GIVEAWAY CLOSED…THANK YOU TO ALL WHO ENTERED
Breast Cancer touches lives everyday, every minute…finding a cure is vital.
Susan G. Komen for the Cure has played a major role in the fight against Breast Cancer. To see all the great work they do or for more information, please visit their website, they have a wealth of information!
During my recent visit to New York City for The Family Dish, I was sitting next to Liz, one of awesome gals at Weber Shandwick, and she mentioned how Hanes has joined the fight against Breast Cancer and donated $500,000. They have a fun new feature, where you can design and buy your own T-shirt and they will donate 10% of the proceeds to Komen for the Cure!!
Right away, I told her that I would love to create some Breast Cancer Awareness Cupcakes to share with you all! And she graciously offered some Hane’s goodies for a Giveaway!
First…let’s talk Cupcakes…PINK Cupcakes!!
For these very special Breast Cancer Awareness Cupcakes, I started with a strawberry cake mix, baked in cute pink polka-dot liners and frosted with Buttercream Frosting.
On top, I added some pink cookie wafer, pink sugar, pink non-pareils and some fun marshmallows.
It seems like Mini is ALL the rage now in Cupcakes…and even fun Cupcake Skewers! I just couldn’t help myself, and created these for you!!
To create the Mini-Cupcakes, I took a regular size cupcake, after it cooled and used a round cookie cutter, the inside part of a round cutter that has the removeable cutter for doughnuts. You could also bake mini cupcakes and remove the wrapper, or bake them without a liner.
Remember the Chocolate Covered Strawberry S’Mores with strawberry marshmallows? I used some of those marshmallows, dipped them in Wilton white candy melts and then added non-pareils on some and pink sugar on others.
Taking a lollipop stick, I just skewered the marshmallows and mini cupcakes. Then with a decorator bag filled with Buttercream frosting and fitted with a round tip, I added a little frosting and a few non-pariels.
My oldest son, who is 19, told me they look “magical!” 🙂
