New York City, here I come!

I just wanted to share some exciting news with you all...

Foodbuzz & Electrolux are teaming up with 15 food bloggers to join Kelly Ripa (!) in NYC for a special cake decorating event to generate support for and awareness of the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

The Ovarian Cancer Research Fund's mission is to fund research to find a method of early detection and ultimately a cure for ovarian cancer.

I couldn't be more honored to have been selected to be one of the 15 bloggers participating in the event!

{And there's nothing like the prospect of meeting Kelly Ripa to jump start those plans to get into shape! ;)}

The event takes place February 9th and I'll let you know more as I know more. I'll be asking for your support in the form of votes and there *just may be* a giveaway in it for you, too!

In the meantime...THANK YOU for reading Bake at 350! I wish I could pack you all along in my suitcase!

I'm here now, but I'm goin' to New York City, baby!


Oh...want to know who else is going? Can't wait to meet these other food bloggers!!!
