SW@P YOUR TREATS - 5 easy steps

Step #1 MEET your circle

Meet at the pre-arranged venue at the agreed time. Be punctual as the whole Sw@p takes only a few minutes! 

Sw@p Tip
Plan ahead to drop off your treats to another circle member, before the Sw@p, if you can’t make the pre-arranged Sw@p time.  They can do the Sw@p for you that week and you can arrange to collect your goodies from them later on.


Step #2 EXCHANGE your treats

Exchange the number of packs that reflects the number of members participating that week.  Everyone should end up with an equal amount of each item baked by your circle, that week.

You don’t make a pack for yourself so the total number of packs = the number of participating members excluding you.  Put the rest of the items into the BakeSw@p Pool.

Sw@p Tip
If your treats are suitable to freeze, pack them in bags of two (2) to make it easy to go straight from Sw@p to freezer!


Step #3 POOL the extras

The BakeSw@p Pool is made up of the remainder of items not evenly divisible by the total number of that week’s participating members. These extra items can then be distributed among the group.

For example:
18 treats - 8 members. This means 7 packs of 2 items each (excluding yourself) = 14 plus 4 treats into the Pool. The Pool will total 32. Which means there are 32 items for each member to select 4 items from.

Sw@p Tip
Pool items should be bagged individually.


Step #4 ROUND ROBIN

Take turns to select one item from the BakeSw@p Pool until all items have been allocated. Everyone should end up with an equal amount of items from the Pool.

For example: All 8 members will get to choose 4 additional items each from the pool of 32.

Sw@p Tip
Round Robin style works best – everyone takes one item in turn. Then repeat the process. You can change the order each time by starting each round with the person who picked last in the previous round.


Step #5 STORE your treats

Get your treats x18 home and into the fridge or freezer ASAP after the Sw@p.

Sw@p Tip
Use BakeSw@p treats that can’t be frozen first and then progress through the week according to perishability of that week’s menu.

Working out your SW@P PACKS and extra POOL items

With BakeSw@p you always get back the same number of items in total that you contribute, no matter how many of you bake and sw@p. The constant of 18 pieces week-to-week, no matter what, keeps it simple so you can plan, bake and swap with ease.

We’ve made it easy to work out how to pack up your treats for your sw@p and to see what you’ll be bringing home. 

Sw@p pack tips [circle of 8 bakers as an example]:
  • The number of participating bakers includes you (BakeSw@ppers). [For example: 8 bakers, including you.]
  • Make up an individual Sw@p pack for each person in your circle that is baking that week. Don’t make a pack for yourself – you already have 6 of your treats at home! [For example, make up 7 packs]
  • Divide the 18 pieces by the number of BakeSw@ppers (excluding yourself) to work out how many pieces to put into each Sw@p pack so everyone gets the same amount.  Any extras go into the Pool. [For example, make up 7 packs of 2 items and put 4 into the Pool.  7 x 2 = 14 + 4 = 18]
  • Packing your treats in multiples of 2 makes it easy to Sw@p, store and serve.  Pool items should be put into individual bags to make the Round Robin easy.
  • Everyone bakes something different so the more people that bake the more variety in your BakeSw@p pantry.  The variety of items is the same number as the participating bakers.
