This is the second year Team Donelle is participating in the Triangle Race for the Cure! Last year, with the help of Ladies Fitness & Wellness, we were able to raise over $2,000.00 in the fight against breast cancer!
I am proud to say that after a long year of surgery, chemo, radiation, and so many medications, my sister's cancer is in remission!
On Saturday, June 11, 2011 at Meredith College in Raleigh, NC we will walk or run in honor and in celebration of Donelle and all the many women fighting breast cancer.
So far this year, we have raised $625.00!
I wanted to think of another way I could help raise money for our team and I came up with doing something else I love to do... baking!
This weekend I sold cupcakes to all the lovely ladies at Fitness & Wellness!
I made pink velvet cake with raspberry buttercream, chocolate cake with Mocha buttercream, chocolate cake with cookies & cream buttercream, and vanilla cake with brown sugar buttercream!
After a tough workout, these ladies earned cupcakes, and raised money for breast cancer at the same time!
All proceeds went to benefit Team Donelle for Race for the Cure.
We raised over $275!!!
Thank you, ladies!

(my personal favorite - chocolate & cookies & cream!)
She began by baking out of her home, believe it or not, and has been decorating for 25 years!
The cake and sugar flowers took 5 weeks to make! The cake was 8 tiers high and there were up to 900 sugar-paste flowers and 17 different types of flowers! So you know Mrs. Cairns and her team had to get started early!
Apparently, Kate Middleton had the whole detailed design of what she wanted her cake to entail - down to what each type of flower meant to her and William!
It even had their new monogram or cipher on the third tier.
The string work and detail on this cake is absolutely amazing.
