You read that right. CAKE and WALK!!
It happened in Miinneapolis on Thursday night. Here's a rundown of what went on:
"James Beard Award nominee Michelle Gayer of the Salty Tart invites you to the Share Our Strength Minneapolis Cakewalk -- a night of drinks, dancing, and most importantly, delectable desserts from the best pastry chefs in the Twin Cities. The event is presented in partnership with James Beard Award winner and Share Our Strength Minneapolis chef chair Tim McKee of La Belle Vie. All ticket proceeds benefit Share Our Strength's efforts to end childhood hunger."
Brad and I are huge Top Chef fans and we always want to hit food tastings or food trucks, but it's not always possible out here in Albertville. We found out about this a good month ago and it seemed like a win-win. Cake? I love cake! CHECK! Charity? I love helping. CHECK. Cake + Charity + Feeding Kids= GOLD!
We paid extra for the Bourbon Room/Experience and some upstairs Sausage Hut. Brad liked the sausage- I'm a recent vegetarian so it did not look good to me. I'm not a bourbon drinker, but did find some that were good...Brad loves Bahama Mama's so bourbon drinking wasn't really his thing. But..all to charity and all fun.
I digress..To VERN!
More pics in a day or so. I have many photos of beautiful CAKES. They are definitely art forms and so beautiful! We also ate way too much cake, cake-like items, cupcakes, homemade popcorn..so much food. I knew I'd regret not eating enough as I did get full. Now when I think back I say to myself "You didn't try enough cake!"
Brad also had a stalker there. A woman alone in her 50's. She kept staring at us while we were seated at a table eating cakes. She came over and asked 'Can I take this please?" referring to his empty plate. We assumed she worked there, although she was walking around eating and wasn't doing anything a server would do. Later on I found her staring at him in the Bourbon Bar and realized..she was a cake eater like everyone else. A lover of cakes who had taken a shine to my hubby. Can't blame her. Still..it was odd. Sadly, no photos. I didn't want to be rude.
ALERT!! Gary Busey returns to TV tonight in that Donald Trump show..name escapes me! But we all know he's an "angel in an earth suit" or something to that effect.
Have a beautiful Sunday!
