First Bake Sale - Review

Our first bake sale was this afternoon. We made $276.45! Whoo hoo!

Not bad considering that it RAINED the entire time and we were only there for about 2 1/2 hours.

Tristan did a fabulous job setting up the sale. It looked amazing! We've learned that presentation is the key to a successful bake sale and we can't wait for our next one!

We want to give a big thank-you to everyone who made this bake sale a success:

The Rhys'
The Coopers
The Holts
The Wests
The Parkers (Melissa)
The Parkers (Kim)
The Blacks
The Goswicks
The Cross'

Also, a huge thank you goes to Brookshire's Grocery Store in Seven Points for letting us hold the bake sale. And, of course, we can't forget all of you who came out in the rain and supported us.

For those of you interested in holding a bake sale, we quickly discovered that sugar cookies on a stick are a big seller. (Thanks Shara!). Also, Dreama scored big time with her Dolly Madison 7 layer bars, Melissa's spiced pecans were scarfed up, and who knew that the Cedar Creek Community loved homemade blueberry scones. They were gone in less than an hour.

Here are some pictures from today's bake sale. I arrived late, so missed out on getting pictures of some of the teens who came out and helped.

Always have an adorable kid help sell your food. Abby was a hit with the customers. Honestly, who could resist such a face?

Cindy C. and Elijah- who just bought Dreama's 7 layer bars.

A nice couple we met who just moved here from Denton.
