Big Screen Bake Sale!

Remember Bake for the Quake and the great amount of money we generated to help Japan? Well, it looks like I’ll be baking for charity again coming September!  This time, I will be featuring my Dolce Delights goodies at the Big Screen Bake Sale which is being put on by a couple of my friends who love giving back to the community. This bake sale will occur on Sunday, September 4th, 2011 from 1:00–4:00pm at Creekside Community Recreation Centre (1 Athletes Way, Vancouver) and all proceeds from this fundraiser will go directly to Easter Seals, an organization which helps fund summer camps for children with disabilities. This is going to be super fun event! It is also movie-themed and of course, y’all know which movie I chose for my theme: Harry Potter, duh!  Yes, ladies and gentlemen, I will be making pumpkin pasties, cauldron cupcakes, and Harry Potter’s FAVOURITE dessert ever: treacle tarts! Um, yeah. Harry Potter dreams come true. My table will be DECKED OUT in Harry Potter gear and I will also be donning my Gryffindor swag, of course.

This is a great opportunity to help a worthwhile cause. And if you haven’t tried my cupcakes yet, this is probably the place to do so! So please come out and support and buy some goodies — your help is greatly appreciated! Or feel free to come out and take pictures with me in my Gryffindor costume!

Also, check out the super sweet post on me and my cupcake biz, Dolce Delights. Thanks Mandy!

It all ends: 7.15.

If you got that tagline, you know I’m talking about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 2. And I’m not just talking about the movie, I’m talking about the WHOLE DAMN SERIES. Harry Potter has been such a huge part of my life. After being introduced to it when I was 10 (I was actually a late-bloomer, believe it or not. I got into it right before the Prisoner of Azkaban came out, also my favourite book out of the series), I just couldn’t stop reading it. It was like an addiction. I don’t know about anybody else, but I am actually super obsessed with it. I read the series every single summer (yes, the whole series) and dress up for each book and movie release (with an official Gryffindor costume and two scarves from the Seattle exhibit and Harry Potter Wizarding World). I also used to be widely obsessed with the ultimate Harry Potter test in which I got all 400 questions right. Yes. I am a self-profound nerd within the realm of Harry Potter…and it all ends tonight. I honestly don’t know how I’m going to live. No more books? No more movies? Of course we can live on through Pottermore but it’s just not the same. Here’s to the end of the best 12 years of my life!

Oh fuck. I just watched the trailer for the billionth time and started tearing up. AHHHH t-minus 11 hours and 10 minutes!!!
