So October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and on Monday it’s Pink Ribbon Day.

This weekend I’m off for a girlie weekend where we’ll celebrate Pink Ribbon Day. To bribe everyone, I’ve spent the week preparing my signature cupcakes, and finally finished them just now:

I made the ribbons over the course of Tuesday (coloured the fondahhhhnt in the morning before work and shaped them when I got home that night), made the cupcakes last night and made the icing tonight to finish off the whole shebang.

I was debating leaving the buttercream icing uncoloured, but decided to go with some pink. Overdid it with the Wilton pink icing colouring, but as if there’s such a thing as too much pink!

No doubt Barbara, Kay, Leigh and Naomi will have their sugar fix well and truly sorted by tomorrow afternoon…
