bake sale bonanza!

20 Jun

Thanks to everyone for your patience while I get back to blogging regularly. I have a ton of things to share with you, but for now, news about the bake sale!

To those of you who dropped things off earlier in the day- I have your platters/plates/etc, so please email me at nomblog [at} gmail {dot] com and we can arrange for a pick up! Oh, and if you made the Blueberry Green Tea Cupcakes, please email me! I think my will to bake will wither a bit if I don’t get the recipe. 🙂

The bake sale went wonderfully. We were able to raise much more money for House of Dreams than I had hoped for, which is fantastic! We had a lot of fun and the baked goods- oh, the baked goods! I could hardly restrain myself from buying one of everything. Here is a little picture tour…

Oh Joe’s Brownies, Banana Split Cupcakes and Strawberry Muffins.


Gas Station Pies with choice of apple-cinnamon or strawberry rhubarb filling.


Gingersnap Cookies and Almond Rolls.


Butterscotch Pecan Bars.


Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cinnamon Rolls…drool…


Sprouted Cinnamon Rolls with Glaze.


Jelly Doughnut Cupcakes.


Chocolate Peanut Butter Brownies in the background and wheat free Strawberry Muffins in the foreground.


Peanut Butter Cookies and Apple Streusel Muffins.

Missing from my pictures were my favorite treat of the day- the Blueberry Green Tea Cupcakes. Such a surprisingly perfect and unexpected combination and oh-so-good. I was too preoccupied eating them remember to take a picture.

Thanks to everyone who came and baked and extra special thanks to baker/helper extraordinaire Amy!

    I’m so glad I was able to come! My timing in Portland was just right! I think I was one of the first customers. I wrapped up one of those blueberry muffins with green tea frosting and took it home with me to Santa Cruz on the plane and just had it a little bit ago–INSANELY WONDERFUL. I think I might need the recipe as well! So impressive! I still have that chocolate peanut butter brownie waiting for me…

    Wow, that looks like one seriously awesome bake sale. Nice work! Those jelly donut cupcakes look perfect and I’ve never heard of a Gas Station Pie before but I want one.

    Wow, everything looks amazing! I think I would have been tempted to buy one of everything too.
