Cupcakes Help Fight Cancer...

As you can see, it didn't take long for me to figure out how to employ my new Kitchen Aid mixer...
And, if you have been reading this blog for a while, you will notice that I have at last lifted the brutal cupcake ban imposed by yours truly back in January. Did I give in ? Or did I simply fall, willingly, right off the wagon and into a creamy vat of vanilla butter cream? (sounds good to me.)

The truth of the matter is that these cupcakes are a test run for the ones I will be donating to a fundraising bake sale to benefit The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. The event is being organized by friend and co-worker Ofer Ziv and is part of a larger fundraising goal that includes his participation in the 110 mile century ride to benefit blood Cancer. I certainly admire Ofer's dedication to this cause and am glad to be a participant in this event.

Want to help cure cancer yourself, but don't feel up to a 110 mile bike ride? That's alright! Come on down to the bake sale and treat yourself to a guilt-free cupcake. Fighting Cancer never tasted so good.

See you there.

So now the cupcakes were a "test run"? Yeah. I have a sneaking suspicion that the next batch will be an even more successful "test run", and that you will perhaps do many more "tests" of this kind, perfecting the recipe just in time to pull the ever-perfect batch number 24 out of the oven right before the bake sale! You need a giunea pig. Conflict of interest.

Oh, cupcakes are my weakness. It is so hard to look at such a lovely cupcake and not shove it in my mouth.
I am glad the ban is lifted as I have many nightmares about it.
