I offered to bake mini cupcakes for the Hearts and Hands Annual Gala to support the Millvale Franciscan Volunteer Program. Please see this site to read more about this wonderful program which services the Pittsburgh area poor and needy. There were well over 100 people attending the gala which featured a silent auction, raffles, and delicious foods from area restaurants.
I spent two entire days in the kitchen to produce the freshest and most delicious cupcakes. I had so much fun planning the menu and creating adorable little morsels of yum! I'm happy to say that the cupcakes were a huge success! In addition to Rootbeer Fudge Cupcakes, I made
Banana Espresso Chocolate Chip Muffins with Chocolate Banana Ganache, a favorite among the attendees,
