Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale!!
I've been so excited for the last couple of months, knowing that the Sydney arm of the Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale was coming up.
I got involved in the bake sale thanks to Mandee's invitation, and she, Michelle and I met up a couple of times and talked on the intarwebs, organised a time, a place, a charity (WSPA) and what we were going to make. Mandee also got a whole bunch of other vegans on board to bring along yummies to sell as well. We also tried to figure out what we'd do with the leftovers and decided to take them to work to sell to workmates.
I decided to go with a biscuit theme, and spent 5 hours one night after work churning out four and a half dozen large chocolate chip cookies (variations on my standard recipe) and 5 dozen melting moments - some gluten free and some chock full of gluten.
Vanilla Melting Moments, awaiting their icing. I also made chocolate, passionfruit and gluten free lemon (and chocolate) melting moments.
Mandee has a great wrap up of the day itself, which was amazing and brilliant and so much fun and I met so many lovely people (boy, vegans are way pretty and shiny and fabby, aren't they?) and we raised $908.70 for WSPA!!!
I'm hoping that we'll be able to run a bake sale again sooner rather than later. Not that I've already started planning what I'd make or anything (cherry pie, custard tart, almond cookies, sausage rolls - anyone?)
