Picture of Treats for Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month
GOT TEAL'D? Teal is the color of ovarian cancer awareness and the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition is encouraging everyone to raise awareness about the disease by "TEAL-ing". What better way to get teal'd than with sweets?

Step 1: Make Royal Icing Transfer Ribbons

To start "TEAL-ing" your sweets, you will need ovarian cancer survivor ribbons... the royal icing transfer kind! Mix up a batch of your favorite royal icing, use gel food coloring to make it the right color teal (I used a combination of Wilton Teal and Americolor Electric Blue), and print out your clip art for tracing. Use the flat side of a basket weave piping tip to trace your ribbon shape onto wax paper and sprinkle with sanding sugar while the icing is still wet. Once the icing has completely dried, your ovarian cancer survivor ribbon transfers can be used to decorate the sweets of your choice. (For more details on how to create royal icing transfers, see How To Transfer Designs Onto Cookies.)

I LOVE this, and will make the royal icing ribbons for sure. My daughter in law was diagnosed with a VERY rare form of ovarian cancer just 4 months after giving birth to my first grandson (who is going on 3 yr old now) She's still not out of the woods, and I'm so grateful to the Ovarian Cancer awareness group

Thanks for posting this

Mary, so sorry to hear about your daughter-in-law. I am sending her my positive thoughts to stay strong and fight hard. My mother-in-law was diagnosed a couple years ago so I am learning about all the work the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition is doing to get the word out about how important early detection is. I hope these treats and my blog post can help get the word out to just a few more people.

The brownies were a hit... very chocolatey and moist! Hope you get the chance to try them!
These are beautiful, made even more so for the reason behind them :)
Thanks, Penolophy! We needed these in case our sugar got low on the Walk to Break the Silence 5k :)
