Sugar Rushed: Spark Philadelphia

March 23, 2015

Pastry for a Great Cause

This Monday I had a wonderful opportunity to be a vendor at the 2nd Annual Sugar Rush: A fundraiser to benefit Spark Philadelphia. As much as I make fun of parents and their offspring, I do want to help kids succeed. Since I have little patience for young humans, I am happy to do what I can otherwise.

I figured the other vendors would present the latest trends of desserts such as cupcakes and macaroons. I wanted to give something I’m really proud of: mini pies.

Considering that I am an army of one, I decided to forgo sleep and work non stop on 4 types of pies.

More and one person took several and I can’t blame them.

Mini Hand Pies are much better than Pop Tarts.

I love my sign so much.

I may be exhausted, but I made people happy with sugar and carbs. That’s all I need.
