cupcakes and other goodies

I took a little break from baking this week (but only a few days, I promise, LOL). Last weekend I did a chocolate chip cheesecake (with a devil's food crust) and chocolate mint bars to take to a picnic at my parents' house because my uncle was in from Chicago. After that, I took a break all week, until yesterday when I made snickerdoodle cupcakes. They're a cinnamon sugar cupcake with a cinnamon buttercream frosting.

The kids also had their first day of school this week. So far, so good! *crosses fingers*

There's a story missing here but I'm still pretty peeved about that, so I'll save it for another time (it involves some 9 billion year old man hitting my parked car twice in the school parking lot).
