Come treat your sweet tooth & help Japan…all at one event!
Some of our favorite bakeries, restaurants, and other businesses are hosting a nation-wide bake sale this weekend, with some sweet treats made by some of the most talented professional and amateur bakers around. Word on the street is that DC’s event will have sweets from the newest cupcake food truck (Cupcake Buggy) and Sprinkles cupcakes as well as… from you, if you would like to participate!
Professional and amateurs bakers, cooks, artists and musicians are coming together around food to make something big happen at the 5th street Busboys and Poets this Saturday, April 2nd. If you would like to participate, you can either bake something or come and eat something! All proceeds collected will go to Peace Winds Japan, a Japanese NGO dedicated to the support of people in distress, threatened by conflict, poverty, or other turmoil. The organization is currently providing emergency relief to the victims of the earthquake and tsunami in Northern Japan.
Baked goods will be accepted from 8:30-10am at Busboys and Poets. You do not have to be a professional baker but you do have to deliver your treats with a complete list of ingredients as well as a name for the item. If possible, baked goods should be individually wrapped. Japanese themed treats, such as green tea flavoured items or mochi are more than welcomed! If you want more information or plan to participate as a baker, please email Joelle at firstname.lastname@example.org and don’t forget to spread the word on twitter with the hashtag #bakesale4japan.
