CupCakes for the Cure

More "Freshly Faked CupCakes" ! ..this time with a theme. Here in Georgia, it's time for the annual Relay for Life campaigns to raise money for cancer research. Last spring, I decided to decorate a set of my faux cupcakes using the pink ribbons that support breast cancer and sweet little pink fairies to either watch over someone fighting cancer or to give as a gift to a friend who has lost someone dear to this dreadful illness. My mama died from cancer years ago when I was still in my twenties. I keep one of these on my hutch. These sweet little "Cupcakes for the Cure" have once again been a real "treat" to make!

Linking these little pretties to Pink Saturday @ How Sweet the Sound

The Sunday Showcase @ Under the Table and Dreaming

They are beautiful! My daughter did an all night long relay for life Friday night at Disney...she said it was a wonderful experience and worth giving up a night's sleep.

Joy said...

They are beautiful and for such a great cause. I had my sister-in-law and best friend find out they had breast cancer in the same month. My sister-in-law is doing well. My best friend lost her battle with cancer a year ago.
Thanks for sharing .

Hi, I just wanted to stop by for a visit. What a sweet thing to do for a great cause. I'm so sad to hear that you lost your beloved mom to cancer. You have my sympathy. I love your sweet little "Cupcakes for the Cure". I've always wanted to try to make these too! You did an awesome job, they are just darling, would have never guessed they were "faux".
Hugz,
Kim
