Who doesn't like cake? It doesn't have to be someone's birthday for me to celebrate with a slice! And here is one way to indulge without the guilt or thunder thighs.
Electrolux and Kelly Ripa are joining forces to support The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund (OCRF) with their latest campaign, "Kelly's Cake Off For a Cause". Kelly and master baker and cake decorator Buddy Valastro of "Cake Boss" fame recently hosted a fun event, in which they baked lavishly decorated cakes. Five teams of baking enthusiasts were also invited to take part in the "Cake Off", where they used the nuggets of wisdom they learned from Kelly and Buddy to decorate their own cakes.
And while we won't get chance to taste these goodies, we can still join in on the fun. If you visit www.Kelly-Confidential.com, you can cast your vote for your favorite cake from Kelly's Cake Off! For every vote cast, Electrolux will donate $1 to OCRF as part of its $500,000 commitment to help fight ovarian cancer! You can also decorate and send a virtual cake to a loved one. For every cake sent, Electrolux will donate another dollar to OCRF! Also, everyone who logs onto the site and sends a virtual cake will automatically be entered to win a brand new, eco-friendly Induction Range from Electrolux!
If that's not incentive enough to stop by, you'll also find top cake decorating tips from Buddy himself, sure to inspire even novices like me.
As if cake needed to taste any sweeter.
Disclaimer: I was made aware of this campaign due to my membership in MomSelect. In exchange for my post, I will be entered to win an Electrolux Induction Range. I was not compensated in any way for this post.
