Want Some Red Velvet Whoopie Pies?

Yesterday my stand mixer broke. I almost had a heart attack, then almost cried. Turns out it was only the pin that holds the head up came out, but I was unable to fix it. Good things for husbands. :)

Now I can make lots and lots more of these:

Don't they just look delicious? Let me assure you, they are.

Would you like to try some? You know you do!

Well, you're in luck! I have donated a dozen Red Velvet Whoopie Pies to Steph's Online Bake Sale over at Steph's Bite By Bite which will go to the highest bidder (bids start at $15)!

A bake sale? That's right! Steph is currently training for a marathon with The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society's Team in Training and is aiming to raise $1,900 for their cause.

So make sure you head over to Steph's Bite By Bite on Monday, January 31 to place a bid on these scrumptious morsels! Bidding is open 7am to 9pm EST.

Here's all the deets per Steph:
Online Bake Sale Rules and Logistics:

First off, please remember that all donations from this bake sale will go directly to my Team In Training efforts to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. You will be supporting a great cause and helping to make a huge difference in the lives of many.

On Monday, January 31st at 7am EST. I will post all of the items each baker has donated. Each item will have a minimum bid of $15. Once the items are officially posted all buyers will then e-mail with a bid of what they would like to purchase.

To have an official bid on an item you must e-mail me at any bids left in the comments section will not be reviewed, only bids e-mailed will be considered official and affirmative.

Think of the bid as a silent auction of sorts. All buyers will have until 9pm EST to submit their bid for the auction.

I will be updating the current bids at the bottom of the bake sale post throughout the day so that you can see the current high bid. I am hoping this will encourage others to bid higher for the items they really want or bid for items that have not had a bid yet.

All winners will be announced a few hours after the bake sale has closed

Each winner will then donate the specified amount to my TNT fundraising page. Once the donation goes through I will e-mail the baker the winner’s address and it will be the baker’s responsibility to send the baked goods to the winner within 72 hours.

The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that time frame the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for bid.
