FCFC "Fun"-Raiser Dessert Table

We had the privilege of making the desserts for Family and Children Faith Coalition's first annual "Fun-Raiser" Paint the Town. FCFC is dear to my heart not only because I work there with incredibly wonderful people, but because I believe in the work this organization does in our community through each of its programs by providing after school care for children so that their parents are able to work knowing their children are in a safe and loving environment, connecting children  with their incarcerated parents, mentoring, and teaching our teenagers about the benefits of abstinence.   FCFC is a faith based organization and everything we do is with the purpose of effectively respond to the needs of our neighbors. If you didn't have the opportunity to go to this event, you can still be part of what FCFC does, just go to to get more information and see how you can help.

I thank God for my husband Ignacio for all his hard work on this project! The man is incredible!  I couldn't have done this without him! It took us a total of 27 hours to complete this project between Thursday, Friday and Saturday. We made three flavors of cupcakes: Lemon Chiffon, Fudge with Hazelnut filling, and Vanilla Bean with Dulce de Leche filling.  We also  made white chocolate truffles filled with caramel.  People would come up to me and tell me how good they were (thank God!), Brownie Pecan bites and Tropical milk chocolate and coconut bites that people couldn't just have one!  I ran out of my business cards that evening!  I thank FCFC for the opportunity they gave me to not only make these desserts for them, but for allowing me to network with other people.
