“Surviving Beautiful” This is a design I have had in my head for quite a while and I am so happy there was finally an occasion to create it.The design was inspired by a beautiful Art Doll by Marina Bychkova created in tribute to breast cancer fighters.It was something that touched me in a way I can’t describe. My grandmother had a mastectomy and ultimately was taken by breast cancer. So the image of that doll stayed with me. It may be a difficult image for some people to see, but I wanted to create something real, raw and emotional. I wanted people to see that it is a beautiful spirit that matters. And no matter what Surviving is Beautiful. Figure sculpted with HotHands Modeling Chocolate
Welcome to Go Pink, a collaboration of 30 international cake artists who’ve come together to help raise awareness and funds towards breast cancer research.
October is Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual campaign designed to raise awareness of this disease that affects so many.
Breast cancer is the most common cancer in women worldwide with nearly 1.7 million new cases diagnosed in 2012.
In the United States alone, more than 200,000 women get breast cancer and more than 40,000 women die from the disease each year.
In the spirit of the month we have “gone pink” and each of us has created a pink cake that features a pink ribbon. All of these cakes were created with the kind sponsorship of Satin Ice Fine Foods.
To help raise money we have assembled 3 prize packages from 15 different sponsors that will be raffled. All proceeds from the raffle will go directly to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation. The raffle will run throughout the month of October. Tickets are $5 each and each increment of $5 donated will count as another entry. The more money donated, the greater your chance to win!
