Maybe your husband and kids don't mind what your cookies and cakes look like as they devour your delicious goodies, but your diva friends have probably come to expect more!
Don't get me wrong, your keepsake Aunt Martha pound cake recipe is heaven sent, but your Aunt Marth pound cake wrapped in pink polka dot cello paper with a hot pink raffia bow is fabulous!
Over the years, I found a lot of ways to "wrap" my baked goods. For starters, I like the gourmet boxes at Nashville Wraps. They have hundreds of styles and colors to choose from and are relatively inexpensive if you buy in bulk. I also like the selection of raffia they sell, typically you can get 100 yards for $3.50!
My favorite thing to do is add a personal label to my goodies. I usually put something like "Baked with love!" or "From the Diva's Kitchen". Or if it's the holidays, I might put a seasons greeting on their as well.
Polka dots, swirls, bold or tranquil, I like to package up my baked goods to reflect the goodies inside!
