My kindergartener brought home a note asking for baked goods for a bake sale and I need some ideas. The note also made no mention of how much they want each child to bring.
They are going to be having the sale during P/T conferences. Smart since the school is going to be overflowing with tired, hungry teachers who have to stay 4 hours late two days in a row.
Give me some ideas please.
I do plan on talking to the teacher about how much is wanted but knowing the teachers around here they won't give a real answer because they're pathetically grateful for whatever parents do send.
My bake sale experiences taught me that teachers are cake in one hand, coffee in the other hand kind of people. Cupcakes and doughnuts are what I would send.
The parents will buy cookies to take home, and some will buy a whole small cake for dessert that night.
If there's going to be a meeting, maybe some fruit/nut muffins to energize them....or some scones, they'll probably have coffee to go with them.
biscottis!! yummy, dunked in their coffee! If you want something savory I could give you ideas for that too.
Brownies. With nuts and without. Easy to individually portion and wrap, not to mention they're CHOCOLATE! I have also done rice krispy treats--make a double batch but put it in the same size pan for thicker treats. Drizzle tops with melted white chocolate & add non-pareils. Great seller!
I sent cake truffles and they flew off the tables at the last bake sale. Bite sized, easy to handle.
