Make sure you get the word out about when, where and what it's for. I know some local radio stations will do free PSA's, so if it's for a certain benefit you may be able to get some free advertising. I would also make sure that people who have favorite's be able to request something in particular. For instance, everyone loves my mom's red velvet cake, so when we hold a bake sale for church, we get people who specifially request it. She will bake extras knowing that they will sell well, and if we have a item that is limited, but we know a lot of people want, we will do like a cake walk or a raffle for it. That way you make more money off of it, and people normally don't mind buying a ticket for $1 knowing it's going to a good cause anyway.
