Have you got a bakery, but are struggling to figure out which items to sell apart from big ticket and time-consuming items? A useful tip is to try and adapt and provide your customers with what they desire to bring in more revenue and be successful. To do so, you have to think what you can offer them besides just cakes. Not every customer that comes through the doors wants to buy a cake or cupcakes, and you could be losing out on a lot of business if you do not accommodate more of the items that customers are after. Therefore, instead of just sticking to cakes, there are a few other items that people love and that usually sells out each day. We have compiled a list of popular baked goods that you can start selling in your bakery to become more successful and bring in more revenue. Your customers will be thanking you. 

  1. Chocolate Chip Cookie Sandwiches

This item is often the number one selling item in a bakery. It is basically two soft baked cookies with a layer of buttercream sandwiched in between. They tend to be so popular that some people call to reserve some before they are all sold out. You can even change things up by making your cookies with different flavors. One thing is for sure though, chocolate chip cookies remain a hit with sugar cookies following shortly behind. 

  1. Gourmet Brownies

Very few people can resist the crusty outside and soft chocolaty inside of a well baked chocolate brownie. You can also switch up the flavors and wrap them in cupcake wrappers for easy-going packaging. The Turtle brownies tend to sell well and are not often left on the shelf. 

  1. Mini Cheesecakes

Cheesecakes are a classic favorite and cupcake size cheesecakes usually competes for first place with cookies sandwiches. A great flavor variety to try is Vanilla bean flavor with some whipped cream. Irrespective of the flavoring, these cupcakes usually sell out quickly. 

  1. Chocolate Dipped Strawberries

These items are often only available in season, but they remain an old favorite. An excellent way of boosting more sales is to offer pre-orders before Valentines. Nothing suggests romance better than chocolate and strawberries. Check out café Maroochydore for a range of delectable baked goods.
