Since October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, my work decided to have a "Ladies Night" and asked me to bake for the event!
I decided to whip up some Vanilla and White Chocolate Strawberry cupcakes, top with Vanilla Buttercream frosting, and then...a pink ribbon made out of a stretched out Starburst!
The hubs was in charge of making the ribbons while I made the frosting. He loves me.
I topped the Vanilla cupcakes with the ribbons and the White Chocolate Strawberry cupcakes and mini cupcakes with sparkly sugary sprinks!
The hot pink sprinks made these cupcakes look like snowballs, and I was ok with that.
You know...the snowballs.
They are right up there with Zebra Cakes if you ask me. Nom.
I must be honest with you. I am not a cupcake baker.
I leave that shiz to Sprinkles.
My specialties consist of anything oat-related. However, these turned out pretty darn delicious if I must say so myself. I also LOVED the crunch of the sprinkles, so yum.
I was a little weary on whether or not the Starbust ribbons would work like I had imagined they would, and after a few gentle tugs, they were surprisingly very cooperative! I would highly recommend them when trying to create a cuteness-overload experience :)
Happy Breast Cancer Awareness Month! I think we all know someone who had been affected by this, so make sure to let them know how much you love them and admire their bravery!
Get our there and LOVE ON PEOPLE!
