A week ago Friday our instructor for Body Pump did a theme of Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness and used every Pink (the artist) song that she had for each muscle track and for those she didn’t, she used inspirational/fun songs. It was so hard…my legs are still sore.
So I decided to make ribbon cookies for the class this week to help celebrate this month! Cancer has been apart of my life a lot in the last few years and I try to do whatever I can to help with awareness. If you haven’t checked out Frosting For A Cause where awesome bakers from all over bake and post about their goods. So many recipes, so many amazing stories and some heartbreaking. Those are the stories that make me want to keep doing whatever I can for this great cause. You can find my story and post here. It’s been almost two years since my mother found out about her growth and after the last MRI, she has been given a clean bill of health!!! I do the dance!!!
So if you haven’t yet and want to get involved, just click on over and join in the fun! Our illustrious leader Paula would love to have you on board!
Back to Body Pump class. Our instructor Lisa is amazing. She motivates and makes you smile while you consciously inflict pain on yourself. There are a lot of amazing women in this class too who workout to keep healthy and strong. I decided to make them these cookies to help promote a great cause and reward them with a little treat. Each cookie bag has been adorned with the Frosting for the Cause logo and Trilogy Edibles plus both URLs to keep the awareness going!
I made the cookies with simple motivational words. Here’s how I did it:
- Make Ribbon cookies. Recipe here
- Outline Ribbon in darker pink piping icing.
- Fill with flood icing in lighter pink.
- Sprinkle with pink sanding sugar and let dry overnight.
- Adorn with inspiration words in the black piping icing.
So go out and spread the word for this amazing cause. Because together we can make a difference!
I got the awesome shirt from Old Navy and wore it to the Body Pump class!
