With November creeping in, it’s time to start the baking for the Extravaganza. As always, we need a strong commitment from our members to have the tables full, as the baking is always a popular area. Remember that baking doesn’t always have to be cookies or squares. There are lots of fun sweet and non-sweet treats that can be made and we have a wealth of ideas on the internet now to turn to for ideas. The same goes for decorating and packaging. Here are a few links you might enjoy looking at.
Don’t be intimidated by what you see on Pinterest! We are not all Martha Stewarts and we have had our tables full of your good ideas in the past. Have fun with it!
The baking we do for our guests needs to be kept separately, so we know what goes where. It doesn’t need to be cut up if it is squares. Remember to put your name on any containers you want to have back, and pick these up at the end of the day Saturday.
A few important reminders:
It would be so helpful if you can price your own. We think you know best, but if you are stumped, we can help out. Make your prices to the dollar amount, no cents please.
Bring everything in on Thursday before the sale, between 10:00 and 2:00, if at all possible. Small boxes with your goods would be helpful, in case we are putting some out and leaving some under the tables.
Whatever you make should be freezable. Most has to last until Christmas.
All food to sell must have an ingredient list on each one. There should be no peanuts, no meringues, no custard fillings or toppings. If a health inspector comes in and sees meringue or custard products (risky for food poisoning) they could simply shut our sale right down!
On that harsh note, we wish you fun in the kitchen!
Thank you, from the baking team: Caroline, Kate and Eleanor
