Fourth Annual Worldwide Vegan Bake Sale Promises Sweet Tooth Satisfaction
by Bonnie Goodman
Even non-bakers suffer from the misconception that baked goods require a chicken’s eggs, a cow’s breast milk, and animal-based butter.
The fact is, animal’s reproductive secretions are not at all required to create decadent and delicious baked goods! Binding, richness, and leavening can all be better accomplished with healthful, cruelty-free, plant-based ingredients.
This spring, participants on six continents will hold bake sales, raising money for a variety of causes and introducing the public to the diversity and deliciousness of vegan cupcakes, cookies, brownies, and other baked goods. These bake sales will “raise dough” and raise consciousness about the cruel practices- such as stealing baby calves from their mothers and grinding up live newborn male chicks - that are standard throughout the dairy and egg
The bake sale in Livingston will take place on Friday, April 25th, at Mordam Art (109 South Main Street) from 10am -6pm. Bozeman’s Bake Sale will be held from 10am - 1pm during the Gallatin Earth Celebration Sustainability Fair at “Bozeman’s Clean Up Day” at Bogert Park on Saturday, April 26th.
Everything sold will be 100% plant-based. There will also be many gluten-free, organic, and raw items! All proceeds will go to Live and Let Livingston, to maintain their growing lending library, educational resources, and monthly potlucks.
Bakers are welcome! Bakers are needed! Anyone, (not just vegans), can join.
