It's hard to believe that one week ago we were up to our elbows in flour, sugar, salt, yeast, butter and powdered sugar! We had set a goal of $500 and thanks to ALL OF YOU, the total amount collected was over $1100!!!! That's right... we more than doubled our hopeful donation amount.
In total, we made 76 Dozen cinnamon rolls!
You may ask yourself "What goes into 76 Dozen cinnamon rolls?" Here is our best calculation...
100 lbs of Lehi Roller Mill Turkey Flour (we only use the best!!!)
15 lbs of Sugar
2 lbs of Saf Instant Yeast
7 gallons of Water
2 cups of Liquid Soy Lecithin
2 large Cinnamon containers from Sam's Club
36 lbs of Powdered Sugar
12 lbs of Butter
2 cups of Vanilla
5 lbs of Cream Cheese
A WHOLE lot of LOVE!!
There were no major setbacks, no major mistakes (unless you tasted one). For being our FIRST (of many) cinnamon roll bake-offs, it was a pretty smooth trip! Thanks to all of you who purchased, picked up, referred, and helped donate to this great cause. My Aunt, with our fundraiser and others, has been able to raise over $10,000 to purchase the truck that is needed. She is currently shopping around in Zambia and other nearby countries to find the best one she can. And with more than $10,000, she will be able to buy the "Cadillac" of trucks that will last scores of years!
Thank You, Thank You, Thank You! For your willingness to serve and your patience in the process!
