Bake It Forward Giveaway

Bake It Forward Tin

Now that we are all filled to the brim with pumpkin pie, mashed potatoes and gravy and cranberry sauce, let’s turn our attention to holiday baking!

I know that many of you look forward to this time of year; I know I do.  I already have my list of goodies to make to share with my friends and family.  I recently found a very cool way to share too, especially with those who might be far away, and especially if you have someone in mind who could just use a little something to make them smile.

You probably know someone who has had a bad month or a bad year.  You might know someone who needs a little something to brighten their day.  Well, here is is: Bake It Forward.

Bake It Forward is a program that is offered by Imperial Sugar/Dixie Crystals, a company with whom I have had the pleasure of working and they are an exceptional company.  Both companies provide exceptional baking sugars and their Bake It Forward program is a simple way for us all to make a small difference in the world.

The process is simple: you register your tin, get to baking (don’t forget your Imperial Sugar/Dixie Crystals coupons), mail the baked goods, and then track the package online.  When the tin is received, the recipient can then register the tin, tell their story, fill it back up and send it back on its way.  It’s fun to look around the site and see how far some of the tins go.

Bake It Forward Tin

I recently sent a batch of my chocolate chocolate cookies in a Bake It Forward tin to Julie who graciously participated in Megan’s bake sale for Bekah.  I loved packaging the cookies in the tin and the batch fit perfectly.

Grab a box of tissues, a freshly baked cookie and sit down and read some of these Bake It Forward stories, and think of someone in your life who could use a smile today with some baked goods from you!

Imperial Sugar/Dixie Crystals wants to give 5 of you a tin of your own to send to someone full of holiday baked goods.  To enter to win one, simply leave a comment below describing who you want to send it to (you don’t have to share names or specific information) and/or what you would like to send in this tin.


I’m attempting some different options for giveaway entries. The last couple, I have used Rafflecopter, and trying PromoSimple today. Please let me know if you have any feedback!

    I love this idea of paying it forward with baked goods! I would send the tin to my brother and sister-in-law who just had their first baby and will not be making it home for Christmas. Thanks Cassie!

    I would love to do this! I would mail a tin to my good friend who moved and who is feeling lonely and missing her “old” friends. I know she would pass it on to a great place, too.

    I wish I had seen this earlier but will contact Imperial for these wonderful tins to send to my cousins son who was deployed just before Thanksgiving. I’m sure he would appreciate this during the holidays.

    Hi I would love to participate in this next year. How do I sign up. I have never seen Imperial sugar in MT. So how would you get this?

      Hi Robyn, you can use the Bake It Forward tins all year around, not just at Christmas. You can order a tin from the website: http://www.bakeitforward.com and then ship your goodies in it.
