Here's a gift idea that might come in handy for someone in your own life. But I think I'd only use it for someone I really knew well.
My sister Abby and I were out shopping together, when one of us saw this book .
Her birthday was coming up, so I made the mental note to go back and get it for her later. But when I did, I flipped through it and got totally jealous! I wanted to make some donuts, too!
So I decided to pick a recipe from her book, make it, and include the completed donuts with the gift. If you do this, be really really careful not to get ingredients on the gift-book. And like I said, save this for someone you know well. Not everyone would appreciate the fact that you used her gift before giving it to her!
I got the box from our local bakery and covered their logos with some stickers of my own. There was only room for 9 donuts in the box, so my family had to sample some of them. Oops.
Abby loved the book. She didn't seem mad at all that I had used it first. Or maybe she's just really good at hiding it...
Happy Birthday, Abby!
