These cupcakes were made in March 2010 for a very special cause. Emilie babysits for a family who lost their baby girl, Delaney, in December of 2009. She was only 7 weeks, but was able to save a life because her parents donated her organs. In her memory, Delaney's family decided they would walk in a March of Dimes walk under the team name "Delaney's Dreamers" to keep her name and story going. The team raised a record-breaking over $50,000, making them the #1 team in the country!! But where do cupcakes fit into this? Emilie, Christina, and Irma were all going to walk, and so they baked and sold cupcakes to friends and family and raised a good amount of money to contribute. We weren't able to get the best pictures of the cupcakes, but they tasted delicious and were for a good cause, too!
The flavors were Chocolate and French Vanilla, and the frosting was a velvety marshmallow fluff frosting. We'll try to post recipes soon!
