Leaving day yummies for the staff room
« on: July 13, 2012, 10:13:31 AM »
Hello all,

Not quite the intellectual and reflective post that most contribute to this forum but no less important...food for staff! I am leaving at the end of term and want to provide some yummy things for the staff at break time next week. Everyone always does cakes (either cupcakes or large cakes to share) or 3 for 2 packs of various nibbles from supermarkets. I was wondering if anyone had any slightly different ideas of what staff may want as a little thank you and goodbye from me. Perhaps I am underestimating the power of the cupcake and that is truly all they would want or need?

Thank you!

I quite like having fruit to snack on, so maybe so fresh fruit.

Graham you are absolutely right....alcohol over cake will be much more gratefully received. And if it is deemed inappropriate and unprofessional my references for the new job have long since been given  ;)

Might be a bit on the expensive side though

Dear Volcano Meg

Why not use your forum name and buy some readymade little fairy cakes and cover them with red  / orange icing as your volcano cupcakes....

BTW Best of luck for the future.....

Good luck!

I think most other options are a bit pricey - depending how big your school is! I love the volcano cupcakes idea! If you did fruit - a big fruit salad may be the way to go. Lots of teachers need that sugar rush at this time of year though!

Our wellbeing committee uses any staff fund remaining at the end of the year for nibbles and we have different things each day; cheese/crackers/bread (always popular), fruit platters are great too, the packs of mini donuts/brownies/flapjacks the supermarkets do are good too.
