Young girls love to bake
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.
