My first ever Bake Sale

04 Jan

Mantam’s school diary had a message for parents that the school would be hosting a Diwali Mela. Interested parents could put up stalls. I proposed to sell my baked goodies. Abbas suggested that I better go for something else that would not strain me coz we I would be working that day. To add to it, we were to start our travel for Goa the very next morning at 3 AM. Abbas came up with the idea of having a Mehndi stall so that I didn’t have to stress myself preparing for it. I could simply walk in with a few Mehndi cones and be done with it. Me being me, known to stretch myself till the limit, decided to have a bake-cum-mehndi stall. I could put baked goodies for sale and simultaneously go about Mehndi art too! I agree it was too strenuous for me, but then I enjoyed it. Although the expected crowd didn’t turn up, the sale went quite well. I treasure those 610 bucks I made that day more than my salary. That money came out of something I really enjoyed doing. I envy those who have their hobbies to earn their bread and butter. Sooner or later, I hope to get there too…..

Posting few pics of the sale:

      Thanks S. I don’t think I’m a pro in that. Just that I’m recording achievements that are worth bragging about. I too have my set of slips and misses re. I guess I must start writing about them too πŸ˜€

      Too much enthu is hazardous too at times πŸ™‚ I realize only after I get too strained, but I don’t seem to learn from the experience. I enjoy the moment and forget about the consequences :-)… Abbas stays you are still young, so you will not understand now. You stretch yourself beyond limit and one fine morning, you will wake up as a Buddhi Amma (Old woman) πŸ˜€

      Different edible food colours are available. I divided the normal vanilla batter into 4 parts and mixed one colour in portion. I had only 4 colours on hand.
