SATURDAY was the second annual New Music Bake Sale held at the Irondale Center in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. I spent the day there, with David, manning the TRANSIT table which was selling "Savory Finger Foods" (by David) and "Cupcakes by Fabiana Duarte."
The daytime maître d' at my restaurant recently told me she wanted to start selling cupcakes at the Brooklyn Flea Market. She already had the recipe (pumpkin cupcakes with cream cheese frosting), she just needed to find out about how to get a table.
One night, while David was deciding upon the menu items for his 'savory finger foods' menu, Fabiana and her cupcakes instantly came to mind. "Maybe Fabiana would be interested in donating some cupcakes for the bake sale." I texted her to ask if she'd be interested and she instantly replied that she'd love to. So, Saturday morning, I was up at 8 a.m. and heading downtown, on the A train, to Queens.
I picked up two boxes of cupcakes from Fabiana: one pumpkin and one chocolate; and two containers of frosting, on the side.

I had a fun time at the New Music Bake Sale and towards the end, even received a complimentary cupcake from composer, Angélica Negrón, who clearly had the cutest table there.
