Sure April brings a crop of fresh vegetables and fruits, but it’s also very important because the month brings attention to raising awareness for Autism. As many as one in 110 children are affected by autism, a developmental disorder affecting the brain’s social and communication abilities. There are many intensive treatment programs available, and this month serves as a platform to raise awareness and educate others.

Participation is key in helping spread Autism awareness, and you can do your part by purchasing a cupcake from Frosted Cupcakery. Visit them at either their Hollywood & Highland (1200 N. Highland Ave., Hollywood) or Belmont Shore (4817 E. 2nd St., Long Beach) locations and purchase the very special blueberry lemon cake with lemon cream cheese icing. Frosted Cupcakery has been actively involved in the autism awareness cause, and 20 percent of the proceeds go towards the Autism Speaks organization.  

The cupcake is only $2.95 and features real blueberries inside. It’s so good, especially against the lemon-flavored base. Topped off with a whipped lemon cream cheese frosting and bright blue chocolate puzzle piece, it’s almost too pretty to bite. But bite it and love it you will! The special cupcake, along with the other 17 flavors Frosted Cupcakery offers, is baked fresh throughout the day.

So make sure you visit Frosted Cupcakery this month and do your part to help bring awareness to Autism. Nothing’s better than eating for a good cause!
