Happy Friday to you!
Today's post is quick – just wanted to share a yummylicious recipe with you – Cherry Coconut Cupcakes ~ topped with a little ruby red glamour.
Can never resist the disco dust, and these cherry toppers were no exception.
I made these cupcakes to help raise money for breast cancer research, by putting on an 1,000 Cooks for the Cure party as a part of KitchenAid's Cook for the Cure efforts. Hosting a party (of any kind) any time from July 20th-July 29th and having guests bring a small donation for Susan G. Komen for the Cure, rather than bringing a housewarming gift, food or wine, is one way to help out. If you'd like to find out more, here's a link to get you started.

How to Make Glitter Cherries
The cherries are so easy to make. Just take a ball of fondant and roll it in the disco dust and insert some floral wire stem. I was inspired by Melissa's adorable cake over at My Cake School for the stems, although my twirly curling didn't turn out as lovely as hers.

Thanks for all the suggestions I got on facebook as to where to buy this green milk glass cake stand, by the way. I ended up buying it in a little shop in Toronto called Red Letter. Thanks Connie Cupcake!
Happy weekend to you – hope it's filled with all your favorite things (or at least some of them).
