For a neighbor of ours, who was hosting a jewelry party this weekend for her niece's company, Stella and Dot I was asked to make a simple cake for her guests to enjoy.
Stella and Dot has boutique-style jewelry and accessories available exclusively through in-home Trunk Shows by Independent Stylists and online.
I took the company logo and added a few fondant jewelry pieces and there you have it!
Beautiful, simple and quite delicious too!
Rapunzel, Disney's newest Princess, is very popular with young girls. One of those young girls is a sweet little girl, Lexie, who was in my son's preschool class this year. We were invited to her birthday party over the weekend and her mom asked me to create the Rapunzel tower cake for her and her guests to enjoy! It was a definite hit at the party!
My husband and I have joined a gym close to home called CrossFit Indian Trail. It's definitely a different spin on your typical workout. You can check out more here. I've only recently join, and as reserved as I was, I'm slowly becoming a fan, yes, you heard me, I like it! I'm still timid to go, but once I'm there...I'm good. But that's beside the point...my point here is cake!
Cindy’s Hope Chest mission is to support women battling breast cancer emotionally and financially. Their goal is to provide ways to educate, support, and encourage women while undergoing treatments. Cindy and her team of volunteers enjoy making women as comfortable as possible during the treatment process necessary to fight breast cancer. Cindy remembers what it was like, she was has been there and understands the fears and uncertainties. Cindy's Hope Chest joined forces with CrossFit Indian Trail to help raise money and help Cindy with her mission.
CrossFit Indian Trail was also working with Mammograms in Action to raise money to pay for mammograms. Barbells for Boobs, as it was called, was the workout we participated in to raise money for women in our community. Everyone who signed up participated in two workouts with a partner, a little bit of running, a few pull ups, a few kettle bell swings and oh yeah...lifting those barbells! (By the way, it's not as easy as you might think!)
Members from different CrossFit gyms in the area came and supported in this cause and together we raised over $3,000!! There was a bake sale, car wash, garage sale, 50/50 raffle, silent auction and the workout! What a great day, great weather, great people to work out with and fun all around!
So, back to the cake....I donated cookies, a cake for the silent auction and a cake for us to enjoy later at the cook out.
Congratulations to Nate and CrossFit Indian Trail. We had a great day participating in all the events and are glad we can help!
