Alright, I can't decide how I want to do this tomorrow. I'm making the Taco Ring and The Profiterole Puffs at my show tomorrow. The guests at this show are repeat guests, many times over. They all, except for one or two, have been to quite a few of my shows. .

I don't know if I should make the Profiterole Puffs from the start at my show. This is what I thought I might do. After introductions I would make the puffs and put them into the Mini Muffin Pan. Then put that into the oven. (I want to show how fast and easy this part is to do and to promote the cookware.) Then while the puffs are in the oven I would assemble the taco ring. I will have the meat filling prepared ahead of time. Once that is ready I can start preparing the filing for the puffs. When the puffs are done cooking I could put the ring in. Then poke the puffs, and then fill them.

Do you think that would be too long of a show? A lot of people from this group like all of the quick tips I give during a show. That's why I was thinking to do the puffs from the start.

What is your opinion? Has anyone made the Profiterole Puffs from the start at their shows, and how did it go?

Thanks in advance.

Maybe since it is a veteran crowd you could have them do hands on, maybe a cookoff or something?

I would have the veterans do hands-on like jdavis said. I did do these at the start of the show and I don't know what I did wrong. I have made these at home 4 times and they came out fine. When I did it at the show, they seemed more watery?? The only thing that I've come up with is that I ALWAYS measure with my measure-all-cup and this time I used the Easy Read. It also seemed like the group thought that they were cool but not too mind blowing? They were definitely ready to eat them though!;) :p

Definitely get your guests involved. I do it all the times and it makes my shows fun & I think increases the sales. They love it!

Well I think it went pretty good today. Only a couple of people wanted to get involved with making anything. But I expected that with this crowd. I think for my show tomorrow which I'm making the same thing I will make the puffs at home. I didn't like that I didn't have much time for letting them cool. They still turned out alright and everyone loved them. And I might even have my second sets of 5 & 7 piece Executive Cookware sold. We will see!:eek:
