Movember Stashcakes

It's that time of year again...Movember!  Or, moustache season as I often refer to it.

Chances are at least one of the men in your life is currently growing a moustache in support of men's health issues.  It's amazing how many guys I personally know that are taking part in this fundraising effort.  Nicely done boys!  Being it's now the 12th of the month, hopefully the 'staches are filling in nicely and gone are the creepy looking 'lip sweaters.' 

Here is a short recap of what this campaign is all about for those of you unfamiliar.  To find out more visit  You can learn how to donate and other ways to get involved with this wonderful cause.

About The Campaign
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of moustaches on thousands of men’s faces, in Canada and around the world. With their “Mo’s”, these men raise vital funds and awareness for men's health, specifically prostate cancer.
On Movember 1st, guys register at with a clean-shaven face. For the rest of the month, these selfless and generous men, known as Mo Bros, groom, trim and wax their way into the annals of fine moustachery. Supported by the women in their lives, Mo Sistas, Movember Mo Bros raise funds by seeking out sponsorship for their Mo-growing efforts.
Mo Bros effectively become walking, talking billboards for the 30 days of November. Through their actions and words, they raise awareness by prompting private and public conversation around the often ignored issue of men’s health.
At the end of the month, Mo Bros and Mo Sistas celebrate their gallantry and valor by either throwing their own Movember party or attending one of the infamous Gala Partés held around the world by Movember, for Movember

Okay, so how do the pancakes come into play?  Quite simply actually.  The are in the shape of 'stashes.  Not only were these fun to make and decorate, but they were just as tasty to eat.
