Yesterday, Crusaders Jenn, Elisa and I held our very first bake sale at Horizon Church in Owings Mills, MD. Our goal was to raise money for Share Our Strength’s Great American Bake Sale to support the No Kid Hungry Campaign, and thanks to the Horizon family, we did just that!
It was amazing to see how happy all the sweet treats made everyone and to witness the generosity of those who donated without asking for anything in return. We started with 2 dozen Chocolate Chocolate cake pops (which the kids LOVED!), 2 dozen Snickers cupcakes, 2 dozen Lemon Raspberry cupcakes, and 2 different kinds of blondies. By the end we couldn’t believe we had sold almost everything!
Even though we did really well and raised about $140, we still haven’t reached our target of raising $300 dollars for this wonderful cause. If you aren’t familiar with the Great American Bake Sale and the No Kid Hungry campaign, you can read more here or see our interview with La Casa de Sweets, a charity baker that is committed to raising money and awareness for hungry kids in America.
We are raising money until April 30th, so if you are interested, please consider donating! Even if you can only give $1, every little bit helps!
Throughout the week we will feature our recipe reviews for the Chocolate Chocolate cake pops, the Lemon Raspberry cupcakes, and the Snickers cupcakes. If you decide at any time that you would like to donate, you can find a link in the right column on our home page or at the bottom of all of our posts.
Thanks again to everyone at Horizon Church, and thank you to all our readers for your support!

We are working to help end childhood hunger!
Together we can make a difference!
What a great idea. I’ve been thinking about doing a local bakesale for this org! DId you do some of the baking?
Hi Miss Zoe! You definitely should! We had a great time! For our local bake sale I baked chocolate cake pops and Snickers cupcakes, Jenn baked Lemon Raspberry cupcakes (with a raspberry filling… so good!), and Elisa baked blondies (also VERY good!). We’ll be posting some of our recipe reviews this week. 🙂
Oooh I’ll have to try some of those out!
WOW! That’s great. Glad to hear you did so well. I’ll share this on my FB page and see if we can’t get you guys some more money for the cause. Those cupcake flavors sounded soo yummy and your prices were great. Good luck in reaching your goal 🙂
Thanks Tiffany! That would be AWESOME!!!!
