Bake sales are about appealing to the mini masses, so you want to choose a winning recipe from the start. It should be something simple enough to make without a fuss, familiar-looking (don’t forget that most of your customers are kids) and presented with a little flair. Here’s our best advice for a sold-out sale.
What you’ll need:
- Get a platter or nice basket to display your goods. Both are universally available at every dollar store in town, so buy it there. (That way, if it never makes its way back to you, there’s no harm done.)
- Small cellophane bags with twist ties are a great way to display anything from bar cookies to small treats that might come two or three to a serving.
- Make a sign. Using big, clear letters, write out the name of your dish and, if possible, the main ingredients.
