Bake Sale for the DC State Fair, Nov. 20, 9-1!

by moderndomestic on November 10, 2010

Spread the word, peeps! We're having a bake sale to raise funds to go legit.

Remember how awesome the first-ever DC State Fair was this August? Well, we’re coming back in 2011. And we’re going legit – we’re becoming a 501(c)3 nonprofit, we’re incorporating and we’re filing all the stuff we need to file with DC and with the federal government. We’re in this for the long haul because we think that DC needs a State Fair every year, and we want the event to grow.

But, there are lots of costs associated with becoming incorporated – filing fees, application fees, as well as funding for next year’s fair.  So we’re having a bake sale fundraiser at the 14th and U farmer’s market November 20, from 9 am to 1 pm.

Want to help? Here’s how:

1. Donate Baked Goods – e-mail us at to sign up to help. We are looking for items that are “Fall” themed and encourage you to use produce grown locally to make your baked goods. For a list of local farmers markets, please see here.

2. Volunteer Hours – e-mail us at to sign up to help sell baked goods on Saturday, November 20th. We will have 2 hour shifts.

3. Spread the Word – The electronic flyer above can be posted on websites, blogs, Facebook, etc. (Just right-click and “save as” to download it, or e-mail us and we’ll send it to you.) Please encourage family and friends to visit the market and pick up some delicious baked goods for your holiday gatherings.

4. Donate: You can also donate directly to the Fair through our paypal account. A small donation – $5, $10, or $20 can make a big difference!

DC State Fair was a success because of the enthusiasm that came from DC residents, visitors, volunteers, and contestants. We couldn’t have succeeded without you, and we hope your support will continue!

I have an idea: I’ll make and donate a cherpumple…

Um, I’m sorry, but I forgot to announce the “no cherpumple” clause in the bake sale contract.

Okay, but seriously, i’m kind of interested to see:
1.) What it costs to make a cherpumple (I’m thinking A LOT – because you need ingredients for six separate components).
2.) How much could we get for a cherpumple. Think about it – it’s essentally three pies and one cake combined. Since 9 inch layer cakes cost anywhere from $20-$60 (you think I’m kidding but just look at CakeLove’s CRAZY prices!), and pies go from $12-$18, a cherpumple should be priced at $32 to $78. Or, at least it would be $78 if Cake Love did it.

Since it’s been spread around the internet pretty ferociously recently, I bet you could put it up for auction and fetch a hefty sum. As far as how much it would cost to make, if you weren’t too picky about ingredient quality, which you shouldn’t be since it’s 100% about the novelty, my guess is you could do it for $20-30.

You know, maybe you should do it. We can market it as a “draw” to the bake sale – and, like you said, auction it off.

I could be game for making it if you are serious.
