We donated some of our pops to a church fundraiser last month. Started out as part of a Silent Auction, but then they decided to do a Live Auction instead -- featuring our goodies! Here's what we had made for the event:
We packaged them into sets so that the winner of the Silent Auction could give them away as gifts if they wanted to (who's going to eat that many cake pops alone.... besides me, ha ha!).
This is a shot of one of the guests perusing our pops. It's from is the beginning of the event, when we were still part of the Silent Auction. We already we had a bid of $50. :)
Then they decided to have a Live Auction using only our cake pops! Turned out the individual little gift sets made them perfect for that, and it was fun watching people trying to outbid each other!
This fun gift set with three pops in an ice cream glass fetched a winning bid of $20. These are vanilla pops -- my son tells me they taste like those pink & white circus animal cookies by Mother's Cookies. Cool!
This pail containing three bonneted babies raised $17. They are Cafe Mocha cakes, making these pops perfect for the new mom and dad who need a little caffeine to help them through the first few sleepless nights!
These are the babies when we let them out to play before the packaging session.
We packaged these on a sugared tray with a couple of fun stickless cupcake pops. Chocolate Dream cake inside and Cookies 'n Cream sprinkles outside. Elegant and delicious!
This gift set brought a winning bid of $20 from a very happy trio of young girls. The cupcakes are Lemon Splash.
Even the gift certificates for one dozen round cake pops were auctioned off separately. They went for $26 each, and we had four in the mix.
And of course, we made some Teapot pops. It was a Women's Tea, after all. :) These were fun to have as part of the table settings at one of the tables.
We had a great time with the all the guests. We were pleased that our pops raised a total of over $200 for the church of St. Timothy. All-in-all, it was a great day with some wonderful people for a really good cause. Let's do it again next year!
