Seriously, It Might Be Turning into an Obsession.




So, let's talk some more about cupcakes. Remember that baking post from this weekend? These are the end result: Pink and turquoise cupcakes with red accents, decorated with the helpful assistance of Mary Victoria, sis-in-law-extraordinaire. They turned out EXACTLY as I had hoped they would, and once again fulfilled my need to make pretty little cupcake-works-of-art. They tasted amazing, too!
Now for the really cool part:

Can you believe it? All my cupcake dreams have been validated by my favorite cupcake website! I was scrolling through the site during a 3 a.m. baby feeding, and my half-asleep eyes lighted on that picture and I literally had to shake myself to see if I was dreaming... How cool!! I had uploaded my pretty cupcake pictures to Flickr, including to a couple of cupcake groups, and they noticed them among several dozen other cupcake pictures that day. So. I am tickled. I am delighted with my new hobby. Come on over and we'll make another batch. What color shall they be this time?

  9. Reading this really made me want to eat the computer. looking at the picture, I longed for the perfectness of a cupcake. Sadly, in observance of lent (just because I like the concept) I am giving up deserts and sweets...no cupcake for me:(

  11. Okay, I'm learning I should NOT check your blog when I'm hungry! :) Seriously, those look amazing. You and Mary should open a little shop and make cupcakes and cookies! Wouldn't that just be a dream come true? I seriously can picture it now. Yum!

  12. Elsie loves your cupcakes! Making (and eating) them is a favorite of hers. We got her the book Pinkalicious for her birthday recently...you'd enjoy it! Anyway, I need to know where you got your cupcake caddy...the one I have is only for a single layer, and I'm loving the double decker!

    Those cupcakes are beautiful! You did a fantabulous job in cooking/decorating/photographing. It simply makes my mouth water. ^_^. Jewlia gave me this blogger thing to get in contact with you and I thought I would drop by to say Hi and that we really miss your amazingness! (Also, Noah has the most PRECIOUS eyes. He is so beautiful and I saw those videos you made on a Noah-personalized page...you guys love him so much. It's just so cute.!.)

  14. Wow... not only are they beautiful, but you can yell you had fun - yet another outlet for your creativity :-)

    I think some of my "fun money" needs to go to cake decorating supplies :-) Meanwhile, I wish I was close to help you with your new cupcake obsession (both making and eating)

    And congrats on getting noticed on your cupcake guru site.

    Love you
