Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale Wrap Up

We held our second Brooklyn bake sale on Sunday and a wonderful time was had by all. We ate, drank, made merry, sang, danced and raised over $1000 for Farm Sanctuary and Sea Shepherd (and we're not done yet, so if you'd like to contribute, keep reading).

Oh yeah. There were also some cakes and things.

That's me being completely overwhelmed by the selection. We had:

Berry Muffins
Zucchini Muffins
Mini Coffee Cakes
Tomato Rosemary Scones
Banana Bread
Aloha Bread
Raspberry Chocolate Chip Blondies
Peach Pocket Pies
Chocolate Raspberry Bundt Cake
Chocolate Orange Agave Sweetened Cupcakes
Cappuccino Cupcakes
Margarita Cupcakes
Apricot Almond Cupcakes
Blackberry Topped Low Fat Cupcakes
Pineapple Right Side Upcakes
Vanilla Gluten Free Cupcakes with Chocolate Buttercream Frosting
Sugar Cookies
Butterscotch Oatmeal Cookies
Chocolate Chip Trifecta Cookies
Chocolate Chocolate Mint Chunk Cookies
White Chocolate Chip Cashew Butter Cookies
Chocolate Chip Cookies

All vegan. All homemade. Damn, we're good.

As we did last time, we got most of our recipes from Isa Chandra Moskowitz and Terry Hope Romero's books, but we also broke out Yellow Rose Recipes and Papa Tofu. Also Panda With Cookie and sarchan from The PPK got creative with their own awesome recipes.

We had a great turnout. Loads of friends and family came by. If there's anything better than raising money for a great cause, it's raising money for a great cause while spending time with awesome people. We did that.

On to the pictures!

We weren't just selling baked goods, either. S. Fulton came by and was kind enough to donate several copies of both volumes of Cookin' With My Crawdaddy to sell as part of our fundraiser. We still have one copy of Part II left! If you'd like to buy it, comment here or email me and we'll work something out.

We also had a bunch of Adrienne Dee-Olsen's handmade thematic earrings for sale. She crafted them out of fimo clay, Japanese toys and other things. We still have a few pairs of these available too, so if you'd like to buy some (with the proceeds going to the charities, of course), again, please leave a comment or email me.

Seal cubs!


Roll Cakes!


We even caught the creator in the act:

It was a pretty long day. Some of us passed the time with a dance party...

While others chased people into the street with cupcakes and shoved them in their faces until they agreed to buy something.

I'm still not sure which was the better business tactic, but either way, people laughed!

Many thanks to:
Compassion For Animals for organizing the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale
Open Source Gallery
The people of the PPK, who are totally awesome
Everyone who baked, sewed, sculpted, shopped, drove, drew, printed, promoted, re-Tweeted, listened, laughed, chalked, location scouted, and contributed to the success of this bake sale in myriad ways I'm forgetting (for which I apologize). Without that, there would have been no bake sale, which would have sucked.

I think that's it. I promise to shut up about the bake sale now...until we get our final fundraising total.
