Pampered Chef: Baked good to sell at church fundraiser

    Our church is having a Memorial Day picnic and they'll be having a silent auction to benefit our Cub Scouts. They had passed around a sign-up for people to put down what they have to donate and I put down that I'd make a baked good and also donate a Season's Best cookbook. I was thinking of making the PB Cup Torte, but I'm not sure how to give it...I don't have a disposable cake taker. Do they sell that at the grocery stores? Maybe I should make something else? I wanted to make an impressive dessert, but I also want it to be easy and not expensive. Any ideas?

    These are my 2 most requested desserts (they aren't PC)
    I made a batch of each, every Thursday night of football season for 2 years for the Fellowship dinner for the boys and then once a month made them for the coaches and each friday of track season

    both are inexpensive to make but very impressive. You could put them on a platter from the dollar store

    Those recipes sound great! Thanks for sharing them.

    I think I'm going to see if there is something at the store. DH said to just buy a cheap plate if there isn't a disposable one. I guess I'll just use toothpicks and saran wrap to cover it?

    DH also thought I should make 2 of them. One for the dessert (it's a potluck picnic and we have to bring one side dish & one dessert) and one to donate...hoping that people will love it so much that they will bid on the one for sale. :D

    Dollar tree has some great plates. They even had some with dots on them.
Have something to add?
