Baking is one of the things you do during the holidays.
So here’ s some tips you can use to organize your baking work for the holidays!
List holiday baked goods to make and give. Estimate number of baked items needed for the season.
it’s good to have a list on what you want to bake and who you want to give it to so you can do a rough estimate and not over do it.
Review recipes and research new ones.
Not unless you know recipes it’s still good to learn new baking techniques and recipes to provide options.
Use a baking planner form to list each recipe or item, ingredients needed and number of batches.
Using a planner can help you organize your thought as well as the volume of your baked goodies.
Check food storage or pantry for ingredients. Start a shopping list for needed items.
Spend good ‘ol 30 mins to check if you have the needed ingredients for your baked goodies. If there are missing ingredients create a shoping list.
Purchase baking staples during the pre-Thanksgiving supermarket sales.
Sales are the best simply because you save a lot of money from buying your ingredients and supplies at a regular price!
Schedule baking sessions on the holiday calendar.
This will remind you how much time you have to bake all of those goodies.
Bake, bake, bake! Store completed items in the freezer where appropriate.
Bake away and remember to store them in a freezer that dry up or melt the cake!
Wrap baked goods for giving, or assemble cookie trays.
Wrap the googies so as to provide presentation for your guests.
