When the leaves change and the rain comes I feel like baking! Whether you’re a baker or prefer to leave it to the professionals, who doesn’t like to enjoy some sweet treats on a brisk autumn day?  Well, we are over the moon excited to have Delectable Baked Goods at Fancy That on October 8th!  She’ll be sampling her amazing goodies from 11 to 3 and taking pre-orders for Halloween Cookie Kits!

Speaking of Halloween Cookie Kits, we were lucky enough to get to test them out!  My kids absolutely loved them!  They had so much fun frosting and decorating the cookies with all the different sprinkles.  Oh and they tasted really good too!

Aren’t they pretty?  Clearly my children like sprinkles.

Kid tested, kid approved!  This one’s already got a sugar high. I might have nibbled on a cookie…or two.

How perfect would these kits be for a Halloween party? Paired with some of Fancy That’s scary cute Halloween decor, the kids will be screaming…joyfully!
