    Sam's Club/Walmart

    You can always count on your local Walmart or Sam's Club to have a handful of your favorite items at the store - including sweet treats and baked goods from their bakery. They'll even create a custom cake or cupcakes for any special occasion with a gourmet taste, but a very affordable price! You can find Sam's Club in Lufkin (if you have a membership) or Walmart in both Lufkin and Nacogdoches. Their grocery section is also convenient if you're looking for any type of baking ingredients.

    Your Kitchen - Great DIY Dessert Recipes!

    If you'd rather spend quality time with your kids or yourself preparing desserts at home rather than running to the store to grab something, we've got some great websites and recipes for you to check out. Taste of Home has a wide selection of cakes, truffles, cupcakes, cookies and other holiday ideas that are fun to make, and taste amazing! I'm also a big fan of Pinterest, where people submit links, photos and recipes of their favorite things. I great great ideas from the blogs, and find myself getting a little addicted to the website at times!
