Absence

So I had big plans for posting after I did my last post. However the day after I wrote that within a matter of hours my grandma went into major surgery and then passed away. Needless to say it's kind of thrown life into a whirl wind. Thankfully we had already planned a trip home (St. Louis) for my cousins wedding. So instead of posting I got to help with funeral arrangements, and then days later make 150 monogrammed wedding cookies and play wedding co-ordinator for the day.

Life has been a little crazy.

I'm looking forward to getting back into my routine which includes posting and cupcakes. It's been almost two weeks since I've made cupcakes y'all!

These sugar cookies are all well and good (I'm doing another wedding with them this weekend) but cupcakes are my thang. And I look forward to getting back to it.

So while I'm still unpacking, doing laundry and processing, here is some thing to give me a few days:




I don't typically do cupcake cakes like this. I think I do a better job when they are flat and I can do my buttercream magic. But it was for a dear friend whose daughter I adore and is one of my sons close friends....and I just wanted to do some thing fun. Is it immaculate-no, but is it whimsical and fun yes, and that was perfect for the birthday girl!



They were double vanilla cupcakes
