From recruiting bakers to having everything packaged for sale to establishing a pricing system.. it’s all HERE – Click NOW!

The only thing I might add – is to plan your bake sale for a few days before a holiday – our Girl Scout troop always had success the weekend before Thanksgiving… but any time that people get-together they’ll think about needing a dessert!

Best of Luck to you and your group! -krisgo
