Just two more days until the Online Bake Sale for Japan
28 March 2011 § 1 Comment
Food is very important to me which is why I started this blog. As well as being a necessity, food is a comfort. I love food. Things always seem better after cake. So, when I read about the Tomato Tart‘s online bake sale for Japan, I had to get involved. Sabrina Modelle, of the Tomato Tart, approached a few people online and her initiative to raise money has mushroomed in a few days to include over 90 food bloggers, writers, chefs and professional bakers in 9 countries. Money raised from the bake sale will be going to Second Harvest Japan, they are a food bank working hard to feed people after the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear reactor problems.
On 30th March, there will be an online auction on the Tomato Tart where you can bid on wonderful baked goods. If you have the highest bid, then you will be sent those delicious baked goods. The choice is astounding – anything and everything chocolate, blood orange cake, plus all the latest food fad stuff – vegan and gluten-free – over 90 wonderful things – cakes, cookies, sweets.
I will be offering my simple, but very, very tasty banana chocolate chip bread as it travels well and is delicious. It will be beautifully wrapped in a tea towel. So you can bid on it next week if you want something to go with your morning tea or coffee. If no one wants it…(sob!)…I will buy it myself and give it to the local Human Needs food pantry.
