AI'm going to try to make short. I injured myself and have an open compound fracture to my left ankle. Needless to say, I am unable to do anything for myself. I have had several people come to my house to help me do things. So I was thinking about baking and decorating some cupcakes and delivering them in a cute box with a special thank you note. Along with some cheesy line about caring for me seeing as I'll be out of commission for at least another 5 weeks. I had planned on making a couple different flavors and fillings. These would be cupcakes I would normally charge $5-$6. Does anyone think this is appropriate thank you gift?

Sounds like a lovely way to say thankyou - especially if you are able to personalise them for each person.

Agreed! So sorry to hear about your injury, that's wonderful that you have people willing to help you. Who doesn't love sweets?! And personalizing them is a nice added touch, definitely beats a thank you card!

AI think it is a thoughtful gift, but I have to ask how it happened! That sort of injury is one of my worst fears, and sounds so painful! I have only broken my wrist, but the bone went into my hand, and I could see a sharp point under my skin.... Whew, but it was still under the skin! And I suppose we'll be seeing a lot of you on here for the next few weeks ;-)

If it was I, I would be delighted to get that gift!

 

I hope you get better soon!

Great, I appreciate all of your input.  I didn't want to just send a thank you card, it's lame and I don't know a single person who keeps them.  I figured since I am out of commission for about 5 more weeks, I could make cupcakes and decorate them, use pretty liners, make them look very unique for each person.  Thankfully, I can do that sitting down. lol.  I just wanted to make sure this gift wasn't seen as a cheesy gift since they all know I bake.

Long story short, my foot fell in a gopher hole and twisted (I'll leave out the gory details). I am a skydiver and after a great jump and good landing I was carrying my gear and noticed part of my parachute was dragging on the ground so I leaned over to pick it up and my foot slipped in heel first then twisted because of how my body was positioned. I could not see the stupid hole. icon_cry.gif  So yes, you will be seeing me quite a bit, and I apologize in advance for any posts that do not make sense, I am on pretty strong medications until I have the external fixator removed August 15.

I'm sorry to hear about your injury! I think your gift idea is very thoughtful. Anyone can send a card. Something made with love especially for them is much more special.

thelittlecakery Posted 18 Jul 2013 , 2:22pm

Thank you all for your well wishes. It's only been a week and a half, and I am going stir crazy!

Annabakescakes Posted 18 Jul 2013 , 2:33pm

AI can't even imagine jumping out of a plane, landing alright, then breaking my ankle in a gopher hole...how ironic.

Annabakescakes Posted 18 Jul 2013 , 2:34pm

Aoh, i am so lazy that i would hate the pain, but relish not having to move for 6 weeks ;-D

JWinslow Posted 19 Jul 2013 , 4:03pm

So Sorry this happen to you.  I personally would love this type of gift.  I agree with Elcee - anyone can send a card but your personal touch makes it special.

jennicake Posted 19 Jul 2013 , 5:06pm

I agree with the other comments, I would love to receive that kind of gift.  Very thoughtful!

sarahbakestudio Posted 19 Jul 2013 , 5:13pm

As is the status quo, I think that would be a wonderful and personal thank you gift! :)

I think that it is so cool that you sky dive. That's on the bucket list I have for if I'm diagnosed with a terminal disease or if I make it to the age of 70 : ) Any ways back to the original topic Baked goods are great way to say thank you and hope that you make a full recovery.
