A couple of friends invited me to a fundraising fashion show to benefit Alzheimer’s research. Sure, I’m not really into fashion, but it’s for a good cause so why not?
(Mehmere showed a lot of the Alzheimer’s signs when she started to go and purple is her absolute favorite color in the world so I felt that I should attend this fundraiser to honor her. It just felt right and might even be fun!)
When I was reminded to purchase my tickets, I said I was planning on it, but had to wait for pay day. The girl hosting the event quickly fired back that they didn’t have dessert yet and if I’d donate cupcakes I could have my tickets on the house.
It ended up that we couldn’t go after all. In a schedule that something had to give, it was the event on the calender that had the greatest chance of causing migraine and would take a good chunk of productivity time.
So earlier today, in an absolute downpour, I delivered 12 dozen cupcakes:
– 4 dozen vanilla
– 4 dozen chocolate
– 4 dozen red velvet
What can I say? I’m a helper.
I wanted them to be pretty so I decorated them with:
– 5 lbs butter cream frosting
– 1/2 jar of purple sprinkles
– Silver stars and opal dusting sugar
There wasn’t enough left over to sample so I am hoping that my tried and true recipe friends came through.
Sue has faith that they have and as they say in parts of NY, Court, you done did good.
(I was just texting with Sue and she said it was a jam packed event!)
