What can I make for bake sale success?
A- The best thing to remember at a bake sale is to keep it simple but fun! The only thing to avoid is going to be something that needs refrigeration. If the bake sale is indoors or outdoors you will want to have everything displayed on your tables, not hidden away in the fridge. Here are a couple of my favorites that are inexpensive to make, are kid friendly and are sure to sell out! Cool Whip Cookies 1 box (18 1/4oz.) cake mix, whatever flavor you like 1 tub (8 oz.) Cool Whip 1 egg Mix all 3 ingredients and form into balls. Roll in powdered sugar and bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes. Let cool on pan for a few minutes before removing. These will spread a bit during baking and finish with a cool crackled look. Assort your flavors to get some nice color combinations! This one I can eat directly out of the pan, but I would recommend cutting it and selling it by the piece on plates or by the whole cake. Cinnamon Apple Cake 1 can Apple Pie filling 1 box Angel Food Cake mix Mix 2 ingredients together until thoroughly blended. Pour into a 9x13" sheet pan and bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes or until the top begins to brown. I hope these will give your bake sale a boost!
