Easy gift wrapping for baking

Getting started

Bake up a loaf of your favourite holiday treat. We used the Sugar-and-Spice Monkey Bread recipe. Before getting started on your candy wrapper, cut a piece of parchment paper long enough to wrap around the pan and tape ends to bottom, then wrap decorative twine around loaf and string printable gift tag on twine.
