Get Some Yummy Goodies at Our Bake Sale Blog Hop (Projects and Prizes)

Thank you for joining us today.
We are ALL extremely glad you have decided to join us after Blogger's temporary technical issue on Thursday and Friday. It is a pleasure to be able to finally share our Bake Sale goodies with everyone.
Did you know...

 1 in 4 children in the United States struggle with hunger. That means 17 million kids go through uncertainty as to when or how they’ll eat. In a country of excess, those numbers are inexcusable.

Saturday, May 14, food bloggers around the country will set out tables of delicious treats to raise money for Share Our Strength, a nonprofit that works to make sure all children in the United States have enough to eat. The bakers will be participating in the second annual National Food Blogger Bake Sale.

Our contribution is Bake Sale goodies that can be used to either help advertise such a worthy cause or items that you would find at a Bake Sale. First, I made the poster above. I used Plantin Schoolbook to cut the letters and shadow at 3". The flower cupcake was cut from Sweet Treats at 2 1/2" and the cake was cut from "Just Because" Cards at 6". The 3 1/2" chocolate chip cookie was cut using From My Kitchen. 
 I made these toppers using the same flower from cupcake #4 on Sweet Treats. Double-sided tape was adhered between the two and it held the toothpick in place nicely. 

I made chocolate cupcakes and tinted the white frosting blue and green. I have to share...I wanted to make pink frosting and didn't have red food coloring, so I sent my 16 year old son to the store to purchase a box. He came home and said that him and another male floor associate looked, but Walmart doesn't carry food coloring. Then I sent him to the neighbor's house to ask to borrow some. One does not own any food coloring and the others were not home! Needless to say, I do not have pink frosted cucpcakes. I guess I am going to have to do it myself next time!
I did bring these cupcakes to school on Friday and shared with the other teachers I work with. They loved them! My students were hoping they were for them and they were a little disappointed when I told they were not, so I guess I will need to make another batch just for them. And this time, I can have pink too!
Be sure to visit everyone! There are only eight of us. You will enjoy a variety of projects created by amazing crafters! There are goodies too.

Here is the line up for the other crafter's particpating today.

Enjoy the delicious yummies!
Georgiana 

P.S. The winners for the 500 Follower Appreciation Giveaway will be announced tomorrow morning. I will add them the bottom of the Bake Sale Blog Hop post. I wanted to provide the one extra day that Blogger temporarily took away. I hope everyone understands.

  1. A very worthwhile cause. I agree with you that it is inexcusable to have this going on in our country. Your cupcake look yummy. My favorite, lemon bars, the tangier the better. I love them!

  20. 17 million hungry children in a country where we worry about and throw money at the most frivolous & ridiculous things! Like you said, inexcusable.
    I think your cupcakes turned out great, but I bet when you go to Wal-Mart you will be able to find the food coloring, just don't ask a guy about it. My fav. baked goodie is.....anything (as long as it doesn't include pie crust.)
