    Are you trying to demo two recipes at a show?

    I've found shows get too long if you try to do 2 recipes. People lose intrest. I think it is best to have one done ahead if the host wants more food for her guests.

    or you could do interactive and have the guests finish the recipes for each. Like do the pizza halfway and the pastries halfway and have them finish them? Also about the pastries I think the only time you heat them is for the puff pastries to rise? If that is the case then yes you can use the flat stone.

    The strawberry pastries are good...but kind of a pain to demo at a show. I would suggest against it.

    Focus on demo'ing recipes that families will actually make in their households to save time and money. That's what the majority of people need these days.

    I love making the Strawberry pastries for my family. I keep the pastries in a ziplock bag, the whip topping mix in the Large Batterbowl in the fridge with the lid on, and the Sliced Strawberrys also in the fridge. When ever we want a pastry it is easy to assemble one or a couple. I think you could also do this at your show if you have more than one demo. Just shortly explain the easy steps you did to make the pastries and whip mix and have the guest use the bread knife and spreader to make their own pastries.

    Good thought! I didn't know the puff pastries would stay "good" for a while in the fridge :) My husband will be happy now that it is easy to prepare and store for when we want to make one to eat. The pastries are AWESOME! I just didn't like dealing w/ the pastry at the show. JMO ;)
