Eat My Blog Recap: December 2009

January 17, 2010

EAT MY BLOG POSTCARD

The first-ever Eat My Blog charity bake sale raised $3,000 for the Los Angeles Regional Foodbank. Here are some highlights from the day:

GETTING READY COLLAGE

The Eat My Blog planning committee, along with our chief supporter Vernon Chaplin, arrived at Zeke’s Smokehouse two hours before game time. Before the crowds rolled in, we did what needed to be done—platters were dolled up with cute wrapping paper, donated boxes were assembled, and each treat was given a hand-crafted name tag and price.

THE SPREAD COLLAGE

About an hour before showtime, we started to lay out the irresistible spread. Thirty-six square feet of surface area wasn’t enough to display all of the wonderful creations we received.

SWEET TREATS COLLAGE

From bacon-wrapped bread sticks to butterscotch budino, the diversity, quality, and uniqueness of the treats on hand was phenomenal. Each participating blogger put a lot of heart, soul, and time into crafting a delight that would please the eye and rock the taste buds.

INGRID AND KIM

Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf served coffee and hot chocolate at the event, with all proceeds donated to the Foodbank. Kim of Ravenous Couple and H.C. of L.A. and O.C. Foodventures lent a hand to Ingrid, the barista on duty, throughout the day.

WORKING COLLAGE

Thanks to the phenomenal turnout, over 1,000 baked goods were sold in under four hours!

The Eat My Blog committee would like to extend heartfelt thank yous to the Los Angeles food blogging community (a full list of participating bloggers here), Zeke’s Smokehouse, JS2 Communications, Los Angeles Times, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf, Challenge Dairy (the official butter sponsor of Eat My Blog), Kiss My Bundt, Vanilla Bake Shop, Susina Bakery, Joan’s on Third, 20th Century Fox, and last but certainly not least, everyone who came out to the bake sale and bought a treat or ten—we couldn’t have done it without you all.

    Hey Ladies,

    There was so much yummy stuff there, and I’m wondering what the will of the snacking public is: Should we make the same stuff to sell in June that we made in December–which by all accounts was QUITE popular–or should we unveil some new creations?

    What’ll it be, folks?

    Cheers! Carol, a.k.a. The Hungry Passport

      Hi Carol!

      We’ll leave it up to you–make whatever moves you! I made whoopie pies last time, and I think I may make something different for the next one. I’m thinking my grandmother’s blueberry coffee cake. Do you have any ideas about what you”ll make?

      Can’t wait to see you at the next bake sale!

    Hi Laurie,

    Hmm, still trying to figure that one out. I’d like to say “all of the above” but that’s probably a bit ambitious. Then there’s that part of me that just wants to bring a giant fryer & cook bacon on the spot!

    Cheers!

    Carol
