Calling all lovers of baked goods!

Tempting baked goods!

Sometimes, world domination is best achieved through a bake sale. Every year, WisCon does just that — holding a Saturday bake sale to support the James Tiptree Jr. Literary Award.

To pull off this delicious fundraiser, we need your help. We are looking for donations of baked goods, preferably home-baked instead of store-bought. We need folks who can contribute a single batch or pan of their favorite dessert. Bakers should provide a list of ingredients in their contributions so that friends with dietary restrictions can choose wisely.

We’re also looking for volunteers to staff the bake sale as counter help for 1-hour shifts from 11am to 4pm on Saturday. Don’t forget that working a shift in the bake sale counts toward the six hours needed for your volunteer rebate!

If you have questions about bringing some baked goods for the sale, or if you’d like to volunteer as counter help, email bakesale@wiscon.net

(Your convention can hold a Tiptree bake sale, too! Details are on the Tiptree site.)

Bake Sale for Tiptree

“World Domination through Bake Sales!” That’s one of the slogans at Tiptree Juggernaut Headquarters — aka, the James Tiptree, Jr. Literary Award. The Tiptree Award supports gender-bending SF/F, hosts auctions, and loves chocolate chip cookies!

Every year, WisCon hosts a bake sale to support and raise money for the Tiptree Award.  A wide variety of cookies, breads, cakes, pies and delectables are baked and donated by Tiptree supporters. If you’d like to prepare some baked goods or other treats for the bake sale, please send a message to the email address at the top of this page and we’ll tell you where to bring your goodies.

Baked goods can be purchased by-the-plate at the Tiptree Bake Sale on Saturday afternoon. All proceeds are donated to the Tiptree Award. Yum!
