6th Annual Power of Pink Challenge

Today kicks off my 6th Annual Power of Pink Challenge. Back in 2008, I wanted to find a way to help promote Breast Cancer Awareness during National Breast Cancer Awareness Month. I came up with the Power of Pink Challenge to as a way to encourage fellow bloggers, bakers, and readers to think about Breast Cancer Awareness by making something PINK in their kitchen.

 

Power of Pink

As you all know, breast cancer is a disease that has touched my life in more ways that I would like to admit. I have made it a personal goal of mine to try to make a difference on this front.

I have been saving pink recipes as I see them come up throughout the year. To check out some inspiration here are the Power of Pink Favorites on Foodgawker or my Power of Pink Posts.

Here are the rules for the challenge:

  • Make something that is PINK – use any ingredients you want
  • Post a new post during the month of October on your blog (if you don’t have a blog, you can still participate, see below)
  • Post your pink food by Midnight EST on October 31
  • Include the logo and link back to this post in your post (please upload to your own server)
  • Email me at Jen[at]beantownbaker[dot]com – include:
  1. Your name
  2. Name of your blog
  3. Link to your post
  4. Picture (or permission to pull one out of your post)

If you don’t have a blog and would like to participate, just send me your information to be entered.

As always, I’m offering a giveaway along with the challenge to one lucky participant. I will be choosing one of the participants at random and making a $100 donation to a charity of their choice. It can be breast cancer related or not.

Feel free to follow along on Twitter or Instagram by using #powerofpinkchallenge too!

    I love that you were able to make this without artificial flavour or colour! So many ‘strawberry’ baked goods don’t even have real strawberries in them… thanks for sharing!!

      I try my hardest to make pink foods without any artificial crap in them. I was excited to find this recipe for a strawberry treat with all real ingredients!

    These look absolutely delicious, saving for summer! I had pink recipe in mind, but things have been so crazy here too that I haven’t had a chance to make it 🙁 I haven’t even baked an apple pie yet! Hopefully next weekend…

      I completely understand! I didn’t get all of my pink recipes posted this month and I haven’t made anything apple yet this year!!
