I like to bake, I am not one to complain about any activity that results in a cake, cookie, brownie or pie, lol! So last year when it came time to make something for my daughter’s bake sale I thought I had it in the bag. In. the. bag. Yeeaaaaaaaah. Not so much. My scratch made cupcakes apparently didn’t look exciting enough to even make it to the official table! They never even got a chance, man….but I learned my lesson. Plain ole vanilla cupcakes don’t have the sparkling good looks it takes to compete and I want to make it to that table! Here are some recipes I am considering this time around because they are designed to wow. What do you bake for your kids school bake sales? Will you send me the recipe….please?!
The cookies pictured above are just to darling for words and you could easily change the toppings to reflect the season or change the cookie dough to chocolate chip, why not? I would use it as a starting point for cookie on a stick awesome-ness.
So I think that’s a good start, and something for every level of experience, but also something for every mood, too…or at least every mood I have!
And please, feel free to share what you have made for your kids bake sales, I really really do want to know!
