We'll always love cupcakes, but the new "black" in bakery goods is the artisian donut! We here at LOL/OMG always like to be ahead of the trend, which is why we implore you to check out (and support) the fundraising efforts of The Donut Cooperative.
The brainchild of Dawn Lee and Laura Kennedy, The Donut Cooperative is in the process of trying to raise moola to open their shop, which will sell freshly fried dough in all sorts of fancy formats (even vegan!) using only the best local, natural ingredients from small farmers and suppliers. The eco-friendly endeavor will also include bicycle delivery service and will provide a fair, 'better than living-' wage to its workers AND devote a portion of profits to community activism. And who can argue with that?
Check out the Cooperative's Facebook Page or pledge a few bucks to their Kickstart fund. The promise of fancy donuts in the future is totally worth it.
