Cupcakes for Life 2011 – Dallas

By: Ann Baker

Every year on October 9th, students all across the country join together to celebrate the pro-life event National Pro-Life Cupcake Day. This year the Save the Storks team, along with a group of middle school and high school students, gathered together in Dallas, TX to put our hands into action to decorate cupcakes in the name of life!

Daryl and I spent Friday afternoon and evening baking delicious chocolate and vanilla cupcakes at her house. After about four batches, we devised a flawless two-man system, perfecting the results of our combined domestic skills. We must have made at least 40 batches of cupcakes by the time it was all said and done. Needless to say, Daryl’s kitchen was a tiny bit messy 🙂

On Saturday morning, Joe, Daryl, Dave and I (The Dallas Stork Team) headed over to the Uptown Women’s Center, one of the most beautiful and revolutionary pro-life facilities in the country. The director, Selena, was so gracious to open the center and allow us to use the kitchen for the day.

We had a small, wonderful group of students and young adults join us at the Uptown Women’s Center. In addition to frosting, decorating, and eating cupcakes, we had discussions on purity, sexuality, and abortion. Dave and Joe even taught one of the younger male students to make an awesome paper airplane! I think they had had enough of all the ‘girl’ stuff .

Cupcakes for Life was a success! We had bright frosting colors and all the sprinkles you could imagine, and the girls had a great time doodling in the frosting. In the end, we decorated over 700 cupcakes in the name of life!
