Austin Bakes for Japan Recap

AMAZING spread, eh?

On Saturday, Colby and I arrived at the Nomad Bar a little after 10 AM.  We brought about 30 homemade kolaches to sell and met several other Austin bloggers including Anna from Keep It Luce, Elizabeth from Local Savour, Rachelle from Blinded By the Bite, and Casey from The Modern Gelatina.  

My homage to Colby's deep east Texas Czech roots.
We donated some money and picked up some really amazing baked goods, including a gluten free brownie baked by Rachelle (that Colby *loved* and didn't even know was gluten free until I pointed to the bottom of the bag), cupcakes from Sugar Mama's, strawberry jelly from someone, and an incredible apple tart made by another mystery person.  In all, the event was a smashing success and the city wide bake sale raised ~$11,000 for Americare's humanitarian efforts in Japan.

Oh, and that apple tart was the bombdotcom.
