                    Hankerie in ASEAN Coffee & Art Fringe Event 2013 @ Publika

                    Another first time for Hankerie to be invited honourbly as part of a food vendor in ASEAN Coffee & Art Fringe Event 2013 on 28-29th September 2013. Thanks to Karen, their marketing director for giving me golden opportunity. So glad that she likes my creativity on my bakes art, where my art combined together with all my bakes.



                    Right after my previous week event in Bangsar, I need to rush for this bigger event immediately. Tiring because I still need to work over the weekday, start my preparation only after my work hours. Indeed, that 2 continuous weeks are my most tiring period throughout my Hankerie's journey, everything paid off whenever seeing my bakes sold in just few hours! After this, I will definitely take a long break and go for a trip!



                    The crowd to this coffee event are mainly coffee lovers, cafe/restaurant owner, youngsters and family. Can you spot me in the photo below? I'm at middle left part of the picture below.

                    My best seller is Minion series. It attracted so many crowds to snap photo, including the newspaper reporter. My Minion swissroll and cupcakes are being published in Metro Online Broadcast 2 days after this events, which links from The Star Newspaper. A lot of people has courtesy to ask my permission whether they can take a photo of them, surprisingly.

                    I added on one new member into Minion family - Evil Minion.


                    Caught into my surprise to see my Minion cupcakes in the headlines of Metro Online Broadcast which directly linked from The Star Newspaper.


                    I'm really glad to invite one of my talented chef friend - Kayvin to assist me in this event to sell the hot food. He is so passionate about cooking, creative in creating his dishes and serve to the guest. Impressive plate presentation that he has done. Thumbs up!


                    3 unique sample hot food prepared by chef Kayvin. They are not only looks good, but also taste so delicious.



                    3 more additional product I've added on for these events, they are Hello Kitty fondant cupcakes with Japaense edition - black Kitty cat.


                    My own creation of expensive recipes - indulgence chocolate brownies with 3 different nuts. I called it expensive as all my ingredients are top quality ingredients. It really make a lot of difference when you have the first bites of these versus those buying from outside. This is the power of home bakes goods.


                    Another of my 100% proof biscotti recipe, you cannot run away of biscotti with coffee. The best mate ever when you enjoying a cup of hot coffee. It's crunchiness and dryness give coffee a perfect match. For those ladies who watch out their weight, good news that biscotti not contains any butter or any sort of fats :)


                    In average, all my bakes of the day totally sold out within 3-4 hours. Impressive but these are the bakes that I can do for maximum in a day. I hope that I can do more for not disappointing those kids. I still vividly remembered there are few of the kids kept came back to my Hankerie booth and asked "Do I still have Minion cupcakes or any bakes?" When the answer is "No more" to them, they looked so disappointed and sad. One of the kid not believing and asked his dad to came back again for asking twice. Overall, such an unique experiences in this event, learnt different things versus the event in Bangsar.


                    Again, thanks all who dropped by and supported us during this event :)

                                      Hankerie's bakes sell in Bangsar!


                                      Hankerie first time goes retail. This is my 1st experience to sell my bakes in public, the mixed feeling of exciting and worrying. Exciting to see the public response towards my artisan bakes, while worrying to see nobody will pay this amount of money to buy these bakes. The latter one proof it wrong after the first day of my Bangsar Shopping Complex event. All my bakes sold out in few hours, ended up I need to rush back home to bake everything for the next day sale.

                                      Well, I would like to share about all my preparation works before this 2 days event. It was like back to 1 month before, I started to do the planning, how to design my table, booth decoration, bakes menu and engaged some of my friends to help out with. In the end, I planned to sell my signature bakes - most of my designer series and organic pesto sauce.


                                      Self drawn black board art, spent about 2 hours to finish this design.


                                      This 2 days artisan market which held in Bangsar Shopping Complex (BSC) on 21st and 22nd September, it is also the last artisan event of the year of 2013. I was fortunate to be invited and joined as one of the food vendor, unfortunately my booth is joint with the craft vendor instead of other food vendors which located in Annex area. The crowd is lesser than the Annex area. In fact, it is really a bless to see most of the crowd towards my booth are really buying my home bakes goods. What a relieve!



                                      This will not be a success without my family support. Indeed, I really underestimate the effort from preparation, baking, washing, packing, transporting, selling and etc. This whole process is so exhausted, it wont be achieved just by myself. Really thanks to my husband, mum in law and brother in law who helped me from end to end.

                                       

                                      Now, let's see what I have baked for the sale. 1st is my signature Japanese Cream puff. Fresh out from oven. 

                                      Serve these treats with my home made custard, fresh cream and fresh fruits. All sold out in seconds.



                                      Next is my premium Belgium moist chocolate cupcake and healthy banana cupcake with walnut.


                                      All comes with my own packaging idea, 6 in one box, you can mix and match the flavour in a box.


                                      Of course, I wont left my Minion family out. Minion macarons, every single little kids so irresistible to grab them.


                                      Minion cupcakes!!! I only started to sell in my 2nd day of event, the response is unexpectedly overwhelmed.


                                      Limited edition of my designer swiss rolls, that's the maximum I can do for 1 day. Tough job.



                                      Last but not least is my home made pesto sauce, with my own idea of packaging. The material cost is expensive but worth to make them pretty and good for storage.


                                      Free of any preservative and colouring, my home grown basil gone just in one day. I need to wait for few more months to produce for next batch.


                                      To summarise this, it's really interesting and good exposure to see how public response to my bakes, happy to see return customer from 1st day, some even know my Hankerie's online presence and see the bakes sold out in few hours. All these encourage me to move on. Despite of the tiredness, I've more things to look forward and prepare for the following week event - 2013 Asean Coffee and Art event in Publika. It's really tough when you do this alone and on top of that still working full time job at the same time. I will share about Publika event in next post.

                                      Thanks to all of the support especially to those who dropped by :)
