Because this is the time of year for bake sales, I also want to share some from Bake Sale Tips and printables from Taste of Home.

Tips for a Successful Bake Sale
By Taste of Home (website)
  • Work with local businesses to receive donated baked goods, talk to schools and community centers to borrow tables and chairs and rally your neighbors to help you bake and sell.
  • Make your bake sale healthy by incorporating low-fat baked goods, whole wheat flour, butter substitutes and desserts with fresh fruit.
  • Decorate your table and consider creating a theme—play off of a holiday or community event.
  • Promote your bake sale by putting up flyers around your community, adding the event to your organization's Web site, sending an email to friends, adding it to your Facebook page, Tweeting about it and adding it to your newsletter.
  • Use decorative paper, plastic wrap, foil, ribbons and stickers to creatively package your baked goods.
  • After your bake sale, send thank you letters to those who donated resources or time.
  • Have some gluten-free and nut-free treats available for sale for people with allergies.
  • Let your customers know where you are going to donate the money raised by your sale. They might be inclined to buy more goodies

Here are some printable Bake Sale Tags and Recipe Cards.
