Dallas City Center director Kevin Caskey probably did an extra spin class yesterday evening. I mean, how else could he stay in such great shape after an event like the East Dallas MLS “Cake Wars for TREPAC” yesterday?
The auction, which benefited the Texas Real Estate Political Action Committee that focuses on protecting homeowners’ rights, featured some really amazing (and delicious!) treats from several brokerages in the area. It all started with the men of East Dallas MLS baked the treats and the ladies bought them up for a good cause.
But this year’s confections show that it takes a professional touch to rake in the big bids.
“I have been involved since we restarted the tradition of a bake sale and have had the honor of performing the auctioneer duties the past two years,” Caskey said. “This was the fourth annual Broker Bake Off. And while Dallas City Center won the Golden Spoon trophy the first year in 2013, and Ebby took the spoon in 2014 and 2015.”
We still don’t know who won this year’s top trophy, as votes are still being tallied from yesterday’s well-attended event. Several brokerages brought their A game, with a ukulele-playing BB-8 cake from the Lakewood/Lake Highlands Ebby office, a very boozy submission from Alan Smith, a Millennium Falcon from Nathan Grace Real Estate, a huge R2-D2 from Dave Perry-Miller, and a Death Star from Briggs Freeman Sotheby’s International Realty. As a huge Star Wars nerd,
my little geek heart sings!
“The theme was ‘Cake Wars,’ and the battle for top broker cake was fierce,” Caskey added. “Other auction items ranged from a signed Roger Staubach football to liquor themed culinary creations. It was topped off with a cookie pull for those adventurous enough to take a chance.”
With these amazing creations, we can’t wait to see what East Dallas brokers cook up next year!
