Back to School Bake Sale!

Back to School Bake Sale!

As many of you know, I’m applying to go back to school this fall! I’m so excited and really looking forward to it.  Every night I’ve been studying for the GMAT (hence the lack of cakes this month).  I take the GMAT on August 17 and I’m feeling confident I can do well.

What I am not so confident about is the cost of applying to business schools and lack of income for two years while in school.  To compensate for this and help me through this exciting time, I’m having a bake sale!!!

Here is how it works.  It is going to be an auction for some holiday cakes.  I know the holidays seem far away, but it is never too early to start planning!  What better way to make this year special than with a custom cake!  A description of what is being bid on is listed below.  I’ll update the price in the order I receive the bids.   To bid please leave a comment or send an e-mail (sweetiecakesandpies@gmail.com) with the following information:

1.  Name

2. E-mail address

3. What holiday cake you are bidding on

4. Price you are willing to pay

These are custom cakes, so I’ll do my best to create whatever your heart desires.  If you win a cake, we will have a session, either in person or over the phone, to design the perfect cake for you.

The auction will close on September 14, 2009 (my birthday) at midnight.  Payments must be received by October 1, 2009 or your cake will be given to the next bidder.  I can only take cash or check, but if this is going to be a problem just e-mail me and we can work something out like pay pal.

Sorry I can only deliver within a 100-mile radius of Ithaca, NY.

When we have our design session, we will discuss delivery and work out a time that best suits your needs on the day the cake will be delivered.  One week prior to deliver, I will confirm those details with you.

My goal in this auction is to raise enough money to cover my expenses while applying to business school and to create an amazing cake to make your holiday’s memorable.  Custom cakes from established bakeries usually start out around $1,000.  I hope that I provide you with this unique experience for much less while still reaching my goal.

Enough with the details! Time for the sweet stuff. 😉

    Terry, you are such a brave little soul. You bring tears to my eyes. We’ll try to help you by mid September. Ask Dan to help you bake, I know he will. (Remind him Santa is coming.) I wish we were there. God bless your efforts.
