  • The trend right now is cake suckers. Basically cake and frosting in a ball, dipped in white chocolate and stuck on a stick. Trendy and yummy!!!

  • What is your "customer" base? That depends on a lot of what we sell. For older/adultish lol type, we do breads, cupcakes, cookies, brownies, mini cakes, cobblers, pies.... For the child based bake sales, we do chocolate covered pretzel rods, pretzel rods with chocolate covered marshmallows, then we roll them in crushed candies, or raisins, we do flavored popcorn, cookies in designs and shapes that are child favored....rice krispy treats, peanut butter rice krispy treats, chocolate and strawberry....the flavors go on and on...we also to krispy pops (rice krispy treats shaped into balls on a lollipop stick) . We've even done PB and J cookie sandwiches in different shapes and sizes. If you have a cooler and it's not to hot, Popsicles are a good seller too. Cupcakes baked in ice cream cones decorated to look like ice cream cones are great also....

  • Yeah, I've seen the cake pop things before... never tried them. Maybe will attempt.
    Our market would be some kids, but prob some younger, middle aged people.

  • The last 2 bakesales we had (school functions), I made lemon poppyseed coffeecakes - and they sold within 10 minutes. Also rocky road brownies, sold within half an hour. Whole pans for both of them - rounds for the coffeecakes, 8x11 for the brownies - used foil pans and left them in.

  • Cheesecake Cookies

    ½ cup cream cheese, soft
    ½ cup butter, soft
    1 cup sugar
    1 egg
    ¼ tsp salt
    ¼ tsp baking powder
    1 cup all purpose flour

    Preheat oven to 350F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
    In a large bowl, beat together butter and cream cheese. Gradually beat in sugar at medium speed until light and fluffy. Beat in egg and salt.
    Whisk together baking powder and flour in a small bowl and, mixing by hand or at low speed, add to cream cheese mixture.
    Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet.
    Bake at 350 for 12-14 minutes, until the bottom edge just barely turns brown.
    Makes about 3 dozen.
