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!
