around I'm able to pull it out of the fridge for the first rise rather than mixing one batch of dough while shaping another. I already know the taste of the bagels is the same, it's just a matter of how long it takes the dough to start rising once it's out of the fridge. |
I'm also working on the application for the market, which is due in about 2 weeks (I'll get it in sooner). I have to list what I'd sell, and I'm including breads and cookies on the list in case I want to add them later. I get to include a copy of my retailer's license, which I may change from the Clothdaddy business to incorporating myself. I'll consult with my tax uncle next week when we go to do taxes. I pay him in bagels.
I just calculated up my fees for the Market, and realized that it will take several weekends before I actually start making money. Let's hope that the bagels are a hit. The consoling factor is that if it fails, I know that I've wasted more money and gotten a lot less on other ventures. Just look at that huge bold of bamboo knit fabric in the basement, which turned out to be too light for what I needed.
