We’re putting together a vegan bake sale to raise some much-needed money for Japan in the wake of Friday’s devastating 8.9 magnitude earthquake. More details are coming soon! Check out our blog for updates: http://akronveganbakesaleforjapan.wordpress.com/

We need bakers, people to distribute flyers around town, donations (napkins, plates, to-go boxes, etc), and people to help out on the day of the event.

Interested in helping out? Please contact us at akronveganbakesale@gmail.com

I so wanted one of those tarts and they sold out before I set one aside. On a brighter note, we raised $2901.50!

Oh my... I want to eat everything you bought yesterday! We were so slammed all afternoon that I barely got to shop for myself before everything sold out. All I have left is a vegan Twinkie! Those mini cheesecakes were THE BOMB, however... mmmm.

I know! I didn't realize how sad I was about everything I missed out on until I started seeing all of the photos today. It's okay...we missed out for good reason...but next year, I'm taking a few minutes out from volunteering to shop for sure.

I never even saw those chocolate cupcakes from Tofu666. Amazing!

If it's any consolation, I didn't get to eat any of the Espresso cupcakes either ;)

So now, here's my problem: How do I STOP baking now that it's over? I'm prepping the yeast for more cinnamon rolls right now... Christina, I think you should put together another bake sale right now & I'll just be a shopper this time :D

Sara-I was thinking the same thing! We need to each do more baking just to share with each other. I'll totally buy cinnamon rolls if you're baking them. They looked amazing! I need that recipe. I can never get them to turn out, so end up buying a dozen at Pattycake every time we're in Columbus and freezing them.

We should just have a post bake sale food party. I stumbled across the cinnamon rolls recipe online, but it's apparently from Vegan Brunch.

You're right! We really should have a post party for all of the bakers and everyone has to bring baked goods to share! :)

+1 to the suggested idea. Apart from taking all cakes and other baked stuff, bring recipes with you. I'm sure there will lots of people who'd like to make it at their homes.
