Austin Bakes for Bastrop!

30 Sep

I know it’s been awhile, dear friends, but tomorrow is a GREAT day for baked goods and good causes! (That’s a whole lot of good.)

Saturday, October 1st
10:00am-2:00pm
SEVEN different fantastic locations – check out the Facebook event or the Austin Bakes Blog to find the one closest to you!

Food bloggers, photographers, bakers, business owners, and volunteers are getting together tomorrow to raise money for the Central Texas Wildfire Fund. There are some seriously incredible creations to be sold – these people are gourmet. Seriously. I mean, we’re talking cookies shaped like guitars. Spiced pear cake with salted caramel sauce (WHAT?).  Cookies and brownies and cupcakes and cakes and cups and cupies and cookcakes and EVERYTHING. (See also: granola and jam. Who are these people??)

We did this once before, but it benefited the victims of the tsunami in Japan. At one of the locations, the volunteers spelled out “JAPAN”.

Do you think they’ll be able to spell out “BASTROP” this year??

Let’s hope so.
