There was a bake sale at work today to raise money for the Race for the Cure. And like the good little baker I am, I knew I had to bring something in that was yummy and homemade. No offense to those that donate store bought goods to bakes sales, I just need to make it myself, if not I feel like I'd be cheating and the baking gods would flip their floury lids! I solicited my buddy Mari and we baked and baked for most of the evening! Not to sound snobby, but our cookies and cupcakes rocked, they were so pretty if I may say so myself! We're so proud of ourselves and we've gotten a ton of compliments all day. It's really satisfying that something we did for a good cause, can bring so much joy to the tummies of all of those that bought our cookies and cupcakes. I wanted to make them special and not just your boring everyday sweets, so the cookies are sugar cookies cut out with a "hope ribbon" cookie cutter and are covered in pink fondant. The cupcakes are vanilla & chocolate with a special "hope ribbon" fondant medallion on top of each of them. Like I said, they were the hit of the bake sale! :) It was lots of fun, it was messy, it was yummy and we'd definitely would do it again! Many thanks to Mari for helping me make these special goodies for such a great cause.
