Baked Goods

This Saturday brings us one of D.C.'s most enjoyable annual events, Scarlet's 37th Annual Bake Sale and Auction. If playing with the English language is funner than being grammatically proper -- and Hearsay can verily testify that it is -- the same is true for baking. Why just make a Devil's Food Cake when you can make a Devil's Food Cake in the shape of an actual, anatomically correct devil? And maybe even dress up as a devil while you're at it? And all for charity. 2005-02-17_540_9983.jpg

Co-organizer Patrick "Pudding Pop" Grady explains that in years passed winning entries have included those built around the themes of Wicked (of course) and Mommie Dearest (uh-huh). But what if you only shake, don't bake? No problem -- you don't have to bake a cake to rake in money for Pets DC and Food and Friends, this year's beneficiaries. In fact, you could paint a lovely piece of stained glass, or carve a nice piece of wood, or even just outfit a baby's bottle in a harness. That's right, your entry doesn't even have to be edible. Several hundred people are expected Saturday at 4 p.m. at the D.C. Eagle for the bake sale, held in honor of the late Neil Alexander. The sale will take place after a judged competion of some several dozen entries, all competing in four categories, including Best Individual Entry and Most Creative Entry. So get out those E-Z Bake Ovens and start your creative engines....
