A little cupcake with your frosting…

I have a support system…well let’s call it a sprinkles supplier (My Mom), along with empty plates to fill (for my Dad). Both will have something sweet a few times a day if offered, fresh baked, even better.

Here is our latest baking session…ginger bit cookies, chocolate chip cookies, sundae toppings themed decorated cupcakes plus what was left of the batter to make a mini cake.

My Mom enjoys the heaps of frosting and lots of sprinkles on our decorated cupcakes.

Dad prefers a lighter layer of sugar…

mini cake for 2…

A waffle cone was broken for the finishing touch. It absorbed moisture overnight. So if you are recreating this design, add the cone bits right before serving if you want the crunch.

Natasha’s Kitchen chocolate cupcake recipe is the winner with a soft crumb. Here is a link to her video: https://youtu.be/OS3mw-_kTkI

Inspiration to decorate these cupcakes came from Chaleese Bakes Cakes: https://youtu.be/ulixexbTsn4

I’ll share the story about how my cupcake decorating relates to my stamping business in an upcoming post.

Until the next bake!

You’ve Got Mail!

I love stuffing my mailbox with envelopes knowing they are going to cross the country and globe and land in my favorite persons’ mailboxes. Leave a guess as to how many envelopes I can fit in my mailbox in the comments section.

I’ll share how many went out in this mailing in a few days so people have a chance to leave some guesses. I’ll mail a greeting card to the person that guesses correctly or is the closest to the number. Good Luck Friends!

Taking Orders for Beauty of the Earth and Bloom Where You’re Planted Kits in the Mail

I have my next round of Kits in the Mail designed. Writing the blog post advertising the designs was next on my agenda. So it’s time to cross this task off my to do list and get it done right now!

I am stepping into autumn by creating with the Beauty of the Earth suite…

While still enjoying the bountiful summer patterns from the Bloom Where You’re Planted suite…

These greeting cards are vest folded with the personal greeting removed from the top opening. All supplies are included in the kits except adhesives, sentiment stamps and ink pads. Please note that patterned papers may be substituted as I work through my stock. Stampin’ Up! packages the patterned papers for customers, generally 2 sheets of each design per package with 6 designs per pack. Which makes kit stuffing a bit challenging, especially when I use large pieces of 2 cards per sheet such as in this design.

I’ll share the kit assembly during the September 11, 2021 One of a Kind Facebook event. In case you are not on Facebook, I’ll email you the video link as well after it publishes to my Youtube channel. Thank you for ordering kits with me!

These kits are sold out! Please consider the next rounds of kits, Pinwheel Tower cards, by clicking this link. Thanks!
