The Art of Packaging Baked Goods

They say that you taste with your eyes, so it stands to figure that the prettier an item is, the better it will sell at a bake sale. Packaging your goodies in an attractive way not only helps get them off the table as quickly as possible, it helps generate larger donations from bake sale patrons.

Flourless Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies

Large fragile treats, like frosted cupcakes or whole pies should be boxed up. Looks for bakers’ boxes at your local bake supply shop. Boxes with clear windows are perfect for bake sales because they let buyers get a sneak peek at your beautiful baked goods.

Small items do best when sold in batches. Try packing up cookies, cake balls, or granola bars by the half-dozen or bakers’ dozen. Plain looking items, like loaves of banana bread or batches of granola can be dolled up by colorful wrappings and bags. Try embellishing your goodies with pretty tags, labels, ribbons and bakers’ twine.

Labeling your goodies properly is really important for a few reasons. First off, people want to know what they are buying, so adding a descriptive title to your treats can help entice sales. Food allergies and special diets are also an important thing to consider. If your recipe includes a common allergen, like peanuts, consider adding a note on your label letting folks know.

If you’ve made a recipe that friendly to a certain diet or allergy, that’s a great selling point. Be sure to mention if your donation is gluten-free, dairy free, nut-free, low-sugar, vegan, paleo, etc.

No-Bake? No-Problem: Five Ways Non-Bakers Can Help

So maybe you love the idea of Austin Bakes, but you aren’t super confident in the kitchen. Fret not, non-bakers, there is still so much that you can do to help. In addition to bakers, Austin Bakes needs volunteers to help out at sale sites, and donations of supplies and necessary equipment, and help promoting the event.

Here are a few ways that you can help without ever touching an oven.

Volunteers at our seven bake sale sites raised over $10,000 for the Central Texas Wildfire Fund during Austin Bakes for Bastrop.

Volunteers at our seven bake sale sites raised over $10,000 for the Central Texas Wildfire Fund during Austin Bakes for Bastrop.

Volunteer at a Bake Sale Site
Our goal is to have several volunteers at every sale site. These folks will collect donations, assist customers, and help set up and break down tables, chairs, and tents. We still need plenty of help in this department, particularly at our Central and East locations. (Foreign & Domestic and Sugar Circus Bakery.)

Make Signs
Drawing attention to the sale is no small task. We could really use some big, eye-catching signs to help promote the sale, and to drive traffic toward the sites. Homemade and DIY signs are just fine, so if you have some free time and some extra poster-board, do us a solid and whip up a sign or two.

These gorgeous signs were donated for our very first sale, Austin Bakes for Japan.

Donate Supplies
You might be surprised to find out that bake sales require quite a few supplies to run smoothly. We need red plastic tablecloths, bottled water for volunteers, blank labels, pens,  tapes, scissors and cardstock for making small signs for the tables. Big pickle jars and coffee cans are also very handy (for collecting donations).

Lend Props and Equipment
Do you have a folding table, folding chair, or pop-up tent that we could borrow for the sale? These large items are sometimes hard to acquire, so lending one out for the day would be a huge help. We could also use props to dress up the tables. Items like cake stands, fancy baskets, and decorative trays will help us sell more goodies.

We need supplies, props, tables, and tents to make Austin Bakes for Austin a success.

Spread the Word
The easiest thing that you can do to help is to share the sale with your community. Invite your friends to our Facebook event. Share our site on Twitter, Facebook, and G+. Write a blog post. Call or write to your favorite Austin news or radio channel and ask them to talk about Austin Bakes. Print some flyers and share them with your family and co-workers. We need all the help we can get, and we can never have too many customers on the big day.

A Quick Guide to Baking for Austin Bakes

Need a little help choosing what to bake for the big day? There are a few things to keep in mind while you make your decision. Here are some tips to help you make the most out of your bake sale contribution.

Austin Bakes for Austin - November 30 - Citywide Charity Bake Sale for Flood Victims

Choosing a Recipe
Try to choose a sturdy recipe, something that will do well without refrigeration. Things like cookies, muffins, and biscuits tend to do well, but items with fragile bits, like cream cheese frosting, custard, and whipped cream aren’t ideal.

Batches of cookies are a classic choice, and always popular, as are muffins, scones, cake balls, and granola bars. Larger items, like whole pies, loaves of bread, and spice cakes are real show stoppers too. If you’d like to do something a little more outside the box, consider homemade jams, preserves, granola, or doggy biscuits.

Austin Bakes for Austin - November 30 - Citywide Charity Bake Sale for Flood Victims

Packaging Your Goodies
According to Austin health codes, bake sale items need to be wrapped and packaged before arriving at the sale. You can use things like cellophane bags, paper gift boxes, or plastic wrap to package your items.

Keep in mind that the prettier they look, the quicker they will sell, and the more cash they will bring in. We recommend packaging small items, like cookies, truffles, or muffins in packs of six or twelve, as batches of goodies tend to sell better than individual items.

Austin Bakes for Austin - November 30 - Citywide Charity Bake Sale for Flood Victims

Labeling Your Treats
It’s super important that all bake sale items are properly labeled. This not only makes them more appealing to buyers, but it can help protect folks with food allergies or special diets. We recommend adding a big fat label to each of your items featuring a descriptive name for your baked good. If your goodies are vegan, dairy free, nut free, gluten free, or paleo-friendly, be sure to label them as such. If you have a blog, a twitter handle, or a web site, go ahead and add that to the label as well.

Delivery Time
Try to drop off your donated treats to the sale location as early as possible. This helps give organizers the best chance to move as many goodies as possible. Be sure to drop off your donation in a container that doesn’t need to be returned. It’s all too easy to lose track of tupperware in the excitement of a city-wide sale.

Announcing Austin Bakes for Austin!

Get your mixers ready! We’re going to be coming together again, this time to help our Austin neighbors affected by the recent floods. Recent flooding has devastated several neighborhoods in Austin, leaving many of our fellow Austinites homeless.

Recovering these homes and neighborhoods is a huge job. Tons of debris must be removed, homes must be cleaned, gutted and renovated, and in some cases replaced all together. It’s a big job, one that will take a massive cooperative effort to accomplish.

We’re going to be raising funds for Austin Disaster Relief Network, a local organization that has been organizing volunteers, providing financial support, and collecting donations for those affected by the floods. More than 450 families have turned to Austin Disaster Relief Network for help.

The bake sale will be taking place on Saturday, November 30, from 10 am to 2 pm at multiple locations across Austin. We’ll be announcing specific locations soon. As always, we’ll need help from local Austinites to make this happen.
