    Pastry chefs from some of Washington’s finest restaurants and bakeries recently kneaded dough, whipped cream, deep-fried batter and iced concoctions for… dogs.

    Or more accurately, for animal welfare workers and the dogs they rescue. And they didn’t just throw together leftovers and beef bones, eithers. “Treats” included cake, French champagne and shiraz, and special pastries shaped like rabbits and hearts for the pups.

    Sugar and Champagne, as the fund-raising evening is called, was started by Ellen Gray, who runs Washington’s Equinox restaurant with her chef-husband Todd. She was inspired by a show about animal welfare police. “I was in tears by the end of the show and called the Humane Society to ask if I could do something to thank these people for the thankless task they do. They have such a dirty, mean and nasty job, and what’s the polar opposite of that? The luxury taste of sugar, champagne and fancy desserts.”
