Posts Tagged ‘Breast Cancer Awareness’
This weekend a good friend of mine hosted her annual GNI (Girl’s Night In) to raise money for the Breast Cancer Foundation. Kim lost her mother to breast cancer when she was a young teenager. Kim’s mother was a lovely, lovely lady who was close to my heart aswell, she treated me like her own daughter. She is missed and thought of each and every day! Kim has always involved herself in fundraising events and has made the GNI an annual event. Kim not only aims to raise as much money as she can for such a deserving cause but also wants to educate and spread breast cancer awareness to help as many people as possible. She does a great job each year and her mum would be very proud of her efforts! I was unable to attend the GNI again this year so decided to donate some cupcakes to either be auctioned off or used in what ever way Kim thought best. I piped some pink ribbons, then made a batch of chocolate and white chocolate mud cupcakes, in pink cases of course! I topped the chocolate ones with white vanilla buttercream frosting and the white chocolate mud with pink strawberry buttercream frosting. Each cupcake was then topped with a pink ribbon and three gold cashous. I packaged them in boxes of six. I hope all the lovely ladies had a fabulous PINK day!!!
