Why Garage Sales Are Awesome

I saw on my friend (and blog reader) Michelle's Facebook page last week that she was planning a garage sale to raise money to sink a well in India. It just happened to coincide with our weekend in Christchurch. She also coincidentally lives just around the corner from Mr Cake's parents' place, where we were staying - so bright and early on Saturday morning we took a stroll.

She was also asking questions about my chocolate surprise cupcakes last week... Guess what else she was selling in her garage sale? ;-)

Needless to say, I had to have some, strictly for research purposes (well, it was almost morning tea time!). Nice work, Michelle, they were super tasty - they all vanished very quickly (I did share, I promise), the cake was lovely and moist and the icing was sugary delicious. I hope you raised lots for your good cause!


  1. woo hoo! I'm famous!!

    We raised nearly $400, which is awesome. And almost singlehandedly due to you and the Mother of Mr Cake (does that make her an Old Cake? or a pre-cake? Or a oh-my-gosh-i-gave-birth-to-a-cake?)

    I'm glad you liked them :) One upside to non-midget cupcakes is that they needed more icing to cover all that extra surface area... ;)

  2. That is awesome! Nice work - how much does a well cost these days? I'm sure my $2.50 doesn't do all that much... ;-p

  3. yeah, you might be right there :D A well is about $3500, of which I'm trying to raise half...

  4. Eep, a few more cupcakes till you hit the mark, then. What are your other fundraising schemes?
