’Tis Better To Give

Gifts from the heart—and the kitchen—are sure to impress, especially Red Velvet Cupcakes in Jar

In my book, giving has always trumped receiving. And giving something that I’ve made is even more satisfying. If I put something of myself into a gift—time, labor and creative expression—I think it makes it much more meaningful than something I just went out and bought. There’s no satisfaction greater than seeing the look on someone’s face when they unwrap something I created and it gives them joy.

This month, we received so many good ideas for food-related gifts that I thought I’d share more of them than usual. The best of the bunch, we thought, was an idea for presenting a cupcake in a creative and unusual package. The receiver gets a tasty homemade treat in a reusable container that might inspire yet another gift.
