Cannoli Cupcakes & Frosting for the Cause

Happy Friday everyone!!  Today, I have the awesome opportunity to guest post for Frosting for the Cause.  Frosting for the Cause is a yearlong project of 365 bloggers who have committed to blog about a cupcake or sugar cookie recipe and to share a story about a woman in their life who has been affected by cancer.  The 365 food bloggers have also committed to donating $25 to the American Cancer Society; that equals $9,125!  This is an incredible opportunity to help raise money for cancer research!  Click here if you’d like to volunteer.

Also, stop by their website to read my guest post about my incredible Aunt Mary and to see how I made these mouth watering Cannoli Cupcakes!

Are you a fan of Cannoli?  I like to keep my filling traditional, Italian-style.  Do you keep your filling traditional or do you like to spice it up?
