Support the New Zealand Breast Cancer Foundation during May of each year by hosting a pink ribbon breakfast. Or again in October when it's breast cancer awareness month. It's not difficult to do, its a good excuse to catch up with friends and family and the money raised goes to a great cause! Here are a few sweet ideas...
The iconic pink ribbon is super simple to create with either a strip of fondant or modelling chocolate twisted once. Cupcakes make a nice parting gift for friends to enjoy later, as they have probably filled up on other savouries and sweets at your brekky.
Kiwicakes have a good range of old fashioned lollies great for snacking on at gatherings. In the pink theme I went with sour strawberries and glo-hearts. Good to dot around the room in snacking bowls.
Store-bought mallowpuff type biscuits were made into boob shape with a dot of white chocolate melts and a pinch of crystal candy pink glitter. These were a great conversation piece!
Plain vanilla cookies are jazzed up with pink fondant or modelling chocolate toppers. Use any cutters you have to cut both the cookie and the topper. Smaller plunger cutters can be used to imprint extra decoration and adhere the pieces with sugar glue. Nice to have with a cuppa.
This photo does not do these scrummy meringues justice. They were a stock standard recipe that I added a couple of teaspoons of 100% strawberry powder and an equal amount of boiling water to before beating. They were punchy and chewy in the center, while crisp on the outer. The natural flavour of these fruit powders is just amazing.
Get inspired, get your friends together and get collecting for this important cause.
