Works for Me: The Birthday Edition

Since I am not allowed to get a job, my Dad gives me a fairly substantial allowance to cover the few 'expenses' I have as a 17-year-old (I probably spend most of my money on books *grin*).

But anyway...because I get a nice allowance, Mom and Dad do not purchase my friends' birthday presents for me anymore like they did when I was a little girl. Most people have a favorite 'sweet treat' of some sort that they enjoy, so baking them a present is a nice idea. That and a card usually makes them smile and feel special. Not to mention that most people have everything they need, and I don't want to add to their clutter, either!

That's what works for me!

What a great idea. I love baking for other people. (Most people do not bake and if they do, it isn't for themselves.) Next week is Teacher Appreciation Week, so I'm going to bake a treat for my boys' teachers. I'm off to find out what their "favorite" is...
