    Well, shoot! That would be aggravating.

    Freezing in small quantities sounds good. Quick snacks for later, heatable in the microwave?

    Ugh, that stinks. Send em out to the neighborhood kids.

    I never, ever buy candy/sweets/treats for the kids parties in school. They had Valentines cards for the kids, and that was that.

    Because in all honesty, I HATE when my kids come home with 10 tons of candy and junk after a party. I really, truly wish the schools would just put a screaming halt to that (and isnt it ironic how the teachers are always complaining how hyped the kids are, but year after year, allow the junk to come into the class - ugh).

    Sorry you did all that for nothing.

    Maybe a fruit platter next time? You can freeze that! The cup cakes should freeze OK too. I often would make cakes and freeze them, so when there was a birthday party at school I could whip something out of the freezer and presto! An instant home-baked double-choc banana cake!

    Never heard about the bow tie thingies, are they anything like crostoli? I've made that - it keeps in a sealed container for a week or more. That is, assuming we don't pig out. Hmm, have to make more soon...
