Bake Sale!

Last year we had our inaugural bake sale fundraiser, and it was absolute success.  It’s time again to turn bread into bread! 

There are TWO dates for this event: the drop-off day, and the sale itself.  If you are interested in participating, the drop-off day is the important day for you! That’s: Saturday, October 5.

How it works:  The drop-off is at Minion Erika’s House, 22111 Edmunton, SCS mi 48080, from 12pm-4pm.  You bring your contribution to the drop-off, and leadership will take it to the bake sale.  Easy peasy!

What Should I Bake?  Good ideas are:

  • Family size desserts, such as whole cakes, pies, tarts, cobblers, etc
  • Big fat cookies, brownies, lemon and pecan squares, other sorts of traybakes, etc
  • Breakfast pastries like scones, whole coffeecakes, pans of cinnamon rolls, etc.
  • Breads: whole loaves, bags of rolls, quickbreads like pumpkin, banana, etc
  • Your grandma’s super special something!

What’s not so good an idea?

  • Teeny tiny individual things (unless they’re bundled together in a package.)
  • Anything that needs refrigeration.
  • Cupcakes, rice crispy treats, muffins, cake pops (they just don’t sell for some reason)
  • Anything store bought.

Things to Remember

  • Include a label or note with your offering of what it’s called.
  • Cut traybakes like brownies into large squares (like the size of a nano sticker!) rather than tiny squares.
  • You need to bring your offering in/on something, and you won’t get that dish back, so don’t bring your favorite baking pan.  Cake circles and disposable paper baking pans are available where baking supplies are sold, or a dollar store plastic plate can look very nice.

I want to help, but I can’t bake!

That’s okay!  Maybe someone can help you!  Do you have a mom or granny who’s the baker in the family?  A brother who went through culinary school you can trade some computer repair for help?  A friend or fellow Wrimo that brings the BEST stuff to potlucks?  Maybe you can buy the ingredients and learn a valuable skill in the process.

No, seriously, I will poison someone.  There will probably be fire.

If you really want to help out, you can bring cash money to the drop zone instead of a baked good.  We will be getting some ribbons and packaging and printing thank you notes and info cards, and a little cash will help cover those things.

Can I come to the bake sale?

Sure!  The address for the church is: 20475 Sunningdale Park, Grosse Pointe Woods, MI 48236.  The sale will be from 9am-1pm on Sunday (the day after the drop-off.)  We just have to be sure to be courteous to the parishioners and not disrupt their space.  NOTE:  If there is an emergency at the church, we will be postponed until the following Sunday, and we will make an announcement.
