Bake sale for earthquake victims

Today is the big day! The day of the bake sale to help earthquake victims in Japan. We are making food to give food. We are "raising dough"! Thanks to the amazing work done by The Tomato Tart, with the contribution of over 90 food bloggers from around the world, you can bid on your favorite dessert and if possible, the goods will be shipped to you. Andrew Sigal from The Uncarved Block will be matching the first US$500 of this fundraiser!

I am honored to participate in this bake sale with my Chocolate Ganache Tart with a hazelnut crust and chocolate glaze. Go on, click on the link above for The Tomato Tart and pull out your fork. For every bite you take you will be giving one to someone living on rations sometimes as small as one banana, one orange and a cup of water per day. You can help just by reading this and spreading the word. Tweet, post on Facebook, put the badge on your blog! Let's make a difference.

Thank you!
