Toronto Bakes for Japan was a success!

Wow, thanks so much Toronto for coming out and supporting Toronto Bakes for Japan.  They raised over their $10,000 goal.  Toronto Bakes for Japan made over half of it on Saturday at Brickworks Farmers Market and the rest on Sunday at Liberty Noodle, The Rivoli, Cafe Diplomatico and Cafe Amaranto.

There was so many awesome baked goods, from butter tarts to brownies, savoury tarts and biscuits, cookies and of course cupcakes.

Here's a little round up of the goodies.

Little Purse cakes from Sweet Things TO

More Sweet Things TO

And More

Bunny Sugar Cookies

Savoury cookies from Fashion Food

Hundreds of Cupcakes from Shastacake

Hello Kitty sugar cookies from my new friend Sam

Gluten Free Macarons

Cake Pops from the  Cake Pop Shoppe

Sushi cake from Alice's Cakes
Tons of other great stuff, of course what I brought.  I made butter tarts, rocky road brownie cupcakes and Hello Kitty and Japan chocolate fudge cupcakes with buttercream icing.

Toronto Bakes for Japan - Only 4 days away!

I can't believe Toronto Bakes for Japan is coming up so quickly. This Sunday I will be at Liberty Noodle from 11 am to 3pm, please come by to help raise funds for Japan Earthquake Disaster Relief.  Not only will I be there with some butter tarts and chai latte cupcakes but, Juanita from Sweet Things TO and Jennifer from the Fashionista Foodie (plus many more) will have their goodies there for you to come buy for only a donation.  Some of Toronto's best bakers will be there and you can get their goodies for only a fraction of what you'd normally pay.  Deal!

Not only will there be baked goods but also raffle prizes and pieces of artwork to be auctioned off and some live music.  Let's make this a great bake sale! Please join us at any of the bake sale sites listed below.
