Feed Your Cravings: Two Upcoming Food Blogger Bake Sales

by moderndomestic on March 18, 2010

What you've been wating for.

My God, there are just so many food blogger events on the horizon. Besides our regular monthly happy hour, and the just-past food and sports blogger happy hour (which was awesome, by the way – and I didn’t even really have to talk about sports!) there are two food blogger bake sales coming up in the next few weeks. Yes, while it’s lovely to discuss the finer points of grilling a steak over cocktails at a happy hour, wouldn’t you rather have a chance to eat some of that lovely food that everyone’s been writing about? Well, now you can.

Sunday, March 28 – Food Blogger Bake Sale Fundraiser for Haiti
The lovely Stephanie of Adventures in Shaw has put her baking and “make it happen” skills together, and has organized a food blogger bake sale to raise money for Haiti. From 9-11am at Zorba’s Cafe (1612 20th St NW), DC’s food bloggers will be selling their finest baked goods to benefit Doctors Without Borders Haiti relief efforts. Please stop by! Sadly I can’t help sell, but plan on donating some lemon cupcakes and salty chocolate thumbprints to the cause.

Saturday, April 17th – DC Food Bloggers Share Our Strength Bakesale
Eastern Market, 9:00am-12:30pm
Colleen of Foodie Tots is heading up the DC Food Bloggers participation in The first annual National Food Bloggers Bake Sale, which is part of Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale. The national bake sale is the brainchild of Gaby Dalkin of WhatsGabyCooking.com, and you can check out her blog to see a list of national participants. All the proceeds of the bake sale will benefit Share Our Strength’s efforts to end childhood hunger in America. If you want to join up and contribute, you can join our team here.

So please come out! Buy the delicious baked goods you’ve been craving – and donate money to a good cause in the process

Eastern Market – that’s my ‘hood! I’ll definitely stop by. Also whoever designed the poster for this did a great job!

Oh, man… I’m getting nervous! I’m a garden blogger who happens to cook occasionally. I hope my baking looks good at Eastern Market…! I’ve seen pictures of some of your stuff, Jenna. I won’t even try to compete. :P

No – don’t feel shy! Everyone is welcome! Although I do feel like everyone gets nervous about their baked good presentation at these things. I know I do. And I will admit to being slightly . . . ahem, overambitious.

Here’s a secret – use cute packaging. At the Spooktacular bake sale back in October Macheesmo wrapped his snickerdoodles in very pretty tissue paper, and they sold like hotcakes.
