I'm sorry if I scared you, but it is Halloween after all! Can I console you with a itty bitty chocolate cupcake?! HOPE School held their annual Harvest Party this evening. Little ghosts and princesses running around everywhere. So cute!

What d'ya do with some extra frosting?! Mini-cupcakes are always a delicious option! Extra frosting? But there was no blog entry with scrumptious pink frosting, you say. Well, it was left over from a cake I made for my Aunt Sandy's birthday :) Anyway, while the cake was great...the pictures, not so much. So you'll just have to settle for looking at these cute little cupcakes!

This week Mission Possible held a fundraiser to support the wonderful woman who hosts us each year in Honduras. After several years of remission, Marlene's breast cancer returned. Having breast cancer in a developing country presents additional challenges that are hard for any of us to imagine. Yet this woman will not let these challenges beat her. Thank you to everyone who has helped us support the Carias family in this fight.

Well, the brownie bits with raspberry buttercream that I made the other day were just too yummy, so I had to make them again! Plus, I had a dinner party to attend that they were prefect for. Plus, I had some delicious raspberries left over. Yummy, yummy...just as good the second time!

What's the perfect compliment to kickball?! Well, mini-cupcakes of course. Mission Possible held the 2nd annual kickball tournament this weekend to raise money for our service work in Central America. Kickball provides the perfect distraction from the craziness of law school.

Flashback to the first official cookies from Jujubee's Bakery! As I mentioned in that first post, my aunt and uncle are part of an organization, called Healing Hearts Northwest, that does medical missions to Rwanda. They perform dozens of much needed heart surgeries each year and work with the local community to build their medical programs. I brought back the Rwandan flags, Africas with the heart over Rwanda, and the swirly hearts for a fundraiser they're having this weekend. They put so much work into fundraising to make sure they can continue to help the people of Rwanda, so I'm more than happy to make them cookies any time they need.
I think the flags turned out mucho better this time. The lines are much straighter and much more precise. I also decided to line the Africa cookies with color, instead of white this time, which I'm happy with. It's kind of funny...if you look at the Africa cookies for too long, they start to look like Great Lakes....hehe (Can you tell I've stayed up way too late baking?!). The trickiest part of this whole order was definitely getting all the cookies to look cute in one big box.
