Cookies and bars and tequila strawberry cheesecake, oh my!

oatmeal chip cookiesRalph Waldo Emerson said that nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm. So, the only logical conclusion is that our upcoming bake sale is going to be fantastic because we’re all so excited about it! We just wanted to give you a quick update about the goodies you’ll find when you come to see The Red Velvet Cake War – opening night is less than two weeks away. Of course, you can’t have a bake sale without cookies or cupcakes, and we wouldn't be able to call ourselves a Minnesota theater if we weren't going to have bars. You can also expect to find cake and pie, and Education Director Cassandra is planning a tequila strawberry cheesecake which she says is crazy-popular at parties.pumpkin bread

Bailey, our marketing associate, will bring in pumpkin bread made from her grandmother’s recipe. She says, “The recipe has been passed all around the family, and we all keep making it for each other as a holiday gift. It’s really become a joke at this point, but it’s so delicious that nobody is complaining!”crazy brownies

Our Technical Director Karen has promised to bring Crazy Brownies, which she described as “chocolate chip cookie dough as a base, layered with Oreo cookies and topped with brownie mix.” She says the recipe wasn't learned from her family, but we’re pretty sure it sounds like an instant family favorite. All in all, you can consider your diet ruined, folks.

There is still time to sign up if you'd like to lend your baking talents to the cause. Contact Sharon at 763-233-0802 or sharon@lyricarts.org for more information.

The bake sale will begin opening night of The Red Velvet Cake War, and will be open during intermission and after the show until we run out of goods. If you don’t have opening weekend tickets, get them now and you’ll be entered to win a cake from local café Truffles and Tortes!
