Baking for Boobies

So a couple of months ago, my boyfriend gave me the idea of doing some bake sales for charity. I got in touch with the coordinator for the Susan G. Komen foundation in Atlanta, and last week got everything finalized to do bake sales to raise money for breast cancer! This time of year is so busy with track and school that I don’t have the time in the next couple of weeks to bake for an entire day and do an actual bake sale, so I decided to try something different. Our track team left yesterday to come to Duke for the outdoor ACC Championships, and I wanted to make a good luck treat, and I also decided to let everyone know what I’m raising money for and have a donation jar where people could donate a dollar or so if they felt like it!

I kept it simple and just used three cupcake mixes (chocolate, butter recipe yellow, and vanilla), and used a canned chocolate and vanilla frosting and made one batch of homemade buttercream. I actually flew up to Durham earlier yesterday so I wasn’t on the bus, but everyone thanked me and were generous in the donation jar so I’m very grateful and excited that my first fundraising attempt went well!

About Mary Kate

Hey Ya'll! My name is Mary Kate DuBard, I was born and raised in South Carolina, and I have wonderful parents and two older brothers. I'm currently living in Atlanta and attending Georgia Tech; I'm a junior majoring in Industrial Engineering and minoring in Spanish. I'm on the track and field and cross country teams here as well. I love everything outdoors, traveling, being with friends, laughing, anything sweet, and BAKING. My favorite part of any meal has always been dessert, and I grew up with my grandmother's perfect pecan pie and banana pudding. Since high school, I have loved to bake and throughout college, I have especially branched out, baking several times a week and enjoying the adventures of trying new recipes. My hope is to eventually run my own bakery someday! I decided to start a little blog to document my baking endeavors and allow my friends and family to keep up with my sweet tooth.
