Recently a pledge sister of mine from my sorority (Sigma Kappa) was diagnosed with Breast Cancer.
You can imagine how shocked we were.
She had the tiniest, tiniest chance of getting Breast Cancer at 26 years old.
Visit her blog if you get the chance.
Two of my other sorority sisters and myself decided to put together a little care package for Vanessa, her hubby and her kids.
We included some adorable personalized pails and gifts for her girls, some beautiful stationery for Vanessa and some cookies for the whole family (mostly her husband!).
First I made my icing. I kept it simple and stuck to pink and white.
I made a flood icing in both colors and a piping icing in both colors.
Then I made a few different shapes.
Mostly ones that reminded me of Vanessa and ones I thought would be uplifting.
Here are the finished products!
I loved the cowgirl hat and cowgirl boot.
And the details on the cupcake.
Here's a lesson in photography. Using your flash can change everything. The pictures above were taken with the flash on. When you looked at the cookies in real life, they were the same hot pink.
Now look at the picture below. I kept the flash off. It's a lighter, blush pink.
Which, I wish is how the coookies actually looked.
Here they are all packaged and ready to be shipped.
The best part was that they actually arrived in one piece!
