Rocket's class Bakery is over, thankfully. I love the idea, what it teaches kids, and the beauty of it all, but making nine dozen baked goods is a royal pain and watching my labor go underpriced is a dagger in my tired heart.
It's the type of bake sale where a $1 can buy enough desserts to cover a small birthday party. This is Clover's loot on her second visit last week. No surprise, she got sick later that night.
Last week I made four dozen cupcakes, three dozen Rice Krispy treats, and two dozen Trix Krispy treats. I don't want to see another marshmallow for months.
A tip on the Trix Krispies - they are easy, colorful, and yummy, but I found they go stale pretty fast. Much sooner than the Rice Krispies do. By the next morning (what? I was just testing them), they'd lost a lot of crunch.
