Economics Lesson and a Bake Sale

We had our own little family bake sale at our homeschool co-op.  My kids made a killin'.  They learned about running a small business, hard work, profit, expenses, etc.     

Notice in the first picture, there is a muffin missing? My son stole a muffin and I made him pay me .5o cents.  haha. Not really, but I did explain to him, we can't eat too much more profit. 

Grandma Johnson's Scones, from All Recipes were one of the best sellers.  Oh my gosh, so good!!!  I linked the recipe we used.  Really! Try it. So perfectly, perfect. Not too dry. Not too wet. A perfect scone.
RISE babies RISE!!!  These Cinnamon Rolls III were the BOMB!!! I loved this recipe because it was so easy to make the dough in the bread maker.  Very easy to prepare homemade and so delicious.  

Below is my 12 year old son Jonah with the finished product, trying his best not to breathe pathogens onto the product.  He sold one pan for $5.00 then the rest of the rolls, he sold for $1.00 a piece.

They ended up profiting over $20.00. We could have made more, but my son kept dipping into our earnings to buy a piece of pizza and a drink from our competition. I was mad, because he had a tuna fish sandwich in the car. I guess Tuna isn't as marketable as pizza.

 Supply and demand, I guess. *sigh*

Which would you make? The scones? The cinnamon rolls?  Both?
I hope you'll leave a comment and share.

Please follow along on our blogging adventure too.  We love new (and old) friends. :)

Be a Blessing!
