    scones and pikelets can be made ahead...

    jelly slice

    a cake

    brownies

    bruschetta (cheat and go to the supermarket and buy the garlic bread that is pre sliced (forget the brand) and then add toppings... the pack advertises that it can be used for bruschetta)

    fruit kebabs

    quiche

    Do Mel's chocolate fudge, that's very easy and always goes down a treat. At least, my book club request it every month!

    How about getting some hot cross buns in? Oat biscuits are good if babies are starting on solids, ginger biscuits if some ladies are having their next bub. Otherwise I'd do fairy cakes.

    If you have time to bake, just do a batch of cookies and muffins.

    If not, just buy a cake and slice it up, and have some nice choocie biscuits

    Yeah - I'd do pikelets ro scones or comething like that. Easy - low stress.

    If all else fails a packet of tim tams and a cake should suffice!

    Persoanlly I always do sandwiches - usually egg - and have crackers, carrot sticks and dips. Otherwise I feel like I am filling them upwith junk!

    Here is the fudge recipe!

    I do things like Fi, I make hummos and cut up carrots & have some rice crackers and make vege muffins:

    1 cup self raising flour
    1 cup milk
    1 egg
    1 cup cheese
    75gm ham chopped
    1 carrot grated
    1 zucchini grated

    Mix all the ingredients together & pop into muffin tin and bake at 180 for 15 minutes or until the top is golden brown. I use mini muffin trays and make small ones....

    or you could do mini quiches

    6 eggs
    1/4 cup plain flour
    1 cup milk
    1 cup grated cheese
    100gm ham
    frozen spinach (maybe half a block?)

    Mix the eggs with milk and flour well & then add the other ingredients, put into mini muffin trays and bake until golden at 180. OR... use normal muffin tins & put a circle of shortcrust pastry down first and then fill with quiche mix.

    Good luck!

    a very very simple thing.
    Puff pastry, vanilla cake mix, and tin apple (or strawberry jam)
    Grease a (12hole) muffin tin, and cut puff pastry into rings. About 6 rings per sheet. lay in muffin hole. Put spoonfull of apple, or some strawberry jam in, and then top with the vanilla cake mix (made as per directions)
    If you use jam - the cake mix will get you about 1 1/2 tins, where as apple, being bulkier, should do you about 2 tins worth.

    Scones/piklets and fruit kebabs sound great!
