Most of my life I've been into baking and cooking and as of a few years ago I started to get into D&D with my friends. I loved how free the game was and spending time with my fellow nerds. But there was one thing I didn't like;
A bad roll
We all have our little methods for dealing with a bad dice; putting them away until they play nice, threatening to microwave them or maybe some good old fashioned dice shaming.
I wanted to eat mine.
And that led to the idea of Sweet Rolls, Dice you could eat if they pissed you off (Or maybe as a good gift for your nerdy friends and family). A lot of people have already expressed interest to me in buying the product so i am confident there is a market for it once I start up.
I set out looking into what i would need and how it would all come together. Friends seemed excited by the idea and encouraged me. However starting a business isn't cheap and that is why I wanted to kickstart it. As well as hopefully get myself out there a bit before opening shop.
With the rise of things like Critical Role and The Adventure Zone I thought maybe their might be people out there who would want to support me in my endeavour.
After the initial testing and refinement of the product I intend to open an Etsy where they will be available to be bought. During this first phase (which I hope will last no more than a month) I will work on the actual recipe for the sweets as well as the moulds i will be making for the shop out of food grade silicone.
I intend for them to be made from a hard candy similar to lemon sherbets or pear drops (stable for shipping in warm temperatures) and sold in sets of 7 with a D4,D6,D8,D10,D10,D12 and D20 as is in a standard D&D dice set. Flavours and colours are currently not set in stone but i intend to create a similar marbling and glitter patterns found in actual acrylic dice. They will be packaged as a set of 7 but coated in icing sugar to prevent sticking together and damage. They'll also be shipped in padded envelopes to protect them during transport.
When I am happy with the product and think it is sell-able I will ship out any bonuses from this kickstarter and then open for business.
Risks and challenges
I am intending to start this project over summer however as a student my location and time availability isn't very consistent at times. However I am comfortable in being able to manage this project around my studies but things make take a little more time every now and then so please be patient.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
