Chinese New Year Cookies Bake Sale 2014: Thank you for your support!

Today is the first day of Lunar New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!

I would like to thank everyone who has supported my CNY bake sale. This year, I have made a total of 26 containers of pineapple tarts and German cookies. Thank you Mary, Jesslyn, Jessie, Nan Lau, Marissa, Jamie, Fen Fen and Meifeng for buying my homemade CNY cookies. I hope you all like the cookies. I'm also sorry that I had to reject some orders. Hope there will be a bake sale next year.

In addition, I also received a last minute order from my blog reader Meek. This is my first chiffon cake order! Thanks for giving me confidence in my chiffon cakes. I decided to include this in my bake sale as well.

This year, I did not indicate how much to donate (unlike last year, I donated $1 for each container sold). Instead, I will donate a sum of $50 to "Make-A-Wish Foundation® (Singapore) Ltd" which helps make wishes come true for children with life-threatening medical conditions and bring them hope, strength and joy. Thank you Mary Ng for donating an extra $14 in addition to the cookies bought and support my bake sale for the second time!

So on the first day of the Chinese New Year, I contributed $50 in the name of "Small Small Baker" through charity donation portal. Although it is only a very small amount, it's the heart that counts. Hope everyone can start doing more for the less fortunate.

I wish everyone a Horse-picious Year!
May all be safe and healthy!!
