If I see another cupcake it will be too soon, well, only if I have to frost and decorate it—eating one is another matter entirely. This past Saturday, I had the amusing task of frosting and decorating one hundred Sprinkles cupcakes, but all in the name of charity—for the Sprinkles Cupcakes Big D’s “Big News” Cupcake Wars.
My chosen charity was Fashion Group International of Dallas, my goal to raise funds for Career Day, 2012. This annual event provides educational outreach programs to students seeking careers in the fashion and lifestyle industries and awards local talent with over $35,000 in scholarships funds. Since Dallas lists such fashionable business as Neiman Marcus, J.C. Penny, and Fossil, to name only a few—it seems a worthy cause indeed to support local education.
