GiGi's Playhouse - Madison Grand OpeningMonday, May 16, 2016
Thinking back on it, this past weekend was nearly identical to a year ago, as I was lucky enough to bake a couple hundred mini-desserts for a friend of mine. As many of you might recall, last May was the month of Ben and Codie's wedding, where I baked over 300 desserts (four different types) for a dessert bar, as well as a three-tiered wedding cake. This year, I again baked just over 300 mini-desserts (three different types); but rather than it being for a wedding it will serve as a donation for GiGi's Playhouse, which is a new facility in Madison where Codie will be the site coordinator.
For those not familiar, GiGi's Playhouse is a nationwide center that has "[provided] educational and therapeutic programs at no charge" to children and adults with Down syndrome since 2003. Yup, you heard that right; through countless volunteers and donations, GiGi's Playhouse is able to provide 100% of its services free of charge!
