fresh fruits, chicken roll-ups...

My friends assembling sandwiches and roll ups: Lowena, Sela and Amy

Chocolate cupcakes with strawberry butter cream frosting

#199_Bake Sale

Today is Saturday, 28th of November. I better finish doing this entry and post it before it becomes too old as this has been sitting in the draft file for a few days. Sorry folks, I have been terribly busy these past few weeks that I had neglected this blog.

Well, the proceeds from my bake sale went to a friend in my home town of Dagupan City whose house was flooded by the typhoon Ondoy back in September. I didn't raise very much money from the bake sale but with the generous hearts of a couple of friends here in Salt Lake, Aida and Bobbi who had given me some cash money out of their own pockets I was able to send my friend in Dagupan a generous amount. Bless your hearts! I also appreciate those who supported my bake sale at the event. Thank you everyone!

the atcara was the #1 best seller. There were only 8 jars available, so they were gone fast....they were all gone within 30 minutes after I set up my table. I had to ask the customers to leave them on the table for a while after they had paid for it with their names on the jars, so my table won't look too bare. Others still said, can I buy this?! Too bad, I didn't make enough.

The polvorons were the #2 best seller. They were sold out within an hour.

the Ensaymadas were the #3 best seller along with the Crema de Frutas.

Most of the cupcakes and cookies were unsold.....
inisnab ng mga Pinoy ang dessert pang Americano.

The Bake Sale was a lot of work with low returns, but in a way it was fun specially when I saw people enjoying what I had to sell. It was all worth my efforts. Naalis ang aking pagod at ginanahan pa tuloy ako! Maraming salamat sa mga kababayan ko!!!

I hope there will be lots of kids to show up at the Luncheon
and Bake Sale so they can enjoy these cupcakes.

#196_Brazo de Mercedes with a Big Twist

Brazo de Mercedes turned into a pie!

I still need to come up with a good name for this dessert. It is kind of a heinz 57 thing where I put everything I love in one pie, i.e. mangoes, custard, coconut cream and meringue.

The idea is taken from Brazo de Mercedes, but instead of rolled, the meringue is baked in a pie tin then filled with custard cream filling, hence a Pie. The cream filling, click here, has coconut cream and home made mango jam, then mounded some shaved fresh mangoes on top. Sorry, I don't have time to write down the recipe right now. I'm making this for our Fundraising Event on Saturday.

#194_ Atcharang Papaya

Atcharang Papaya
to be sold at the fund raising

We're having a food bazaar/bake sale on Nov. 14th to raise funds to help some typhoon victims in my province of Pangasinan. Every night after I come home from work I will make an item or two or whatever I can do that night. I started with the Atcharang Papaya yesterday. Next on my list will be polvoron. I'll make them tomorrow.
