KitchenAidlogo3x2BENTON HARBOR, Mich.-Cook for the Cure, a partnership between KitchenAid and Susan G. Komen, is offering a number of ways for cooks and food enthusiasts to support the fight against breast cancer during this month’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month.

On Oct. 1, KitchenAid debuted 10,000 Cupcakes, One Great Cause, which encourages cooks to create a cupcake recipe, take a picture of the finished product and share it on Twitter or Instagram using the hashtags #10000cupcakes and #donate. Throughout this month, KitchenAid said it will donate $1 for each cupcake photo that is shared, up to $10,000.

KitchenAid is also expanding its Cook for the Cure collection with a ceramic bowl for the five-quarter Stand Mixer. This white bowl is decorated with light and dark pink polka dots, features a pouring spout and is dishwasher- and microwave-safe.

KitchenAid also recently debuted seven- and 11-piece cutlery sets in a raspberry ice colorway, a bold and bright shade of pink, for a limited time only. The sets are made of German-manufactured steel that undergoes a precise ice-hardening treatment, which uses a series of heating and cooling patterns to strengthen corrosion resistance and flexibility. Suggested retail prices are $799.99 for the seven-piece set and $1,199.99 for the 11-piece set, and both will be available throughout October.

    Many expected 2016 would be a banner year, but the political and economic climate softened consumer confidence. It was also a year consumers spent more lavishly on home remodeling rather than decorating.
