S'mores Cupcakes for Frosting for the Cause

Buried under a lot of snow back in January of this year, I visited one of my favorite blogsites and the post read 'Frosting of the Cause'.  Once I was done reading, I followed the link and stayed on the site to read some of the other entries and decided what a great cause and how can I join the cause?

Canadian blogger, Paula, has put together, Frosting for a Cause, a blogsite for bloggers and bakers to help raise funds for breast cancer awareness.  Having had my own mom experience the shock of being diagnosed with breast cancer and surviving it, I felt it was a no brainer.  April 29th was my assigned date to come up with a recipe and tutorial to post on this special site. In return, I then needed to donate the baked goods to a local cancer organization, hospital or hospice and pledged $25 to a cancer organization of my choice.

The funny thing about living in the Northeast is how not trusting souls are around here.  When I dropped off the cupcakes at my local hospital's Comprehensive Breast Center, they were received rather suspiciously.  It was like a scene out of Good Fellas with Joe Pesci at the helm.

Joe: So.....Why do you wanna drop off cupcakes?  
Me: Because...yadda, yadda, yadda...Frosting for the Cause...yadda...cancer...yadda...blog.
Joe: Blooog?  (Best wise guy accent)
Me:  Yes.  Blog.  Did I stutter?  
A lot of staring on behalf of both parties at this point.   
Me:  Please enjoy them!   
Joe:  Enjoy them?  Enjoy them how?

Trust me, the whole thing was ridiculous.

Happy Baking!

Thanks for your confidence but I live in West Virginia! We don't have any cancer centers here, so I will probably drive into DC or Virginia to drop them off. Hopefully they will get it!
