Charlotte VegFest. Wow! What a ride.
Kacie woke up to a house with no power, due to a rain storm, and about one thousand donuts to transfer to the event. By the grace and help and manpower of the Move That Dough team that day, we did it, though.
We set up a fan, plugged in to some power, and got to icing every type of donut we could, as fast as we could. When the five-minute warning happened, we felt good. We felt organized. We had some of each kind ready and waiting for the VegFest crowd
Well…that crowd was ready and waiting, too! I looked up to see a line of faces, and I couldn’t wait to serve every single one with something we prepared…or at least try to!
We had a great variety of our vegan donuts: fresh apple cinnamon, coffee cake, peanut butter chocolate, triple blueberry, and fresh strawberry, as well as double fudge and coco(nut) – which I love. We also had little hooty hoo cupcakes and barbecue jackfruit-filled ballers (bbq courtesy of chef Shawn Harrison of Tephra).
We can only imagine what our next experience will be like, with all the learning of this event under our belt.
We were so, so astounded by the whole team who put on Charlotte VegFest. And we couldn’t even BEGIN to describe how excited we were by our fellow vendors! A few of our special shout outs to our fellow vendors go to: Dreamy Leaf for their gluten-free, refined oil-free deliciousness; he Masa Casa for their life-saving tamales; Nourish on winning the mac and cheez competition; and to Greener Supply Co for providing compostables.
