Young girls love to bake

The Compass - - NEWS - FROM A8

This was a fam­ily ef­fort for the mother and daugh­ter teams, but Re­nee and Chris­tine didn’t take any credit.

“They planned it,” Chris­tine ex­plained. “Yes we helped, but it was them from the be­gin­ning.”

The ven­ture, which they named C & E De­lights, was also aided by the girls’ grand­moth­ers, who vol­un­teered with­out be­ing asked. In fact, many peo­ple from around the com­mu­nity were gen­er­ously do­nat­ing items to go to­wards the bake sale. Some do­nated dish­cloths and oth­ers gave pick­les and jams.

But most of it was made by Chelsea and Emily.

Some of the items they made in­cluded cook­ies, banana bread, Oreo truf­fles, cheese­cake and peanut but­ter pies.

“It was three full days of non­stop bak­ing,” Emily said.

“It def­i­nitely kept them busy for a while,” Chris­tine added.

But the girls didn’t mind the bak­ing.

In fact, it’s their favourite pas­time.

But the moms laughed and ex­plained the cake wouldn’t be made that day, since they just got the bowls and pans cleaned up from the pre­vi­ous few days.

For the girls, it was an ex­pe­ri­ence they won’t soon for­get, and they hope they can host it ev­ery year.

“We re­ally want to keep do­ing it,” said Emily. “We were blown away, and re­ally grate­ful for the do­na­tions.”

The girls will be pre­sent­ing the March fam­ily with the do­na­tion per­son­ally.
