This past weekend...

I just realized within the last 10 days I have had about 400 cupcakes in my house.

400.

That just blows my mind.

I'm not complaining, I promise!!

I already showed you the 300 I did the weekend before last. I didn't take pictures of the ones I made for my parents this past weekend (they were the to-die-for peanut butter mini's with chocolate frosting) but I do have other ones to share, including a little cupcake experiment with turned out to be a love it or hate it recipe that I'll tweak the next time I make it.

First I will share with you the experimental cupcakes I did. French Toast and Bacon. Yes, bacon. They are paired with a Peaches and Cream cupcake for an unintentional breakfast - they kids told me the peach ones look like a "dippy egg".

Those were for Friday. Saturday morning I cranked out the ones for my parents and then started on my order for Sunday.

Sunday's order was for Malted Milk, Triple Chocolate and Chocolate Peanut Butter cupcakes. These are full size cupcakes which was a change for me since 9 times out of 10 I'm making mini ones.

This morning, my new business cards arrived! This time I ordered them with all pictures of cupcakes I've done. Not that I don't love the last ones I ordered, I'll keep those around. I just forgot to put my email address on the last ones (I had been writing it on there when I handed them out). I was really excited about these!

I think that just about wraps everything up here that's happened lately!
