Hello Dear Reader,
I am feeling totally chuffed with myself! A couple of nights baking and I have a considerable donations without any great costs to myself. I gave my time willingly and resisted any desires to eat most of the cakes and cookies myself! I made a dozen lemon drizzle cup cakes which are just the most unctuous and decadent things that I could eat one right now if I hadn't packaged them up to donate.
I took my life in my hands today and got in amongst the shoppers in Poundland! My goodness it was busy! I couldn't find the end of the queue and thought it was the start of a conga competition! I found the loveliest food wrapping bags which are just big enough for a few cookies or just a couple of cakes. They were £1 for 20 with little red ribbons. I also found 30 glitzy gold labels for £1 and 100 sticky labels for £1. It is extremely good value and just right for gift wrap.
I made a dozen coffee and walnut cupcakes and dusted them with icing sugar. No massive cost but they are lovely. I shall buy two back for DB!
Here is my final donation and it's off to a good cause. If anyone knows of any other fund raising events near to me that need some cakes, leave me a comment and let me know and I'll be glad to donate some there too!
Over to you Dear Reader, are any of you fund raising at this charitable time of year. What are you up to? Are you baking or crafting for the church bazaar or play group Christmas Fayre? Let me know as I love hearing about what you are up to.
Tomorrow, I have a review of something that would make a great present at a lowish cost and I will be getting ready for a weekend of sewing for beginners.
Love Froogs xxxx
