    What a noble idea and so many participants. You must be thrilled. I can’t decide.

    Can we request a shipping date? I will be traveling and I want to make sure I am home and/or at work to receive them – depending on where I have them sent!

    • KeepItSweet June 28, 2011 at 8:54 pm #

      That should be fine! Once I get everyone’s information, the bidder/baker can coordinate.
