Last Saturday my son had his annual school fundraiser, a huge pancake breakfast.  I was in charge of the basket auction— I will write more about this and share some photos later. Another part of the fundraiser is a bake sale. There were some clever ideas that I had to share with you!  I also think it would be great to have a “Bake Sale” Flickr group to give us all inspiration when we are called on to bring special goodies.  Please upload photos of fun creations and packaging ideas!  Often these treats make great holiday gifts!  So come on every on everyone—-inspire us.

okay, that was my post and then I went to upload the pictures —-my folder is EMPTY. I am sick! I have no basket pictures, no bake sale pictures! OH MY!

So today I have to leave you with what I made for my daughter’s Bake Sale last year!  These are so easy to make.  You will find the instructions here.

I stuck them into a cauldron

Stay tuned, today is my daughter’s bake sale and I will have more pictures for you!! (I hope)

Please go add some photos to the Bake Sale Flickr group
