These are some baby cupcakes i made for a collegue who's last day was on friday. I used the magnolia bakery recipe for the cupcakes and frosting. I only had a recipe for the vanilla frosting, so I modified it a bit to add the chocolate. most importantly, i got a canister of four different types of sprinkles whick included dinosaur and star sprinkes as well as the standard sprinkles. i had great fun making them and a bit too much wine which resulted in a lovely evening. my collegue was really touched, and i'm so happy to have put a smile on her face.
i had a lovely weekend visiting my mother who lives a couple of hours away. now that my mother has received her birthday present, i can show you a picture of her gift:
she'd had a smaller knitting needle roll for awhile, but she had mentioned too me she felt it was too small. this one is almost twice the size of her other one and even has room for her circular needles.
short post this evening. since i was gone all weekend, i have lots to do to prepare for the week. i'm still feeling incredibly overwhelmed right now by all the things i want to do. there just aren't enough hours.
anyway, i hope you had a lovely weekend and adjust to the time change as well as one can.
