Cakes for a Cause

Wednesday, March 24th, 2010

Well, hello there!  Long time no see – I have been a bit busy loving on our newest addition and getting ready for a little event called Cakes for a Cause!

Well, Abby is doing beautifully and Cakes for a Cause was last night and a HUGE success!  My dear friend Kasey and I co-planned and hosted the event at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank to benefit the Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s Operation Feed. We are so proud of how the event turned out – everyone had a great time and we raised a lot of money for a great cause!

We are still tallying the final donation but it looks like we raised $5000 or 10,000 meals!  Our original goal was to raise enough to provide every meal for a family of 4 for a year but we managed to raise enough to feed 9 people!  How cool is that?

Believe me when I say that Columbus has some seriously talented bakers and confectioners!  Here is a little sneak peek of the room and a few of the cakes – can’t wait to share more when we get them.

If you missed Cakes for a Cause 2010, trust me when I say that Cakes for a Cause 2011 is going to be even more sweet!

Ellie is loving being a big sister and has been a great helper for mommy and daddy.  So far, life with two little girls has been quite lovely!
