Here's a Give-Back Way to Enjoy National Dessert Day

"America's Sweetest," a fundraising bake sale, is supporting the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation on Oct. 14.

America's Sweetest

What to Know

  • Oct. 14
  • Pick up your goodies at the Beverly Center or order through DoorDash
  • Eva Longoria, John Stamos, and other actors have partnered with LA dessert pros to create special desserts

Every day, it may often and be accurately stated, is a day when we can celebrate the sweets we're sweet upon.

But not every day is National Dessert Day. That only comes but once a year, in the middle of October, on the 14th frosting-covered, crumb-delightful day of the month.

Bakeries, ice cream parlors, cupcakeries, and pie places will honor the occasion in their own ways, with special, one-day-only treats and, if you're lucky, a deal or two.

But if you want to enjoy your sweet while doing something sweet, you'll want to order your Oct. 14 goodie through a pop-up, super-celebrity-fied bake sale.

America's Sweetest isn't only about moving cookies, though. It's a charitable bake sale, a flavorful fundraiser that will benefit the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation.

A number of actors, including Eva Longoria, Courteney Cox, and John Stamos, helped create confections by working with local pastry pros and queens/kings of the cupcake.

How to snag these celebrity-helmed give-back goodies? By ordering a box, then picking up your luscious snacks at the Beverly Center.

What will you head home with? Oh yum: "Each collaborative creation will be featured in the America’s Sweetest box, a collection of delicious desserts from LA’s familiar faces and favorite places."

But if you're not in the mid-city neck o' the woods on Oct. 14, no worries: You can also order through DoorDash.

Valerie's Confections, Porto's Bakery & Cafe, and a few other SoCal treateries are behind the temptation-filled box.
