I want to wake up in the city that never sleeps . . .

I can NOT stop singing New York, New York!

Yep, that's right....a little New York City update for you. Just a short recap, 14 other food bloggers and I will be teaming up with Kelly Ripa and a special cake decorating guest to decorate cakes and raise money for the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

{Thank you, Electrolux and Foodbuzz.}

Tuesday is the big's how it will work (I think):
  • Arrive in The Big Apple Monday...dinner and cocktails with the other bloggers! Yay!
  • Tuesday morning, we're heading out EARLY to see Live with Regis & Kelly!!!
  • That afternoon, we are paired with 2 other bloggers to decorate our cakes.
  • We will be given tips by a surprise guest (click here to find out!).
  • We'll pull a theme out of a hat and have ONE hour to decorate our cake (and eat lunch!).
Here's where you come in...
  • The cakes will be posted on Kelly Confidential. You'll be able to vote for your favorite and by doing so, a donation will be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
  • Check back here on Wednesday because I'll have more info AND a prize to thank you for voting and raising money.
Let me introduce you to my decorating team of three...
  1. Jen, of My Kitchen Addiction: check out her Cake with Peanut Butter Frosting!!!
  2. Diana, of A Little Bit of Spain in Iowa: how good does this German Chocolate Cake look?!?
  3. And, moi! :)
Get to know the other lovely bloggers going along on the trip as well. I can't wait to meet them all!

♥Katherine, of Smoky Mountain Cafe and Chocolate Brownie Cookies
♥Meghann, of The Inner Workings of a College Graduate and Pumpkin Spice Granola
♥Megan, of Megan's Munchies makes yummy Spice Cake Oatmeal Scotchies

♥Laura, of The Cooking Photographer makes Caramel Macchiato Thumbprints (!)
♥Erika, from In Erika's Kitchen has a great post on 10 Things NOT to say to Kelly Ripa
