Whenever we can, we try to remember to do a little something for the sweet nursing staff that take such good care of Nana each day. Today's little giftable was a big box of carrot cake whoopie pies. Nothing says "thank you" better than a sweet, tasty comfort treat.
I've made two big batches of these sweet treats over the past week - they are just so stinkin' good that I had to make plenty!
To package them up, I took a white gift box (shirt box size) and put the two pieces of the box inside one another for re-enforcement. A little two sided tape kept the two pieces together so they kept their shape. From there, I used a square of burlap as a liner and put it catty-corner on the angle inside the white box form. A layer of parchment was put down, followed by a small ton these tasty whoopies. I folded the burlap up around the pies and secured with a seasonal polka dot ribbon. The tags were made by hand using a copper gold paint pen. (It was easier to do it free hand than to go print a tag ... yes, I am that lazy).
A second little box was whipped together for the nursing coordinator. She has been a gem and helped out a few times above and beyond. We wanted to make sure she received one too!
So the sweet pies were made and packaged up with loved and I know thoroughly enjoyed by the kind souls that help Nana each day. We appreciate what they do so much ... it was only right that we give thanks!
