World's First (?) Virtual Bake Sale!

Today, in 102 degree heat my transmission went out in my car on my way to work. This is unfortunate because of many things. Namely because I do not have the money to buy a car at the moment. This means 12 hour days of driving Andrew to work, then driving home or wasting time near work (we work 1/2 hr away from where we live!) until my shift starts, then working 8 hours, then waiting for Andrew to pick me up. Gross!

Someone suggested doing a fundraiser, I am going to do one better. I present to you the world's first VIRTUAL BAKE SALE!

Here's how it works: You make a donation with the Paypal link in the upper left corner of my home page, then send an email to me at roseandthecity@yahoo.com. In return, (once I verify the donation) you get a picture of something awesome and delicious that I have baked. I may even include a copy of the recipe I used if you are interested. It may be a delicious baked good, or a yummy meal. Regardless, you get a delicious picture and a recipe, and I get a little closer to a gallon of gas. Maybe I will raise enough to buy myself a bicycle to pedal my ass to work in this 100 degree 100% humidity hell. You may donate as many times as you wish, and feel free to spread the word and annoy the crap out of your friends. Or just let them laugh at my desperation. Whatever works.

And for those of you who are not into provocative photos of pastries, let's not forget that there's always the awesome Rose And The City Merch for every occasion!

  1. That is funny Rose! Can I send virtual money? I recently a similar catastrophe, put me deep in the whole, actually had to buy the new used car.

  2. AWESOME!!!! You rock! LOL

    PS - Let me know if this works. I need to raise cash for my road trip. ;)

  3. Bahaha! Glad you like it. I would probably crap myself if anyone actually donated, and then after I cleaned myself up, I would hug them. Virtually of course. :)

  4. This sounds like what I need. I'm determined to lose some weight and this could be the answer. You are as wise as you are beautiful!

  5. Thank you Melody, you are too sweet!
