Bake Sale Recap!

Monday, April 19th, 2010

Good Morning, Darlings!

This past Saturday was our National Bloggers Bake Sale to benefit Share Our Strength. And what a bake sale it was! Being from the south, I am used to seeing tons of bake sales – for church groups, girl scouts, schools – just about for everything.

But this bake sale was…different. It was more a gallery of desserts. Beautiful desserts. Scrumptious desserts. Desserts that belong on an elegantly arranged platter. My cookies were one thing, but the folks that baked for this brought it in style.

Most notably, Chris Arpante of Mele Cotte. Chris’s confections were incredible. Each delight was packaged in it’s own lovely box and around every corner you saw another treat you just couldn’t live without.
