This past week...

So, I've been busy, busy, busy!

I never finished the blog entry about the blackberry upside down cake. Here is the finished product (with homemade sweetened whipped cream - not that icky cool whip stuff!).

In the meantime, Dave had a week off of work (I love him dearly but I'm always glad to get back to my own routine!). We spent the week doing things around town. Movies, mini-golf, watching the horse races at the Downs.

This past weekend was a packed one for me. I spent it making 300 cupcakes for a friend's family reunion. I made Margarita, Red Velvet, Chocolate/Vanilla, Vanilla/Chocolate, Grasshopper, and Creamsicle mini cupcakes. I also hung around with them and took pictures while I was there so they wouldn't have to worry about who had a camera.

Until today, it had been 3 days since I last baked a cupcake. I think I was going through withdrawl, LOL!. I baked today for Dave's work birthday food day tomorrow. I had a couple new recipes to try out and got to test them out when the boys and I got our haircuts this afternoon. Both cupcakes were a bit hit!

The cupcake on the left is a Peaches and Cream cupcake - but both kids told me it looked like a "dippy egg". It's a vanilla peach cake with a vanilla cream cheese frosting and peach puree on top. The cupcake on the left is French Toast and Bacon. LOVE it. That whipped maple buttercream frosting is to die for. Seriously. I made an untentional breakfast, I guess, LOL!

I have new business cards on order from again. I just love that site and the half sized cards are just too cute. This time, I got them all with cupcake photos that I have done.

I think that about wraps up this week! I'll post again sometime this weekend, I hope, because I have more cupcakes to make this weekend!
