Satiate your sweet tooth on something other than Halloween candy this month – while also supporting a good cause. This year, Rhode Island joins the Boston-based Bakes for Breast Cancer initiative, partnering with businesses across the state to bake up something special for the cause. Now through October 25, participating eateries will donate all proceeds from one dessert or baked good on their menu to benefit breast cancer research. And it should come as no surprise that many of your fave local joints, included below, have gotten creative to whip up some tasty treats to raise funds!
Plant-based eaters can head downtown to Good Game Grill for diner-style vegan fried Oreos. Mill’s Tavern is putting their decadent Milk Chocolate Mousse – with devil's food cake, tahini pumpkin butter, and mandarin sorbet – toward the cause. For a savory option, Seven Stars Bakery is offering both salted and pumpkin seed soft pretzels from all locations. Red Stripe locations are baking up an apple cinnamon-topped cheesecake with graham cracker crumble, whipped cream, and caramel drizzle. For Paul Conforti, of Red Stripe and Mill’s Tavern, the cause is extra special – this year’s initiative is dedicated to his mother, a longtime breast cancer survivor.
Coast Guard House pulls out all the stops with their Beet and White Chocolate Panna Cotta and Merlot Chocolate Cake, decorated with flavorful garnishes, created by pastry chef Jamie Chernesky.
