L.A. Bake Sale…



What a weekend!  I had the opportunity of joining a fabulous group of L.A. Food Bloggers for the National Food Bloggers Bake Sale to raise money for the Share our Strength Foundation.  Gabi Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking did an incredible job of putting this all together, the girl is amazing.  We were set up in swanky Hollywood at Morel’s French Steakhouse and Bistro at the Grove.  Gorgeous upstairs patio location. Bloggers and culinary professionals from around LA brought the most beautiful baked goods I have ever seen.  L.A. raised over $2400 for the SOS Foundation!  Take a peek at our day and all the AMAZING treats!!

By 11:00am Rachael and I realized we both hadn’t had breakfast, what better place to grab a bit to eat than at Morels?! Jen joined us too.  YUM, this place was incredible.  Our dishes were so pretty that we took photos!!  Mine was the quiche….fabulous!

    I just have a question…in the pic where the cupcakes are on the cupcake stand, is that spoons attached to small plates or what? That is the cutest thing! We had a bake sale at my church this weekend and I try to bag my stuff up where it is pleasing to the eye….I would love to see more of this kind of stuff…cute ideas! Thanks
