Here’s a unique way to differentiate your silent auction from all the rest; pair every item that is up-for-bid with a cake. Whether eaten as desert at the event or taken home, the cakes add an extra flare and help attract that many more bids.
At a recent FFA event that we attended, each student was ask to contribute a cake. With different people donating each cake, some are extremely elaborate, while others simply rate high in the taste scale. Some were tied into the theme of the silent auction item that they were paired with, such as a Belle cake for a Disney themed basket.
