Bake for the Quake.Posted: 04/18/2011
Japan still needs your help and what’s a better way of helping out than through purchasing some delicately baked goods thiscoming 4/20 (weed-free, I swear)? Yes, if you haven’t heard already, I will be participating in a super major collective baking fundraiser, Bake for the Quake, this Wednesday, April 20th, at the Yaletown Roundhouse Community Arts & Recreation Centre (181 Roundhouse Mews). The event runs from 6:00-8:30pm and the entrance is free. Baked goodies will be appropriately priced and partial proceeds go towards Doctors Without Borders, which helps out those affected by the tsuanami and earthquakes Japan has had in the past few weeks. This is a perfect opportunity to get involved in helping Japan. It is also a great treat for anyone who is training to be in a major sweet tooth coma, in preparation of Easter later this weekend.
I will sharing a half table with my sister, Mel, my friends, Karra and Saschie and the lovely team behind My Local Cafe. Together, we will be baking vegan sweet potato cupcakes, Earl grey tea shortbread cookies, walnut banana bread, (almost) vegan chocolate cheesecake, white chocolate matcha brownies, nutella chocolate chip cookies, and the folks from My Local Cafe will be supplying a ton of fun completely gluten-free goodies!
In the meantime, check out this sweet blog post on the Bake for the Quake website to get a sneak peak of some of the baked deliciousness we’ll be supplying this Wednesday.
It’s time to GET BAKED this 4/20. And for a good cause. We hope to see you there!
