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.
