Cupcakes for Haiti

So, the Student Bar Association at the law school wanted to get $1000 together to donate to Doctors Without Borders in support of their effort in Haiti.  One of the fundraising events was called "Rent a Student". For the event, there was an auction where student services were auctioned off.  I offered up 2 dozen custom cupcakes.  When a bidding war arose between a professor and my friend who won my cupcakes in the PILA auction, I decided to offer up 4 dozen.  All in all, my 4 dozen cupcakes generated $150 for Haiti.  This was the first batch of cupcakes for that effort.  I made them for my friend Becca who wanted to bring them to her friend's birthday party.  She told me that the birthday girl loves bright colors and mint chocolate chip ice cream, so I made these beauties.

The cake is a chocolate chocolate chip cake. The frosting is a mint buttercream.  I cut the flowers out of fondant and piped buttercream on their centers.  I hope this inspires others to donate their own services to benefit a charitable cause.  Enjoy!
