WELCOME TO MY DAILY LIFE......

sometimes uneventful and other times unbelievable!

Two weeks ago while visiting Hilton Head Island, SC I started watching Cupcake Wars on television.  I really got into it and thought I might could get into cupcakes.  I've never been into baking and last Christmas made the decision to never bake at Christmas time again.  I'm famous for buying everything I need to bake...all the ingredients and so forth but then when it comes time to actually make whatever...I never do.  I get lazy and claim being too tired.  So after spending money on ingredients that I never used I decided to quit doing this year after year.  But after watching the cupcake wars I thought maybe I might enjoy making these instead of all the fancey cakes and desserts.  I mean how hard it is to mess up a cupcake?  I figured it would be easier to make small cakes then trying to make this perfect cake that isn't leaning or whopsided.  So in the last week or so I have bought two cupcake cookbooks, cute cupcake holders, decorator tips, and tons of ingredients.  

So today I decided to try my hand at cupcake baking! My first recipe was a chocolate/peanut butter recipe.  It was all made from scratch and so was the peanut butter icing.  I didn't taste them because I can't tolerate too much sugar or cakes.  I had hubby and son to try them and they said they were delicious.  Then I made a batch of a basic butter recipe then I used a can milk chocolate icing along with some colored sprinkles.  My sister in law Kim came over to do a taste test and loved them both.  So.....tomorrow I take what I've made to work to see what my co-workers have to say about them.  

My next kind of cupcake is going to be a key lime cupcake....with a key lime filling.  Yum....maybe I can figure out how to make margarita cupcakes....  :)
