Cancer Fighting Cupcakes for American Cancer Society on AOL's Monster Help Day

Thank you to AOL's Monster Help Day and the American Cancer Society for including me in this morning's Cancer Fighting Cupcakes event. It was a great event for a great cause, and Harlem's own Tonnie Rozier of Tonnie's Minis provided fantastic cupcakes. After icing some cupcakes with AOL's volunteers, fellow co-hosts Jill Zarin of Bravo's "Real Housewives of New York City", AOL CEO Tim Armstrong, and I did a blind taste test of four cupcakes Rob Shuter, the "Naughty But Nice" columnist from MC'd. All three of us chose the fourth cupcake, the Very Berry Cupcake!

You can make the cupcakes, too! AOL has provided the recipe online to make your own batch of Very Berry Cupcakes.

You can also help out by visiting Monster Help's website. If you visit the website and post an update to your Twitter account using the Tweet button provided, AOL will donate 26 cents to the Monster Help Day Charity of your choice.

Welcome To Harlem Tonnie's Minis Cupcakes

Tonnie's Minis Cupcakes have relocated from the West Village to Lenox Avenue, bringing sweet delights to Harlem residents. Serving baked-to-order cupcakes, Tonnie's focuses on moist cake and not-to-sweet cream. Tonnie's joins a group of new bakeries opening up in Harlem, including an outpost of Levain Bakery. When Tonnie Rozier started baking at age 7 in Harlem's Polo Grounds, he caught the dessert bug. While playing college basketball and at his former job as a social worker, Tonnie baked and sold his creations.

Ranging from huge to tiny, Tonnie's cupcakes come in all sizes for all appetites. It's exciting to see such great shops coming to the neighborhood. Check out Tonnie's between 123rd and 124th on Lenox, and read more about the store here.
