One Cause, Seven Hours, A Thousand Sweets…

Hundreds of supporters.

So many faces of the best of friends and family.


3 weeks of planning. 6 days of prepping. Over 40 hours of baking. 3 late nights. 2 early mornings. (at least) 20 sinks of dishes. 2 kitchen aid stand mixers. 3 different kitchens. 1 set of Aunt Tita’s helping hands.

A 25 pound bag of flour. 25 pounds of butter. 5 pound of cream cheese. 4 dozen eggs. 18 pounds of white sugar. 3 bags of powdered sugar. 8 bags of brown sugar. 9 pounds of cheddar cheese. 5 bags of chips. 4 batches of icing…. 

30 yards of ribbon. 30 dollars of packaging supplies…

5 trips to the grocery store. 3 difficult trips to Walmart. 1 trip to Michael’s craft store.

A Do It Myself, hot pink lipstick card stock flag sign…

4 hand drawn facts.

One sign that tells it all. 

Not a moment of panic. Not a second of feeling unprepared. No doubt in my mind that I could do what I had set out to do.

and finally…


all for the kids..

THANK YOU from the bottom of my heart. I thank you. Strength.Org thanks you. 

…. It was a day beyond anything I could have imagined. 

If you tried my sweets, leave a comment and tell me what your favorites were. 

…and stay tuned this week for recipe reveals and more pictures.

  3. Unbelievable – The goldfish were my favorite. SO. GOOD. AND salty AND perfect. Yum I’d say I want more but gosh darn those would be a dangerous snack to keep around 😉
