6 Baked Goods for Gifting

July 30, 2014

There's a shortage of thoughtful gift-giving these days. We e-mail cards and send checks. We forget favorite colors and special tastes. Though we'd never knock the kindness behind a quick message (or quick cash), there's just something about a homemade plate of treats that says, "I care." 

Whether you've got new neighbors in your 'hood or you're just trying to brighten up a friend's week, nothing makes an impact quite like a plateful of something delicious that's sweetly presented and full of flavor.

Gift your treat on a plate the recipient can keep, and you just might up your chances of a return act of kindness.
