Cupcakes for a Cause

cupcakes-for-a-cause.jpgReally, how can you go wrong buying a cupcake (or two or three) that has philanthropic rewards? This week is Cupcakes for a Cause Week, during which bakeries across the country are selling specially decorated cupcakes and donating partial proceeds to CancerCare for Kids, a free, professional support service for children affected by cancer. The cupcake drive runs until September 27 and is national; in Massachusetts, participating bakeries include Kickass Cupcakes (Somerville), Lyndell’s Bakery (Somerville & Boston), and Nantucket Bake Shop (Nantucket).
