Yesterday, I made three kinds of cupcakes to sell at the 2nd Annual Afghan Film Festival in my home town which was sponsored by Canadian Women for Women in Afghanistan. The organization, which I volunteer for, works to help collect funds to support various initiatives in Afghanistan; mainly that of educating young girls in Afghanistan in hopes of providing them many opportunities for a bright & successful future. “Educate a girl and you educate a nation.”
I was very happy to donate my time & cupcakes to the very special event yesterday. I volunteer with some truly wonderful & amazing women. It was so nice to see so many people come out yesterday to support the cause and learn more about the plight of Afghan women through award-winning films. I highly recommend that you check out “Beyond Belief”; a very interesting account of two American women who lose their husbands in the 9/11 attacks who venture to Afghanistan to meet & help widows in Afghanistan.
I am happy to report that the cupcakes I made earned some extra money for the organization yesterday. Actually, I think the chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes sold out within the first hour! I had a number of requests to post all three cupcake recipes on my blog. Sooo…over the next few days…I will post the recipes for Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes, Raspberry & Chocolate Cupcakes and Pineapple & Coconut Cupcakes. All were delicious! I am not too sure which one would be my favourite flavour!
