Babycakes Couture for the Cure...

Mother's Day is fast approaching and as every year since my mother's diagnosis, we kick off the festivities of the day with the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure. This July my mom will celebrate eight years of being cancer free! She is awesome, and we are lucky to have her.

So to give back and  help out in the largest way possible, this year I have started a team.  Team Babycakes Couture for the Cure has a fundraising goal of $1000. In addition, 50% of the profits made from BCC business from now until Mother's Day will go towards breast cancer research. As more members join the team, we will get closer and closer to surpassing our goal.

If you are in the Philadelphia area, join our team and come out and walk with us on Mother's Day. If you are not in the area, you can still join and raise funds to help us reach our goal. And if you would like to make a donation please feel free to do so on the team page or on my personal page.

Thanks guys for your help.
Remember to do monthly self breast exams. Early detection is the best protection.

Talk about busy...

Tonight I vow to, no matter how busy I get, post a meaningful blog entry at least three times a week. Whew, that's a serious commitment. And when I say meaningful, I mean as meaningful as one could be when it involves a cupcake.

My name is Khadijah and I am an addict. I am addicted to cupcakes, eating them- in moderation of course, baking them, and buying anything related to them.
This afternoon I was minding my own business in AC Moore when all of a sudden I heard the cutest little cupcake boxes calling my name. And they had the nerve to only be a dollar. And a two pack at that. The next thing I knew they were in my basket. I couldn't just leave them there. I mean they're tiny, they will only fit one cupcake, but I'm clever. They will end up being favor boxes, centerpieces, ballon weights or something.
We shall see. 

They even come with cute little gift tags. Aren't they sweet?

Famous Cupcakes

So my girlfriend Kim K. has done it again. I told you before that she and her beautiful sisters have this whole campaign for their favorite cupcake bakery, Famous Cupcakes in Beverly Hills. Well wouldn't you know not only does she have her own cupcake, but now she also has her own D-I-Y cupcake mix.

Now normally you know I would be completely against this. Really, because from scratch is where it's at! I don't fool around with mixes, but that's just me. I don't judge. However for my semi-homemade kitchenistas this is a totally cute idea. The kit comes with enough mix for 18 of Kimmie's favorite "VaVaVa Nilla" cupcakes, cupcake liners, pink sugar crystals and a recipe for pink buttercream frosting. Not intimidating at all; even to the meekest of bakers. So step up ladies don't be shy. No one has to know it's from a box. I won't tell. I may even order a box, you know, just to test it out.

It is Kim Kardashian. Love her!

Blonde Bombshell...

So What comes to mind when you hear "Blonde Bombshell"?
Would it be Marilyn Monroe?

Or maybe Scarlett Johansson?
How about Miss Beyonce?

Well once you taste the newest addition to the collection you will never have another thought when you hear "Blonde Bombshell". This cupcake is the hottest thing this season. It's a must have item this spring.

Have you ever had a Blondie?
My Blonde Bombshell is the Blondie's sexy cousin from out of town.
She is a moist cake flavored with brown sugar and jazzed up with Heath toffee chips, frosted with white chocolate cream cheese frosting and, hello, topped off with a caramel drizzle.
You can't help but to close your eyes and bite it slow, take a deep breath and enjoy!

And the award goes to...

Oh my goodness, oh my goodness, oh my goodness!
Though the Oscars are not until Sunday, I am walking the red carpet right now.
To accept my Bloggy Award that is. The fabulousy creative Monique over at Enchanted Expectations was inspired by lil' old me and was so inclined to give me a Bloggy. So sweet especially coming form her. She is an amazing, and supremely creative party planner. She maps out everything for her clients and really has an eye for out of the box designs. In one word, she's Awesome! You know that's my favorite word. One of my favorite things on her site is the Rock Star Inspiration Board.

My daughter would love it!

Anyway, if you're in the Maryland area and are looking for an excellent party planner check her out.
