Charity Bake Sales for the AEF/BCEF
During the month of November, everyone at the company I work for concentrates their efforts into raising money for the AEF/BCEF. What started as a simple penny drive several years ago is now a month of massive fund raising activities. This year, with a lot of help from many, many good souls, I coordinated a series of five, weekly bakesales to try and raise some additional cash for the good cause.
Here I am, on the stage, wearing pink to reflect our final bake sale theme, at the end of the grand spelling bee competition which represents the climax of our fund raising events, to announce the bake sale total. After five weeks of cooking and creating yummy things for our colleagues who, thankfully, spent a lot of money over the last month buying what we baked, I was happy to announce that we raised a stunning total of $1521.50, a small but important portion of the fabulous, record total of $21500+ raised during this year.
My contributions to the final Pink Bake Sale included:

Thomas Haas Chocolate Sparkle Cookies, with additional pink 'sparkles', (probably never the intention of Thomas Haas!). I made the cookies using extra tips kindly given to me by Clement from A la Cuisine.

These pretty pink marble meringues were made from a recipe in the eleventh issue of the Donna Hay magazine.
