Ride to Conquer Cancer Silent Auction

Hey everyone,
I  mentioned in my recent newsletter that my friend Henry is participating in the "Ride to Conquer Cancer" he's set up a silent auction on his blog where you can bid on some awesome stuff for a great cause. Items have been donated by Oh Kuol, Herrohachi, The Eye Opener Optical and myself. 100% of the proceeds will be donated to the BC Cancer Foundation.

I've donated a tshirt of your choice and a cute mystery box valued at $40. If you were planning to purchase a Tshirt or a mystery box from me sometime in the near future please make a bid and support a great cause in the process. You can view and bid on the items here: Don't worry if you're not local you can still bid! If you win the items will be shipped to you after the donation is made.

Let's work together and conquer cancer! Spread the word to your friends and family if you think they may be interested in participating.


Here's some of the stuff up for grabs:

Some new earring designs that I will have at the show this weekend. There's suppose to be more but I ran out of sealant and the new bottles I bought are bad so they needed to be sent back :( Will have these up in the shop soon!

Baker's Market

I've had a lot of sugar and the weekend is not over yet. It started off yesterday when I bought a dozen cream puffs from Beard Papa's and they gave us 2 for free as a Mother's Day special. I ate like 4 of those... yes, I really like cream puffs :P Today my mom and I hit up Baker's Market. It really wasn't what I expected. Other than the fact that it was kind of the middle of nowhere, I was a pretty disappointed to find that the event was held in the back room of some wedding shop and was SUPER cramped and stuffy. I think the place was less than 200sq ft! BUT I did manage to get some goodies and some of the vendors were nice enough to let me take photos :D

Isn't this cupcake so pretty? I love the ruffly frosting!
These are really good. I think I need to learn to make these.

Handmade truffles anyone? These are made by Chef Kev.

These are by cookievonster. Ridiculously cute!

I bought some Mexican vanilla beans from Au Cacao. Never actually used vanilla beans before but I look forward to making some creme brulee and vanilla sugar in the near future!
YUMmmm.. macaroons! Okay, I totally forgot the name of the shop that makes these but they are
SO good. Seriously, I wish I got more.

Whooooooopie Pies from bakesale. I love their packaging.
So simple and so effective!

A burnt caramel macaroon. I really need to try to make these again.
The last time it was like... epic failure.

A mother's day gift for my grandma.

A mini cupcake from bakesale. It was so moist. I wish the frosting was prettier looking. For some reason they all looked very smooshed or like someone flattened them with their thumbs? Nonetheless, I was very tempted to devour the entire box but they weren't for me otherwise I totally would have!
