Question: Cake Walks

I am doing the cakewalk at our Spring Fundraiser, this year it is Beach Blanket Bingo Family Night. Ok, so to confess it is only 1.5 weeks away :o After cookie dough pick up tomorrow, which I am the chair, I will be hitting this full force ;) 1. I have sent out and gotten commitments for cake/bake goods from parents, teachers and some local store bakery departments. BUT is there a minimum "certain" number of treats to have? 2. I have read up on doing a cakewalk but cannot decide between letting the "winner pick" their "treat" or assigning numbers to the "treats" and the winning number gets that "treat". Anyone have one that has worked? I am really excited. I luv cakewalks...since it is a Beach Blanket Family theme I will be playing Beach Boys music, have beach pictures laminated for the "walk" and of course some of them with numbers. Lisa

Cakewalks are great fun, and you really can't go wrong. Set your schedule based on how many cakes you have. For instance, if you have eight, then schedule a cake walk every 15 minutes from 12 to 2 p.m. It's really easier to number the cakes and have the winner pull a number out of a basket. That way you avoid the indecision that hits a lot of kids when they have to choose. Good luck!
