The San Francisco Food Blogger Bake Sale 2012!

by Irvin on March 19, 2012 · 10 comments

It’s that time again! The San Francisco Food Blogger Bake Sale is here, and I’m joining forces with Anita Chu of Desserts First, Shauna Sever of Piece of Cake and Annelies of La Vie en Route to throw our third annual fundraising event. Last year’s event had us splitting up our bake sale into two different locations and raising over $2500 to help end childhood hunger. This year, we’re simplifying our event to just one location, in Pacific Heights at the awesome Kiehl’s store.

Organized by Gaby Dalkin of What’s Gaby Cooking this year’s bake sale is going rock. Collectively the 26 bake sales across the country last year raised more than $25,000. This year, we’re being challenged to raise twice as much. 100% of the Food Blogger Bake Sale proceeds go to Share our Strength, a national organization fighting childhood hunger in the United States.

Last year's bake sale was not only fantastic fun, but raised tons of money too!

If you live in the San Francisco Bay Area, please visit the SF Food Blogger Bake Sale website for more information, and to sign up to donate or volunteer. If you live outside the city, visit the Bloggers without Border’s site to see a full list of the cities and hosts. If you don’t see your city listed, consider hosting your own blogger bake sale by contacting Gaby from What’s Gaby Cooking.

Some of the baked goods I donated to the cause last year.

Hope to see some of you guys there! It’s going to be fantastic. If you’ve never been to the bake sale, feel free to bounce to my recap of last year’s sale. And if any of you have suggestions or requests for things I should bake for the event, leave a comment. I’m still trying to figure out what to make and I’m always open to suggestions…

Ooh I would so love to take part this year ! Went to the one the year before in San Jose and had baked some dairy and egg free / vegan treats that went really quickly so plan to do some of those since we seem to have many people who are dairy/egg free by choice or through allergies.

We definitely found that gluten free and vegan/allergen friendly treats were quite popular! If San Jose isn’t having a bake sale this year, I hope that you make it up to the San Francisco one.

I suggest lot’s of cake and dessert. Your packaging is attractive.

Irvin! I so wished I lived out in San Francisco. Recchuiti Chocolate and the Press Club would be the death of me!

Thank you for this post, Irvin! I know it’s coming down to the wire, but if it’s not too late I am totally going to rally Austin’s bakers to chip in. This cause is too important to pass up. :)

You totally should Jonathan! I don’t think there has been an Austin bake sale in the past couple of years (last year the only Texas bake sale was in Edinburg I think). It’s not only for a great cause, but it’s super fun. You get to hang out with food bloggers all day! Good luck.
