how I wrapped my fudge

If you were curious as to how I wrapped my fudge - the super easy fudge (and perhaps wanted some inspiration as to how to wrap yours), this is a post for you. You're welcome.

1. Arrange your squares or rectangles or triangles bits of fudge onto a large(ish) bit of greaseproof paper.

If you're packing quite a bit of fudge, put a little sheet of greaseproof paper between each layer so that they don't stick together.

2. Wrap the paper as you would for a gift or parcel and secure with bakers' twine.

Or string or jute or ribbon. (These below were wrapped with white greaseproof paper, which I quite like.)

You could stop there and add a mini tag (here's one I punched a hole into and used in a scrapbook. There it is on the right).

I chose to put my parcels into cellophane bags and top them with a card label.

Stick a label onto the card (so that the recipients know what they're getting).

If you're packaging a few, perhaps you could shred some newspaper or old brown wrapping paper to pad it out. That's what I did.

Finished! Now I'm going to update the fudge-making post with some other recipe ideas.
