Raspberry Almond Rugelach


I used Karma Cucina’s recipe for the rugelach. They turned out great!


After getting everything baked I packaged it all up in boxes I bought from Michael’s and Think Garnish. I think presentation is just as important as the taste.

  • Do you like to bake or make homemade gifts?
  • How important do you think the presentation of baked goods is?


  1. All these desserts are so cute! I love 'em! :)

  2. Totally agree! Presentation is everything! And I LOVE Think Garnish! I buy all of my labels and boxes from them. Have you read their blog? They have so many awesome ways to package things up :)

  3. Rach - Thanks!

    Kristy - Yes I have read their blog! I love their packaging ideas!
