A Confectioner’s Dream

Share Our Strength starts a sweet new tradition, using frosting and cake to fight childhood hunger

Event: Share Our Strength, a national nonprofit that seeks to end childhood hunger in the United States, celebrated its inaugural Cakewalk event at Minneapolis’s Fine Line Music Café on March 1.

Delectable Delights: Guests gobbled down everything from Nutella-filled brioche doughnuts to bourbon cocktails sprinkled with bacon toffee.

The Cakewalk: Like musical chairs (only better).Winners of this tasty game walked away with one of the seven donated cakes.

Banish Hunger: The $25,000 raised will go toward Share Our Strength’s goal of ending childhood hunger by 2015.

See and Be Seen: Among the 300 guests were local personalities Jason DeRusha and Stephanie Hansen, as well as star chef Tim McKee, Seth Bixby Daughtery, and Michelle Gayer.
