Kids Cake Auction

We hosted a kids cake auction at our local library this past year. We had so much fun. CG and SA picked the design of the cakes that they wanted. SA made a lego cake and CG a guinea pig cake.

Children in the community made cakes and bid on cakes. All proceeds went to the library.
