Bake it Forward: You can participate! - (ends 11/1)

Friday, October 22, 2010 Posted by Rita A

I love this time of year because I do the most baking. I enjoy spending time in my kitchen, filled with the aromas of fresh baked cookies, cakes, breads and more. It makes me happy to share my baked goods with friends and family.

Imperial Sugar understands the comfort a tin of cookies can be. Introducing Bake it Forward. A cup of kindness goes a long way!

Bake It Forward is your chance to begin to make a difference in the world. All it takes is a few minutes to bake a batch of cookies, brownies, etc. and send them on their way. Then you can watch online as your Bake It Forward tin continues its journey, spreading confection and affection all over the world.

The process is simple:
* Register your Bake it Forward tin
* Fill up the tin with your homemade goodies and send it along to someone who needs a smile.
* Your recipient will register the tin so you can track where your tin has been. Once they are finished with your scrumptious goodies, it is their turn to fill the tin and pass it along, and so on.

Share a moment of sweetness with someone. Join the worldwide movement of caring. Bake it Forward!

I love this idea! I am proud to be a part of Imperial Sugar's Bake it Forward. I have a special place in my heart for Imperial Sugar from a lovely visit I had a while back. I had the opportunity to meet the wonderful people of Imperial Sugar. I spent a day with Chef Eddy making amazing pastries. Everyone at Imperial Sugar lives up to its sweet reputation.

Bake it Forward is an easy way to spread good feelings. I am participating by sending filled to the brim with home baked goods tins, to four good friends. I chose these friends because they are so busy all the time. Having a cookie with a good cup of coffee, let's them stop for a brief moment and smile. It let's them know I am thinking of them. I hope the smile I gave them inspires them to make a batch of cookies for someone else. It will be interesting to watch the travels of the tins. I wonder how far they will go!

    Oh my, I would fill it with an assortment of cookies; chocolate chip, caramel egg nog, whoopie pies and peanut butter chocolate. I would send it to my cousin. Would love to do several tins if possible.
