  • Alright, I’m a terrible blogger!

    But I’m back with some exciting news. This Sunday (Dec. 13), I’ll be participating in a #FoodieMeet Bake Off to raise money and awareness for The Stop Community Food Centre.

    Here’s a bit more info from the FoodieMeet website:

    The Stop started off as one of Canada’s first food banks but has since grown to offer an fantastic lineup of programs: drop-in meals, community gardens, pre and post-natal nutrition support, farmers markets, sustainable food education, civic engagement and many other valuable initiatives.

    FoodieMeet started out on Twitter as a one-off meetup for foodies but has developed into a regular food/drink event for local food lovers and is organized by Andrea Chiu and Suresh Doss

    Tickets to the event are $25 each and with your ticket, you will be given four tasting tickets, each redeemable for one baked treat and a voting ballot to help us determine the best baked goods. Additional tickets will be available for purchase at $2/each. All the proceeds are going towards The Stop.

    The line up of baked goods for the evening was just posted this afternoon & looks fabulous! I’m thrilled to be amongst such incredible bakers, some of who I’ve admired from afar via Twitter for a while now (like Kristin Peres of Cake or Death)! I’m excited to finally have the chance to meet a lot of the lovely Twitter friends I’ve made face to face.

    The theme is Escape from Toronto and I am re-creating a recent design I did for a wedding that was fun and most definitely appropriate for the theme.

    If you are in the Toronto area and are looking to support a good cause, come out on Sunday!
