I felt like I should be on the show Cupcake Wars, where they whip together super fabulous cupcakes with super odd ingredients super fast! lol Only our ingredients weren't super odd, they were super delicious, and it was teamwork and the blessing of borrowing a big facility that made it somewhat super fast!
LOTS of ingredients...for cupcake batter and icing!
Mmmmm...I have to say it WAS a little tempting not to sneak a taste with all the cupcake goodness everywhere! haha
This was the first batch of Strawberry flavored cupcakes!
Lots of good conversation, teamwork, and fun while we worked and waited...
Who could resist the cookies 'n cream goodness made from all these Oreos?!
Another delicious flavor choice!
Working hard! Look at all of those cupcakes!
Coffee flavored goodness...and more teamwork!
I got the sprinkling job...too much fun! I was glad because I wasn't brave enough to do the "icing" part!
First few batches iced and ready to pack! :)
And what would the work be without a taste test?
I think they were a success!
So...why all the cupcakes? Well...over the past few months, I have had the blessing of reconnecting with some wonderful girls I knew in high school. And sharing the heart God has given us for taking His love to the world...from our hometown! These cupcakes were a part of a month-long fundraiser for the organization Sixty Feet inspired by some amazing kiddos here in our own nation! You can click on the first link to learn more about the precious children in Uganda who are being cared for and taken out of imprisonment conditions to see and experience the love and freedom of Christ. The second link tells the story of some amazing kids who decided to make a difference...and haven't stopped since! What an inspiration and an encouragement to see how we can all be used by God no matter what our age or where we live, even through something as fun as cupcake making! :) The cupcake funds went to help Sixty Feet, and by the end, there were over 90 dozen ordered! I was only able to help with the first few dozen, but what a blessing that was to me! I am thankful for the chance to reconnect and serve with new friends.
