One of the auctions was 5 cakes that were to be auctioned off. One of the cakes held a "Winner" tag for a heart shaped diamond necklace.
The cakes were all different flavors.... Decadent Chocolate, Coconut Cream, Chantilly, Strawberry and Carrot cake.
My husband bid on one of the cakes. He had the winning bid of $275.00
Needless to say, we didn't win, however the money was well spent to raise money for the S.P.C.A.
It was the most expensive dessert we have ever had.They were very clever hiding the winner tag under the cake.
If you didn't win, you got the tag that said, "Sorry, you didn't win, but enjoy the cake.
Our cake was Strawberry cream and it was delicious!
It got a little smashed by the time we got it home.
Another couple at our table bid on the Coconut cream cake and actually won the necklace.
I should taken photos of these beautiful cakes.
We were very happy to attend this event and donate.
More dogs and cats will be saved and get the medical attention they need.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your week.
