Q&A: What are some creative ways to present a project?

Question by Mandy: What are some creative ways to present a project?
I have to present a project in English class on Greek Gods and my teacher said that power point and a poster is to boring. He gave examples like baking a cake with Greek mythology decorations. I was going to do that until he said that we are not aloud to use ideas that he said since he “gave” us the idea. So what are some creative ideas to present this project? Thanks!!

Answer by Green guide tips
Bake sugar cookies in shapes of mythology creatures. Draw them out on paper and cut them out then use a paring knife to cut around them on the dough. You can use frosting or icing paint to make them look more realistic.

How can I liven up a plate of cookies? Creative Cookie tray ideas?

Question by marie: How can I liven up a plate of cookies? Creative Cookie tray ideas?
I’m baking flower and butterfly shaped sugar cookies for a mothers day get-together this weekend, but I’m stumped on how to make them look cute and attractive on a tray. I thought about wrapping cardboard in colorful scrapbook paper and putting the cookies on that. I want to keep it relatively simple, but not as simple as throwing them on a paper plate and calling it good. Anyone have any ideas?

You can buy those gift or hat boxes at the discount stores. Line with baking paper.

If you can be bothered, wrap two cookies in clear cellophane and tie with silver string. Looks amazing and expensive but actually doesn’t cost more than a couple of dollars! People love individually wrapped serving sized things for some reason. If it was me, I would print off a little tag to say “Happy Mothers Day, from Susan” or clever quotes about Mums. It will be a clever talking point.

eg
“There is no way to be a perfect mother, and a million ways to be a good one” Jill Churchill
“All that I am, or hope to be, I owe to my angel mother” Abe Lincoln
“There is only one pretty child in the world, and every mother has it.” Chinese Proverb

Answer by Marina
“Healthy snacks with Girl Scout Cookies”? Isn’t that an oxymoron? LOL I think they’re absolutely perfect as is, especially the Thin Mints. Not sure how to make them healthy, unless you crumbled them up and put them into Vanilla yogurt?

Make everything GREEN! You could have clovers that are decorate with green icing and white sprinkles. Chocolate cakes that are minty. Serve GREEN gummy worms with mashed up Oreos as dirt.
