Frosting for the Cause | Chocolate Mint Mascarpone Cupcakes

I’ve been excited for this day to come since I signed up to post a recipe and a cancer awareness story at Frosting for the Cause. Although no one ever wants to see a friend struggle with cancer, I was honored to write my friend, Paulette’s story of hope; appropriately titled, “It’s Okay to be Freaked Out”.

Please take a few minutes to read Paulette’s story and learn about the project. The post also includes my recipe for Chocolate Mint Mascarpone Cupcakes.

You may also enjoy reading some of my favorites on the site from January and February: Doves of Hope by Frosting for the Cause’s founder and administrator, Paula Kelly-Bourque; sugar-rimmed  margarita cookies in Julie’s *Margarita* Sugar Cookies; lovely chocolate and peanut butter combo in Stephanie’s Chocolate Peanut Butter Whoopie! Pies; you will never forget these cigarette cookies in Callye’s *Nanny’s* Pecan Sandie Roll-Outs; a story that will touch your heart and make you cry in Amanda’s Chocolate Orange Sugar Cookies; a lot of detail in Robyn’s *Angry Birds* and *Thank You* Sugar Cookies; beautiful Nancy’s Ribbon Cookies with Butterfly Transfers; be inspired by this baker who is truly baking a difference in  Jen’s Black Forest Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting; and the coolest pink camouflaged cookies in Callye’s Camo Ribboned Cookies.

I hope this day finds you in good health, in good hands and in the hearts and minds of your family and friends. Go pink!



  1. Hi Staci ~ Just wanted to tell you how much I appreciated you participating in our Frosting for the Cause project. Paulette is a wonderfully brave woman and an inspiration to us all. It was sweet of you to share her story with us and I’m sure our readers will enjoy trying your beautiful cupcakes made in her honour. Thank you for being part of this and for baking a difference.

What's on your mind?
