Joanna Gaines’ daughter, Ella, is already has a summer job.
The former “Fixer Upper” star posted a photo on Instagram today of the young baker and her goods, which she’s selling at the Magnolia headquarters in Waco.
Joanna Gaines says she has been baking some of her family’s favorite recipes, some of which appear in her mom’s cookbook that came out this spring.
Her new summer business is selling baked goods at the office when she goes to work with me. Tonight we stayed up late and she made Aunt Opal's banana pudding and the chocolate chip cookies from my cookbook. She's going to make a heck of a business woman 😉 #magnoliatablecookbook #ellassweetdeliveries
Ella made her Aunt Opal’s banana pudding and the chocolate chip cookies from her mom’s cookbook this week, which got me thinking, which recipes would I make and sell — in jars or otherwise — for a summer business?
Cake pops! For an even easier project, you could make “deconstructed cake pops in a jar” and net a pretty penny in sales.
These gluten-free chiffon cake and chocolate ganache recipes would be perfect to serve inside a small Mason jar. You could even take a cue from Ella and tie some twine and a spoon around the top to boost sales.
My very favorite summer cake recipe is that upside down peach cake, which I’m sure I could figure out how to bake in the jars, for easy transport and presentation. Maybe I could even figure out how to bake it in an Instant Pot…
That cherry cheesecake from earlier this week could also easily be baked into small jars or containers.
