    Default Creative idea needed for office Christmas treat

    Okay,...some of the gals in our office thought it would be a "neat" idea to do the 12 days of Christmas this year. We are to bring a food item, anything we want, that everyone can enjoy. The catch is that it has to do with your day of the 12 days of Christmas. Mine is 9 ladies dancing. Uggg!

    I already know I am stopping off that morning and buying muffins, so that is easy. (I am not a baker,...heck, I am barely a semi-good cook! not my thing!) But I need a tie-in to the 9 ladies dancing. I tried looking at a local bakery, Walmart and a party supply store for those little cupcake toppers. The little plastic ones that stick in the top of the cakes. I figured I could find some little ballerinas, but no luck.

    Any ideas on how to incorporate the 9 ladies dancing into my muffins? Thank you!

    Put a coupon for a free lap dance at the local titty bar in every muffin?

    Pipecleaner ballerinas? A couple of twists, a tiny bit of tulle tied on the middle and a bead for the head.

    lol @ all the stripper comments. If I had the cash I would try that,...just to cause a stir here.

    If you have a big chain store in your area, with a bakery, try calling them and seeing if they have any in their stock that they'll sell to you.

    Make some sugar cookies with a ballerina cutter.

    Cupcakes and have them iced with dancers/ballerinas/strippers on them. Or the pipecleaner ballerina is a good idea too.

    Thanks everyone. Going to try to find a cookie cutter or do the pipe cleaners on top. Running out of time, so I hope I can get it solved this weekend.

    When I worked at a chain grocery store bakery we always had a ton of ballerina figures lying around. They were a mainstay on some of the generic "birthday cakes for girls". I would have thought a party store would have them, too, but do try a big chain bakery as nwgirl suggested if you're still interested in those!

    Try a dollar store, particularly a fancier japanese one if you have any of those around.
