Seriously, with a little creative packaging your grocer’s bakery can be a gold mine for yummy and super easy party treats. It can be as easy as picking up a package of your bakery treat of choice and adding some mini plastic cups and disposable forks to your grocery basket before checkout.

Easy Bakery Treat Ideas #givebakery

How about a quick breakfast treat on-the-go? I put two mini cinnamon rolls in a small plastic cup and added a fork on the top for tasty treat.

For a fun party or classroom treat, try adding mini cupcake brownies in mini plastic cups too, and dressing them up in a treat bag and some washi tape flags.

How to make quick and easy party treat cups:

I started with SOLO 3 oz plastic cups, added some mini M&Ms on the bottom about an inch up, then put the mini brownie cupcakes on top.

Then I placed the filled treat cups inside of a plastic treat bag, and added a washi tape flag on the top to secure.

It’s super simple to make washi tape flags.

Simply cut a length of washi tape about 3 inches long. Then cinch up the top of your bag and connect the two ends of the washi tape together to secure. Use the tip of a sharp scissors to cut a triangle shape out of the end to turn it into a pretty flag.

Depending on the pattern of your washi tape, you can customize to a certain holiday or party event.

  28. July 28, 2014 at 7:36 am

    You know those “OMG THIS PERSON IS A GENIUS! HOW DID I NOT THINK OF THAT?! ” moments?
    Yep, I’m just finishing one up now. These are fab! I may not have kiddies myself but I often have a fair few to entertain and I just know these will go down a treat!

    On serious note I would love to treat a lot of very special people in my life. – My mum, my cousins, my grandparents. Deciding one would just be too cruel, especially considering these are so easy to make. I could whip but a big batch in no time!
