Pink Lemonade Cupcakes + 10,000 Cupcakes One Great Cause

Pink Lemonade Cupcakes in October??? You must think I have my seasons mixed up, but I don’t. October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and I’ve partnered with KitchenAid to help support the fight against breast cancer through their 10,000 Cupcakes One Great Cause program. This year for each person who shares an original cupcake recipe on Twitter or Instagram with the hashtags #10000Cupcakes and #Donate, KitchenAid will donate $1 to Susan G. Komen to help support the fight against breast cancer, up to $10,000. In addition,KitchenAid will donate $450,000 or more to Susan G. Komen® through the Cook for the Cure® program and sales from the pink product collection.
