Baby Bee's dance group recently had a fundraising dinner and silent auction. One thing that seems to always sell well are homemade baked goods. So Saturday afternoon (before the auction) the Baking Stadium at Sweet Bee Cottage got busy!
Within three hours my baking assistants (Worker Bee & Baby Bee) and I whipped up three yumptious baked treats for bidding.
We made Peanut Butter Brownies (a family favorite),
Orange-Pistachio Biscotti (my mom bid on these because she says I never give her any - I'll have to remedy that - or maybe I should keep her wanting more so she'll bid them up again next year),
and Buttermilk Devil's Food Cupcakes with Dark Chocolate Buttercream Frosting!
I always try to make the package attractive too for these events.
I started off with some pretty plastic trays from Dollar Tree (the ones that look like old-fashioned pressed glass, but they're really plastic)and a paper doily (also from Dollar Tree).
Then I googled images of the items I baked (mine were still baking during this time so I couldn't photograph my own), added the item name with a cute font, and printed them out. I cut a little slit on either side of the label, slid a ribbon through, and tied it off. They sold for over $50, so I must have done pretty well!
And....speaking of bake sales -
are you aware of the Great American Bake Sale?
Sewing Bee, Baby Bee, and I have formed a team for this event. I hope to add some more team members too! I'll keep you posted on how it comes along.
You can join too by going here!
All proceeds from this event will go to help end childhood hunger.
Do you have any tips or recipes to share?
Thanks for buzzing by!
