the Halloween Bake Sale

Standard

Actually, these were for the Cake Walk… but bake sale, cake walk… same difference. It’s not a new thing to me, but I had fun with Elizabeth’s first school one. I wanted to see if I could make some fun looking things (and keep cost LOW)…

First: Made a fun tag & tie for this festive cake. It’s just funfetti cake + matching frosting. EASY.

Then with the other 1/2 we got silly. The stem + leaf are just cardstock glue-dotted onto the plastic wrap – in no way touching/bothering the cake.

Finally we went for minis. Brownie bites baked from a mix + candies + a fun tag.

The thing about baked goods for stuff like this is that IT IS OK to just go for quick & easy. Nobody is going to judge if you just use mixes and don’t bake up something original and from scratch. SOMETIMES QUICK AND EASY IS TOTALLY THE WAY TO GO!!!

On the tags and such primarily I used Girls’ Paperie Toil & Trouble line (which you can see more of in THIS article I wrote). LOVE Margie’s stuff – and this Halloween line is just so fun. I love adding a bit of crafty goodness to things – it just makes me smile.

Happy (holiday) crafting everyone!!!

  1. I’m luvin that embossed skeleton tag! I also love the banner. Back when my boys were young and I worked a lot of hours I would buy cookies at the grocery bakery, remove them from the package and put in zip loc bags so the boys would think I made them!
