Bake Sale to Benefit Japan a Sweet Success

Dozens of talented bakers contributed to this delicious effort.
On Saturday, tables at Jessie Oleson's adorable Cakespy shop on Capitol Hill were heaped high with all sorts of goodies: cookies, cakes, outrageous brownies, cupcakes, and, oh, what's that? Almond brittle? YUM. Harvest Vine contributed bags filled with cinnamony rolls labeled "buns of love."

It was all part of a nationwide movement to hold bake sales, with the proceeds going to benefit survivors of the deadly earthquake and tsunami more than two weeks ago.

Cakespy Jessie Oleson helped organize a local bake sale for Japan.
The steady flow of sale-goers added up to big bucks. More than $2,000 was raised. Sweet! Let's make this a regular date, huh? Say, once a month? Because this is going to be a huge recovery effort!
