Alex's Lemonade Stand at the Brooklyn Flea

On Saturday, Lemon-Slice and I went to the Brooklyn Flea to fundraise for Alex's Lemonade Stand. We certainly had lemonade, but we decided to come out armed with baked goodies to get more people to come over. We raised a few hundred!

I'd like to thank Eric Demby of the Brooklyn Flea for all of his help and support. The Brooklyn Flea was an excellent venue with a friendly crowd and high foot traffic. We gave out many cards with some information about Alex so they could go onto the website and learn more about her cause. I hope we raised some awareness.

Here's the cute banner Alex's Lemonade Stand provided us with.

I used my macaron skills and made Vanilla, Mosaic, and Salted Caramel.

Chocolate Chip cookies, Mini Pecan Pies, Thumbprint Cookies, Palmiers, Mini Apple Pies, Tiny Cheesecakes, and Butterscotch Pecan.

Blueberry Pies in front of the display on facts about Childhood Cancer.

Lemon-Slice wearing a cute yellow dress to match the mood.

There's also some snickerdoodles and florentine shortbreads.

Samples out front brought the crowds!

This Friday, lemon-slice will be having a bake sale at her lower school in the hopes to raise some more funds before we send in our check to Alex's Lemonade Stand.



  1. Where were you able to get the plastic tray for your macarons?! I've been looking everywhere for one like that!

  2. Your treats look wonderful. =)
