You know that American donut chain slogan “American runs on Dunkin'”? , the Earl Haig Spring Festival runs on people power*. And baking. And hot dogs, popcorn and cotton candy. And jars. And creativity. But lots of baking.
There are two events in the Festival which cannot run without your flour and egg energy, the Bake Sale and the Cake Walk. The Cake Walk is a lot like Musical Chairs, but when the music stops instead of ending up in the last chair you end up with a fun cake to take home.You don’t need to be a beautiful Cake Boss baker to contribute. We need all cakes, those with sprinkles, those with smarties, those with gummies or just plain icing.
For the bake sale think of easy to eat in your hand items – cookies, cupcakes, brownies, lemon squares, date squares, macaroons, macarons for the fancy baker. We’re a school that contributed 1000 cupcakes in February for the Valentine’s Bake Sale. Can you really ever have too many cupcakes?
All baked items need to be nut free, and can be dropped off in the Office on the day of the Spring Festival. Which is this Thursday June 2 from 3:30 – 7:00!! See you all there!
*People power cannot be adequately described or appreciated. Thank you to all the volunteers involved in the Spring Festival, whether you have been meeting since February to plan, donate an hour of your time to staff a booth or table, accept bbq and freezie duty, turn on your oven in this heat to bake, or otherwise donate any of the items the Festival relies on each year as the primary fundraiser for the School Council. Thank you thank you thank you.
