Nice idea for egg boxes....

Post by darkbrowneggs » 12 Apr 2013, 23:23

when I am browsing the forum different piccies come up in the top right hand corner, and I think this one shows a really good idea for those of you who sell your eggs

Sparklepeeps was just starting to sell her eggs when I joined this forum, and that photo that caught my eye! It's a lovely idea!

Yes - if I was selling eggs I would most definitely do this. I have to say its brilliant marketing :grin: It even makes me want to buy her eggs :grin:

Sparklepeeps is an amazingly creative woman.

She makes fantastic cakes and those of you on Facebook can see them here.

I don 't think she'll mind me sharing this photo. B y far her best cake in my opinion and so clever.

She says the only things that are not cake or icing are, the pins in the pin cushion, the tape measure and the paper around the wool.

:grin: hello! :wave:

I little birdie (who's recently become a new sheep and piggy mum) told me about this post so I popped by to say hello. This is such a blast from the past! That label took me ages to make (I was obviously very lonely and boring back then :roll: )

I had to erase the back ground of each photo in Microsoft paint and each egg and chicken took me a whole evening, but worth the effort once it was done.

I pop on here every now and again, especially when I'm stuck with a chicken problem, but I've only got two chucks now, it's dangerous me coming here because I start putting chicken breeds onto wish lists. Move away from the forum, move away from the forum!!! =;

No..... keep coming back, someone as clever as you would be missed. I really am in awe of your abilities. I was quite proud of some cakes I have made in the past , but compared to your efforts...... well there simply is no comparision. Do you do it professionally or was it just a one off to prove to yourself it could be done. :grin:

Not professionally, just for fun but people do ask me to make them a cake every now and again.
