Bake sale photos


Thank you so much to everyone who helped support our Hurricane Sandy bake sale. Here are a few photos…

From top: Two of the great kids working at the bake sale; Anna, Samantha and me; a sweet girl; a rad Babar backpack; The Cutest Baby in Baby History; a little pup, and the hungry crowd.

And the bake-sale kids taking a well-deserved pizza break.

We had a great afternoon, surrounded by Nutella fudge, salted chocolate chip cookies and marshmallow brownies still warm from the oven. In the end, the bake sale raised $2400, which was generously matched by DwellStudio, for a grand total of $4800 to go toward hurricane relief efforts. Hurray! Thanks again for all your help. xoxo

(Top photo of two cute Cup of Jo readers—Caroline and Clare—who stopped by for treats. Thanks again!)

  18. Congrats on the funds, the kids are such cuties and so sweet!

  19. Super well done!!!

    It’s a shame really that I live on the other end of the world, because I a) love such initiatives, b) love baking and c) love this blog and the lovely lady behind it so it would have been the ideal chance to contribute…

    Maybe another time if I master teleportation ;)

  20. Those goodies look so yummy! Congratulations!!!!

  21. that is a huge amount of money for a bake sale! Way to go!

  22. Oh wow what a great effort – looks like a brilliant day and those still-warm-from-the-oven marshmallow brownies sound amazing! :)

  23. Good on you, and the kids, for doing this. I’m from New Jersey and we were very lucky after the storm but many friends weren’t. It’s been amazing to see the community come together to help each other out.

  24. Wow! That is a great fundraiser! It looks like you had so much fun doing it. What a wonderful idea.

  25. I inhaled the chocolate fudge before I was even a block away!
    Was going to stop and say “hi”, but you were chatting with some others so I flashed a “seeing teacher outside of school” type smile instead. :)

  26. So glad your bake sale went well! Looks like a good time and kudos on raising so much money. Thanks for sharing all the fun pictures!

  27. A Babar backpack??? WOW!! Good for you doing the Bake Sale!! Glad everything worked out great!!
