Kickass Cupcakes Giving Back to Rosie's Place

Photo Cred- Kickass Cupcakes
Have I talked to you guys before about my love affair with Kickass Cupcakes?  I know that I've mentioned some of the fun new products they've launched and how they were featured on the Food Network's Kid In A Candy Store.  Well today, I wanted to bring you news of a promotion that they are holding this week that I think is pretty incredible.

If you are from the Boston area, you are probably acquainted with a woman's shelter known as Rosie's Place.  Founded in 1974, Rosie's Place provides housing, meals, support, and assistance for job placement for homeless women.  The work that they do is truly life changing.  They are called upon often for long term support, and in emergency situations.  They assist women in getting back on their feet when disaster has struck.  Their mission is clear- tp provide an "oasis of hope and nourishment at Rosie’s Place".

Well this week, Kickass Cupcakes is doing what they can to support the great Rosie's Place.  Sara Ross, owner of Kickass Cupcakes, has created the Raspberry Rose Cupcake, a limited edition treat offered just this week, and all proceeds from the sale of these cupcakes will go directly to Rosies Place.

So what is a Raspberry Rose Cupcake?  A vanilla based and filled with a rose scented raspberry jam center with raspberry frosting.  These will be sold all week long, both at the Davis Square store location, and on board the Kickass Cupcake Truck (schedule below).  So head on over to your favorite source and pick up one of these amazing cupcakes!

Thanks for posting this. I hadn't heard about the Rosie's Place special cupcake but I'll make a point to stop by the truck or store today to buy a couple. I love hearing about these types of partnerships.
