More dessert auction pictures

You can read yesterday’s post for more background on this dessert auction.

Here’s a few more pictures.

As you walked in you were greeted by this table loaded with 24 unbelievable desserts.

The checkerboard cake you see in the front raised $230.  The Toffee Trifle in the bottom right corner brought in $350.  The Scarlet Strawberry Pie in the top left corner went for $350 as well.

How cute are these Tuxedo Strawberries? 
They raised $175 and were delicious.  How do I know that?  The table that won the bid was willing to share.Smile

Check out this fun little lady bug that sold for $110.
Case-IH fans paid $230 for this cute cake. How fun would this be for a little boys birthday cake?  The tires were made out of donuts!  The things people think of.
This cake was called “Nuts about Music”.  It was loaded with toasted macadamia nuts raising $300.
This coconut cake looked so elegant.  Sometimes simplicity is best, isn’t it?  to the tune of $260.

I thought these parfaits were a wonderful idea.  There were 8 different ones sure to suit all the unique tastes at your table. $675
Isn’t this present pretty?  It was a chocolate chiffon cake wrapped in marshmallow fondant. $260
This one amazed me the most though.  It was a French chocolate and vanilla layered cheesecake topped with a tower made completely from white chocolate.  Amazing!  $360.
I didn’t hear a grand total for the evening but am guessing the ministry came out pretty well plus we all had a blast in the process.  That’s the sign of a great fundraiser. 

I hope you enjoyed the pictures and I didn’t make you too hungry. 

I think I’ll go eat some sugar now!


  1. WOW! Some of those bakers are very creative. I like the parfait idea. I've never worked with fondant. Might have to give that a try. Thanks so much for sharing. Have a fabulous day and week. Blessings, SusanD

  2. What a fun idea! I am loving that Eiffel Tower...some people are so creative!

  3. That Case tractor reminded me of Lance's groom's cake. It was a John Deere tractor, and the front tires were donuts, back tires were bagels. You can see a picture of it on this blog post:
