Today, I would like to share a cause that's very IMPORTANT to me.
As all of you know, Philippines was devastated by Typhoon Haiyan a few months ago.
There were A LOT of casualties and a lot of damage.
I know it's not being covered in the news heavily now but, after reading about the aftermath and current situation in this article, my heart is aching :(
My heart goes out to everyone who has been affected by this natural disaster and those who are STILL being affected.
So, I am now a very PROUD supporter of Red Cross that's providing the people of Philippines with HELP and ASSISTANCE.
I can't be there in person to help out but I can help by giving a DONATION to Red Cross, even if it's just a small amount.
After all, every little bit counts...
If you would like to make a DONATION too, please click on this widget and help out in any way you can :)
Also, Causora has paired up with Red Cross and you can now earn rewards for your donations.
You can use these rewards on clothes, restaurants, makeup and so much more. Check out the full list HERE.
To show my appreciation for Red Cross and Causora and all the hard work they are doing, I made these chocolate cupcakes with the Red Cross logo and even did a simple tutorial.
To make these red cross toppers, you will need the following supplies:
White marshmallow fondant
Red marshmallow fondant
"I" cookie cutter
And here are the steps:
Roll out red fondant.
Use the "I" cutter to cut out 2 pieces.
Use a knife to cut off the ends on the top and bottom of your "I."
You will end up with a thin rectangular piece.
Stick the 2 thin rectangular pieces into a "plus" sign, using some water.
Place this "plus" sign on a sheet of wax paper.
Now, roll out white fondant and cut out a circle piece.
Stick the red "plus" sign on the white circular piece, using some water.
And you are done!
Let these toppers dry overnight on a sheet of wax paper and then use them on top of your chocolate cupcakes.
Well, that's all for today.
I hope you would consider making a donation to Red Cross to help the people of Philippines.
Until next time, tata my lovelies.
