kentucky derby "k-derby" event


This past weekend my Kiwanis group hosted a horse racing fundraiser called the K-derby

Kevin & I dressed like we were headed to the real Kentucky Derby





Kiwanis is a world wide community service organization that has individual groups (like the Normal Kiwanis Club that I'm a part of or the Bloomington Kiwanis Club that my boss is a part of) that meet together and serve their community by doing service projects and providing financial support to not-for-profit organizations.

 


The fundraiser was sooo much fun! We watched a series of horse races and "bet" on which horse(s) would win. If we were right then we got to enter our winning tickets into prize buckets for a chance to win prizes donated by a local business.

This was the first year I've been able to attend the fundraiser and I already can't wait for next year!

I was on the planning committee, and specifically, I was responsible for the food. I worked with our venue for most of the food and then made serveral cupcakes & cakepops to cover the sweet stuff!

 



I got lots of compliments on the goodies so that was certainly nice, but mostly I was glad to be able to share the treats I enjoy baking so much!






There was chocolate oreo cupcakes with cookies n cream frosting





Coconut carrot cake with cream cheese frosting



Margarita cupcakes with tequila lime buttercream
(to celebrate our fundraiser being held on Cinco De Mayo)

 


Chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes with chocolate buttercream



You might think it'd be hard to beat those yummy looking cupcakes, but the big hit was the cake pops!

I made:
 White chocolate devil's food cake pops
Milk chocolate vanilla cake pops &
Peanut butter chocolate cake pops

 


Luckily, I had a few left over so now that I'm dying for a cake pop after writing this post... I'll go have one of my last hoarded treats :)
