Bake Sale Goodies
dre: I love to bake. This was not a natural phenomenon, but only a recent interest. The more I baked, the easier it got, and the more I liked doing it. I have learned that following directions is the key the successful baking!
The youth group at my church decided to have their annual bake sale to raise money for World Vision's 30 Hour Famine. This year, we made a lot more cupcakes. The teens had fun decorating the chocolate cupcakes with icing and Nutella and made some interesting, but colourful designs.
Of course, we had to make some cookies, so we made a lot of oatmeal chocolate chip and double chocolate chip cookies.
The next set of cupcakes didn't turn out quite as nice looking, as the blackberry cupcakes with crumble looked a little sad. The crumble didn't properly turn out. Fortunately, we advertised them as "healthier" cupcakes as there was fruit in them and it tasted a lot better than they looked.
The boys were in charge of rice Krispie squares. They had a really good idea of adding nutella to one of the batters and it proved worthy as the chocolate rice Krispie squares were a hit.
Finally, we ran out of muffin trays to bake, so instead I told them to make an Oreo cake instead of Oreo cupcakes. That turned out pretty delicious as well. They raised about $200 from all these baked goods.
I made some of my own creations for myself. I made some chocolate cupcakes as well as vanilla white chocolate cupcakes. The white chocolate taste wasn't very prominent, as I skimped out on the white chocolate squares.
I also had some apples and a pie crust in the freezer, so I decided to make an apple pie. I didn't have any brown sugar in my pantry, so that's why the pie looked a little crystalized in between the weaves, because I only used regular granulated sugar for the sauce.
Lastly, I recreated what the kids couldn't do - the Oreo cupcakes. The looked cute and are not too sweet. I shared these with my neighbours when they invited us over for dinner.
