. Yep, you read it right! I'm participating in my very first blogging activity: an online bake sale! The second annual Online Bake Sale is hosted by Steph from Bite by Bite, and all proceeds go to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society to find a cure for a variety of blood diseases that effect so many people. Great idea, huh?!
So how exactly does an online bake sale work? Don't be ashamed, I had no clue how this all went down either. I even had to [embarrassingly enough] ask Steph about what I was potentially getting myself into. But once she laid it out, it all made sense. And it's actually quite simple.
Okay, so the bake sale is on May 13 (this Friday, for those of you losing track of the days!). Steph will have a post of all of the participating bloggers along with their donated baked goodies. The bidders then place their bids (sorry for the repeat, couldn't think of another word...) on the dessert(s) they want and at the end of the day, the person with the highest bid wins the treat! Steph will then let the blogger know who won their goodie and the blogger will ship the treat to the winner.
Not too difficult, right?
So to all of the readers out there, join Steph, myself and fellow bloggers in the second annual Online Bake Sale! It should be really fun and I know Steph's first Online Bake Sale was an absolute hit! C'mon, take a chance ☺
I guess I should probably let you in on what you can see at the bake sale from me, huh? Well, I wanted to go with something a little unique, a treat with a little twist. And the Candied Bacon Chocolate Chip Cookies seemed to fit the bill!
|Nom, nom, nom. Addicting!|
Remember these little round wonders? I know these had to have sparked your interest a little, it's not really a typical ingredient that you'd think to put in a cookie. Well at least I wouldn't. But now you have the opportunity to have these delectable cookies shipped right to your front door: skip all the mess, skip all the clean up. Simply bid, receive, and enjoy. It's that easy!

So please, please, please, at least take a look at the bake sale on Steph's site this coming Friday, May 13. The worst that could happen? You have to wait a few days to get some fantastic baked goodies from extremely talented bloggers. Not much downside, if I do say so myself. Also, Steph is hoping to have a pre-bake sale post on Wednesday, May 11, so bidders can view the donated items that will be available.

Can't wait to 'see' you there!
