The ManFlesh's employer has an Employee Crisis Assistance Program which holds fundraisers at the office. Today they're having a bake sale with employee contributed baked goods.  Small treats like cupcakes and cookies will be sold individually, goods like cakes and pies will be sold under a silent action. So, I sent him off with a dozen of these this morning and directions to bid on a pie if a good one is on the block.  Wink 



It's a wilderness/wildlife preservation group whose primary donor base are elk hunters, so camo and elk seemed extra appropriate.  I used this tutorial for the cupcakes that I found on pinterest: http://craftymamabakes.com/2012/08/03/camouflage-cupcakes-tutorial/



Annnnnnd if you spend much time in the woods and wildlife watching you know that scat (droppings, feces, poop) is an important indicator of what is around (and what they're eating) so I used some sprinkles to add a little more humor to the decorations.  Like I doo do.



The toppers are made from free clip art I found online, printed on card stock.

Ha ha ha, you doo the best work! I love the way the scat is carefully arranged at the appropriate place, relative to the illustration. Cheesy

Thanks! I can only take original-idea credit for the toppers and the candy poop.

I have been told they were quite a hit at the bake sale, though!

You always continue to amaze me. How totally cool! I am sure these will be swiped up super quick  Grin Hope ManFlesh picks a good pie  Cheesy Love your poo poo dropings. That added final detail touch! I have been hunting before, myself. Could never shoot anything, but know how to be quiet and be a spotter. And I don't cry when it is killed, even though I wish to. Sorry, I am a tree hugger.

Thanks y'all!  I have heard through my source that they were very popular and went quickly (at least down to the last 3 the last I herd heard)!  All I can say is that it seems most people working there do not use the same internet that I do and I am glad for it!

I never kid about candy elk poop. Baby goat poop? Maybe.

(see what I did there?)
