Where to Support Bakers Against Racism

This week marks a national effort across the globe to fight racism using the humble tools of butter, sugar and flour. Bakers Against Racism is a "worldwide virtual bake sale" that invites bakers everywhere to join together, sell sweets, and raise money for their organization of choice to support the Black Lives Matter movement.

Who's invited? Everyone who wants to see radical change against systemic and structural racism. If that sounds good to you, check out the local offerings from Houston bakers below. Note that all orders will need to be picked up on Saturday, June 20, though you can place preorders all this week in most cases.

One Fifth: This Underbelly Hospitality tasting pack is a dream, composed of five of their most popular desserts: a ca phe sua da carrot cake "fried pie," a mini Georgia James apple pie, a birthday cake push-pop, a black lime pie bar and a rainbow cookie sandwich. Each box can be pre-ordered for $40 and all proceeds will go toward Pure Justice Houston. To pre-order, visit the One Fifth curbside pickup link, make sure to set your pickup date for Saturday, June 20, and select the Bakers Against Racism charity box from the drop down menu!

Honeychild's Sweet Creams: In a seasonally appropriate twist, the lovely Honeychild's Sweet Creams is offering a tasting box of ice cream sandwiches for $30.

Koffeteria: This new EaDo bakery, helmed by Top Chef contestant Vanarin Kuch, is offering a trio of profiteroles in conjunction with Bakers Against Racism. The B.M.O profiteroles ("Break Me Off") are three different colors—signifying, per the Koffeteria Instagram, "although we may look different on the outside we are all filled the same" (in this case, with a delightful pastry cream). All proceeds from profiterole sales go toward the Houston chapter of Black Lives Matter — order online or in person and pick up Wednesday through Saturday, June 20. Use this as an excuse to go try their lemon meringue taco, pistachio baklava croissant, or their Salty Cambodian latte made with condensed milk and housemade sourdough butter.
