Mazel Tov! It’s a Girl….Sara is making a Bar Mitzvah this week…
I always enjoy sending something over for a simcha but if you are like me, you may have the same dilemma. You want to look generous…like a balabusta but you have at least two simchos each week to share in-presto-This idea is for you.
Prebake shells come in a variety of shapes and flavors .They are easy to fill (even a ten year old can do it) and fun to decorate. You can also coordinate fondant to match your color scheme.They are also budget friendly so you can afford to be generous. So… when you go to say Mazel Tov at your neighbors Kiddush you can be sure that your confections will be proudly displayed in the ladies section. Smile when you receive these compliments….but whatever you do …don’t give away the secret.

- Mini pre baked tarts such as Bakers Choice found in the baking aisle of grocery stores
