Power of Pink Roundup and a Winner!

First, I’d like to thank everyone who participated in the Power of Pink Challenge this year. I know breast cancer has touched many of our lives. I’m hoping that this challenge has helped to raise awareness of this disease.

On a related note, I am starting training for the Avon Walk today. A good friend of mine offered to sign up to walk 39.3 miles over two days with me at some time next year. If you remember, Hubby and I were on the crew for the Boston Avon Walk this past year. In 2010, my friend A and I will be walking and our Hubbies will be on the crew. I’m sure I will be talking more about the walk over the next few months. It’s going to be an adventure for sure!

But now back to the challenge. Here are the submissions that I got throughout the month.

CB from I heart Cuppycakes made Lemon Angel Food Cupcakes with Strawberry Swiss Meringue Buttercream

Kris from A Baker’s Remix made Breast Cancer cakes

Dorothy from Fuzzykoala’s Caketastic Adventures made A Pink Pumpkin Spice Cake

Jelli from Jelli Bean Journals made Vanilla Cupcakes with Pink Frosting

Romina from Sweetened with Love made Pink Ribbon Cupcakes and Cookies

Kathleen from Kat’s Kitchen Place made Cowgirl Cookies

Erin from Milk & Honey made Chocolate Pinks

Claudia from Highlowaha made Double D’s cake pops

Brianne from Sweet Cheeks made Into the Pink Pretzels

Yudith from Blissfully Delicious made Pink Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Xiaolu from 6 Bittersweets made Redless Velvet Cupcakes with Pink Frosting

Stefany from Proceed with Caution made Think Pink Cheesecake

And I made chocolate pink M&M cookies

Thanks again everyone for participating in the challenge. And now it’s time for the fun part! Choosing the winner. I did it the old-fashioned way this time. I cut up little pieces of paper, wrote names on each piece and threw them in a hat. I had Hubby draw a name out of that hat.

And the winner of this fabulous prize is…

Kris! Congratulations!!

Please email me your address and I will get your prize out as soon as possible.

    Tyler Florence’s Ultimate cookbook is my wow the family staple. For simple dinner with my husband I like Rachel Ray or Giada.
