Bake Sale Packaging and Treat Ideas

So there are a lot of different ways to package cupcakes for bake sales, but sometime you need something tall to account for cute decorations you may want to add on.  Or maybe you need something that will stack a little easier than the small cups in bags.

One option is to use cups with lids turned upside down.  The cool thing about this is that there is a rim on the lid that ends up holding a cupcake in place pretty well.  Obviously, if you have really heavy icing or typically top heavy cupcakes, it still may not secure them for transportation as well, but it is a great way to keep them in place while handling.

You can find these cups from your typical bulk product store.

We have had really good luck at past bake sales with biscuits.  A four pack of biscuits on a plate with a little ketchup/sauce cup of jelly is a great, less sweet addition to a bake sale.  Plus, bake sales typically start early in the morning and biscuits are breakfast food!

As I have posted, there are a lot of things you can do with biscuits too, making garlic herb biscuits, maple bacon biscuits, or cinnamon raisin biscuits.  With the sweeter versions, a simple powdered sugar/milk glaze makes them much like a scone without all the hassle.

And really, don't we sometimes just wish that bake sales were a little more simple?

These Duck Dynasty rings also added some extra cuteness to these cupcakes.  I really don't care how old you are or how big your hands are, you are going to try to put one of those rings on.  And that is that.  We are all still kids at heart when a cupcake is involved!

Four and six pack cupcakes are also a fun way to offer variety packs for those of us out there that just want to sample one of each.  Bright colors and fun boxes can add some liveliness to your bake sale table as well.

Another really simple treat is chocolate dipped pretzel rods with toffee, coconut, or peanut butter chips sprinkled over them before the chocolate sets.  This same idea can be done with oreos too, although pretzels are extensively more cost effective.  Sweet and salty is a nice balance from the super sweet other treats. 

Happy crafting!
