MKEfoodies Holiday Bake Sale

Yesterday's bake sale was a huge success!  Cookies were sold out less than 2 hours into the bake sale.  Lori of MKEfoodies did a great job organizing the event and raising money for Cookies for Kids' Cancer.

Loved the event, but I hope a different venue is chosen in the future because Best Place tours take place in the same room, with a cheesy hour-long video on a loop.  Speaking of which, I have a Groupon for two Best Place tours that I no longer have a desire to use, if anyone is interested :)

I distracted myself from the terrible tour by chatting with these two lovely ladies during the sale.  Lisa, Erica and I manned the silent auction / raffle / milk table.  I won two raffle prizes - a coffee cup and a certificate for Milwaukee Food Tours, which is awesome because I love their food tours!

If you weren't able to join us at the bake sale yesterday, another great way to support Cookies for Kids' Cancer is to buy an Oxo cookie spatula because 50% of profits support the charity.  I received my spatula through my participation in the Food Blogger Cookie Swap.


  1. Thanks again for suggesting I participate in the bake sale! I am glad it turned out so well and raised a lot of money for a good cause. Craig and I scarfed the cake pops right when I got home yesterday and they were delicious.

  2. I was so intent on selecting my cookies I didn't even realize that the other people were there for the tour (I assumed someone was selling something). At least they sold out early!

  3. So glad to hear it was such a success! So bummed I couldn't make it but it will get on my calendar early next year :)

  4. I'm glad we were able to finally meet and for such a good cause too. (I didn't buy the Groupon and after Saturday, I'm really glad - hope you can find someone to buy it!)

  5. It seems like you guys had a great time! I remember going to years ago and I think I gained about 5 pounds from all the cookies!
