The World’s Largest Bake Sale. Yes, this is a real things and yes it was hosted in one of New York City’s the most famous landmarks – Grand Central Station. About two steps into the event Wednesday night I knew I was going to blog about it. I feel bad, I actually told some vendors I was gong to write about Thursday but my really cute post about peek-a-boo dresses was scheduled. So instead, today I am sharing with you the wonderful event I went to this week. I think most of you will find this more interesting, and you might want to eat lunch, or at least a snack, before you look at these photos:
On Wednesday Grand Central Terminal’s Vanderbilt Hall held World’s Largest Bake Sale. There were baked goods prepared by over 30 restaurants around New York City and they all looked to die for. The best part? It was for charity!
The event supported the Share Our Strength Bake Sale for No Kid Hungry campaign, a national fundraising initiative that encourages people to host bake sales to help end childhood hunger in America. All of the money raised yesterday is going to go towards giving families have access to nutritious foods.
Proceeds from all baked goods sold benefited the campaign as well as the Food Bank for New York City. I was so happy I was in Grand Central and when I saw a sign in a different part of the building I made a be-line for the section. Oh yeah, and Ty Pennington was telling us all to buy things, so I bought things:
But do not fret, I want to share the fun so I picked up an extra Dylan’s Candy Bar Bake & Take Cupcake Kit for one of you! They describe this as giving the gift of cupcakes (or keep them all for yourself!) with this easy to use all-in-one kit and it includes a cupcake carrying case, chocolate cake mix, vanilla frosting mix, multi-colored nonpareils, a piping bag, Dylan’s signature striped cupcake aprons, and assorted cupcake decorating picks. Basically everything you need to make eight amazing cupcakes!
