Baking For Charity

I've been searching for how I can give back to the community by baking for a while, so I was ecstatic when I found the Eat My Blog annual bake sale - proceeds will go to the LA Regional Food Bank.  Here are the goodies we made!  I hope they sell well at tomorrow's bake sale.

Royal Iced Sugar Cookies
You can find the recipe on Jenny Steffens Hobick's blog (fantastic ideas!!)
http://jennysteffens.blogspot.com/2010/12/recipes-christmas-cookies-christmas.html

For the royal icing I used this meringue powder based recipe

Cake Pops (minus the lollipop stick)





This recipe is from Bakerella's book.  These adorable boxes were made from Michael's white boxes (79 cents each) and wide ribbon taped with a Stampin' Up tag (of course)!  To purchase the stamp set used please visit my online Stampin' Up store - http://ckkwan.stampinup.net/ and search for Best of Everything.

Marshmallow Filled Chocolate Cupcakes with Gum Paste Flowers



This is the best chocolate cupcake recipe I've found so far: http://bakebakebake.livejournal.com/2748606.html
And the frosting was from Martha Stewart: http://www.marthastewart.com/313083/quick-chocolate-frosting
I added a few marshmallows to the recipe - I love how they melt when you put them in right after you pull them out of the oven.  So delicious and moist!!

Gum paste flowers were from Wilton's ready made stuff - worked great!

Happy baking everyone!
