Two of our WPIC members were recently featured on Global news and in the Toronto Star, selling cake pops to raise money to send 4-year-old Leukemia patient-Kaitlyn on a vacation of a life time. Currently 4-year-old Kaitlyn is undergoing treatment at Sick Kids Hospital.

Toronto Local and Destination Wedding Planners-Jennifer Borgh and Robin Wight were inspired to help when they heard how sick Jennifer past co-worker's daughter was. They got together and planned their event to try and give the family something positive to look forward to, and help lift their spirits during these difficult times. They immediately started organizing Cake Pops 4 Cancer, which took place in Toronto last week.
Coated in purple, yellow, brown, orange, red, pink, green and blue chocolate, the cake pops are a fresh twist on traditional lollipops and make for a great novelty item at parties or a special occasion at home. Earlier this year our WPIC Blog featured Cake Pops as one of the latest trends to hit weddings. Cake pops are delicious balls of chocolate cake dipped in colourful chocolate on a stick, making them fun for children and adults alike. Cake pops are a hybrid cupcake/ lollipop and taste like a brownie dipped in chocolate. Thanks to Bakerella who shares her baking secrets and baking ideas on her website anyone can attempt this or other unique recipes.
The Cake Pops 4 Cancer fundraiser is going on until August 31, 2010, if you would like to place an order for a dozen Cake Pops for $25, please contact Jennifer Borgh at firstname.lastname@example.org to place your order.
