This has become my existence for the last few days …
That is not a complaint by any stretch of the imagination.
How could I complain when I get to spend all day making these…
Yes, my own hand cut freshly baked goldfish and cheez-it crackers.
What could ever make me upset about slowly watching this batter drip into a mason jar…
And who can guess on a scale of 1-10 how badly I wanted to lick this entire jar (s) clean?
(… 12 actually).
Aren’t they so cute?
Although sugar and butter is all I have thought about this week, that is such a blissful thing. I never really sat down and considered just how much time and money it would take to throw together such a thing as a completely homemade bake sale (it’s a lot of time and money)… But regardless I am having a blast.
Planning is the most important.
I made enough cookie dough to sink a small boat yesterday…
And listened to Chef Mama’s suggestion to store it in aluminum pans until I am ready to bake it off. Thank you Chuck for this idea too…
And I also baked up some beautifully delicious Morning Glory muffins a little ahead of schedule.
I hate the fact that I had to freeze them right away – but 8 minutes at 325 Saturday morning should bring them back to just as good as new. There is no way I will be able to bake everything that morning.
Tomorrow is going to be the real crunch.
6 am alarm. 4 batches of cinnamon buns.
A couple containers of cupcake icing… not to mention lots of cupcakes and who knows how many cookies…
Oh, and a photo shoot!
For all the lucky ones following me on Instagram (@FabulousFoodie) stay tune tomorrow for all the updates on what’s going in and out of the oven.

Good Night my darlings.
Here’s to the sweeeeeeetest of dreams.
