I belong to the FRG – otherwise known as the Family Readiness Group. We do all kinds of good things for the families, the soldiers, and are a really good support system for each other. We deal with all kinds of issues and I am usually ready to jump in with both feet to help out. But last week I was a little distracted. There was a fundraiser last week – a Cake Auction – right up my alley right?? Well I felt like I had no time to bake the things I wanted to. But what I did make turned out pretty darn good! Just look at these Coconut Cupcakes with Coconut Buttercream and topped with shredded Coconut!
I made 16 of them, thinking they would sell them all together – but Nikki decided to split them up to make some more money! 8 cupcakes went for $30.00!! And my Chocolate Cake (sorry no pics) went for $45.00! Also attached to the bottoms of these cakes were rewards for the soldiers that bought them, like a 3 day pass, lunch with the Commander (I would like that one!), a pass from having to do Physical Training at 6 am!, etc. So the guys were not only bidding on the yummy treats, but also the chance to win some good prizes underneath.
And I am happy to say that we raised over $700.00 for our company.
Love Big, Bake Often
