The Best Bake Sale Ever Cookbook

Domestic, Reviews
I’ve been baking for bake sales since my first wee one’s play group seven years ago, and in that time I’ve had some winners and some some losers and I still use some of the trusty recipes from my Good Housekeeping Cook Book! When I came across this book though, and started flipping through it, I knew it’d be a winner and it is.

I honestly love a cookbook that takes cooking or baking seriously, how else can you get to the serious business of making it taste/look divine, right?

Outlining what makes a bake sale recipe exactly what it needs to be, (presentation, portability and portions – naturally), options abound! Cookies, bars / brownies, breads / coffee cakes, cupcakes / rolls / muffins, cakes and pies!

The thumbprint cookies were a hit when I made them for the kid’s school bake sale, and I tried the blueberry pie, pumpkin pie and cherry pies during Pie Year! All recipes were easy to follow and none had any errors.

The very last chapter is called Something Extra, with fun, never fail bake sale standards like popcorn balls, candied / chocolate covered / apples and trail mix. Plus other fun ideas like English toffee packaged in small portions, homemade marshmallows and marshmallow fudge!
