Hello??? Have you given up on me? I sure hope not, but boy I have just not had time to buzz by for a visit or even hardly think of a post.
However, a wee bit of inspiration struck when I was packaging up some treats that Baby Bee and I conspired on to sell at her Winter Program bake sale for middle school band.
Seriously, I always think a little bit of pretty packaging always makes something look more appealing and shows how much you care.
Baby Bee baked some delicious Peppermint Chocolate Miniature Bundt Cakes – I think they might be called Bundt-lette cakes – and I just had to do my best to make them sell for top dollar.
I made some sweet little tags using digital scrapbook paper and a fun font.
Then, I put each cake in a little clear treat bag,
threw in some peppermint candies, and tied them up with baker's twine – red and white, of course.
And then I thought....how cute would it be to make these little cakes with different flavors, like maybe Kahlua or cinnamon and then toss in some coffee beans or cinnamon candies? Well....it's an idea, right? Is it a good one?
Would you buy these at a bake sale?
What would you pay? (Not sure what they ended up selling for.)
Well, the play has now closed - looking for pictures - I never had a chance to take any myself - to share with you.
And I can't wait to show you what my students made for Christmas gifts this year! They turned out so cute.
Thanks for still buzzing along with me! Only one more day of school and then it's Winter Break!!!! Can't wait!
