nyc bake sale 2013

With perfect spring weather, it felt like one of those weekends when everything could go right–especially for a charity bake sale. Lillian and I had planned NYC Bake Sale for quite some time and finally, the day came for all the details to align.

Lillian, the volunteers, and I gathered at Brooklyn Flea bright and early to set up the booth for the day. Flea’s vendors hovered about checking out the goods way before we finished with the display, mainly looking for something to go with their morning coffee. We were delighted to oblige and to have them spread the news of our bake sale to their customers.






With everyone’s effort, it was a smooth set-up operation, and we promptly welcomed customers at 10 a.m. The day blurred by as we sold every contribution from food bloggers, baking enthusiasts, bakeries, and cookie designers.


Having learned from last years mistakes, I managed to buy a stash of baked goods early on, so I won’t go home empty handed–boy did I score some incredible treats.


Though the baked goods were wonderful, the best reward was a day of camaraderie with fellow bloggers and volunteers bringing the positive energy to make a difference to end childhood hunger through the No Kid Hungry® Campaign.

My sincere gratitude to all volunteers, sponsors, and especially Lillian who made this event a success. As the cookies disappear one by one, I look forward to seeing everyone next spring.
