United Way Sale-a-bration

Our dear friend Lisa who works for Region of Peel invited us to participate in their annual "Sale-a-bration" which is a wonderful showing of beautiful crafts, goodies and the likes from local vendors put together to raise money for the United Way which was held on December 1st from 10am to 3pm at 10 Peel Centre Dr.  Lisa is one of the people who put this event together and we were thrilled to be a part of it this year.  Not only did we make wonderful new friends we were able to buy some great gifts for Christmas, support local vendors and the "United Way" which help many.
As MaryMel Cakes we provided a taste of what MaryMel is all about. Since we couldn't very well make cakes for the showing we brought our wonderful flavours through cup cakes and our decorated sugar/shortbread Christmas cookies and we displayed pictures of our cakes for everyone to browse through.  Here's a look at a few of our goodies made for the event;

our melting snowman
and of course the pic was taken before
we actually finished him, he's missing
the holly on his hat, hehe

Can't forget Santa (though pic was taken before Mel finished his belt)
his gold belt buckle is missing, oh well

Our cookies were a mix of sugar cookies and shortbread cookies all were decorated with fondant, cookie and cake sprinkles, luster dust etc.  Unfortunately mostly everyone did not get a chance to see our "melting snowmen" and "star Santa" cookies as a very nice lady came in just before 10am and bought all of our "melting snowmen" and "star Santa's" and a few more of our other designs which included "snowflakes, trees, stockings, wreaths, bells and ornaments". Thank you!!!

Here's a look at a few of the cupcakes. We made 7 flavours to choose from, a little something for everyone and of course everything we make is "NUT FREE";

Chocolate Guinness / Bailey's cream frosting
Red Velvet / cream cheese frosting
Carrot / cream cheese frosting
Pumpkin Apple Spice / Carmel butter cream frosting
Vanilla / chocolate fudge butter cream frosting
Chocolate Vegan / Oreo vegan butter cream frosting
Raspberry orange gluten free / with orange butter cream frosting

 The day went well and we received great feedback on our cupcakes and cookies. Sold out of our chocolate Guinness and red velvet and went home with very little left.  It was a wonderful day and great experience for us.  Thank you Lisa for inviting us to participate and you can surely count us in for next year!
