October is...


Every year when October comes around I get invited to participate in the Bath and Body Works team for the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. Toni, my best friend, heads up the team and works to solicit as many participants and donors as possible. This will be my third year participating with her team and the first year that I have more motivation than before. This year, my mother and two aunts were diagnosed with breast cancer. This year, the cause has become more important to me than ever.

On Fridays, my Aunt Carol orders two dozen cupcakes to share with her fellow chemo patients at the hospital. I decided to show my support by including some cupcakes with breast cancer awareness ribbons and some with pink frosting and pearl dragées. I love me some dragées!

Each one of these ladies is a fighter and they're all going through their personal battles against breast cancer with amazing strength and optimism. I know that they will all pull through and be better for what they had to overcome. I will be participating in the walk on November 1st. If you would like to donate towards my fund-raising goal, click here for my personal page.


  1. So sorry to hear about your mother and aunts. My thoughts are with you and your family.

  2. You are truly amazing!!! I love the cupcakes they are super cute. I bought a pink ribbon cookie cutter this weekend so I need to use it sometime.

    Well I will keep your families in the prayers!

  3. These cupcakes are cute! I was going to make pink ribbon cuppies for an event by beantownbaker, but had not enough time and simply dyed all the frosting pink.

  4. Nicole! I'm so admiring your new lay out! The breast cancer blog touched my heart. Please know my thoughts and prayers are with you your Mom, Aunt & Family. I forwarded your web page to a couple of my friends who always throw cool party's hopefully they'll see your talent and order from YOU! :]
