Pink Ribbon Cupcakes for Pink Ribbon Day

I haven't been on blogger for over a week as I have been busy organising the Pink Luncheon for this Thursday.  We have about 23 guests so far and we are running a mini silent auctions with some great lucky door prizes.  Monday, 24 October is Pink Ribbon Day and I am baking this cupcakes to the school office ladies who have been helping me to promote this event.

When I look at the recipe of the cupcake, I suppose to separate the egg yolk and egg white, beat the egg yolk with butter and sugar, then fold in the stiff egg white.  Well, I am just not in the mood to beat the egg white till it is stiff.  So the recipe has been changed according to my mood.  I added in some white chocolate and raspberries and surprisingly the sourness of the raspberry balance the sweetness of the white icing.  And I can tell you that the cake is really delicious!

I take the chance of Pink Ribbon Day to wish for those people who have been suffering from this disease with great recovery and starting a new journey of life.  With hope, life is alway sweet!  Hopefully, one day there is a cure for it.
