Mother, Baker, Cake Creator!
This morning, at 8:30am, my High Ratio shortening arrived! YAY!!!!!
The poor box looks like it’s been through a war! But everything inside was in tact!
I’m thrilled that it finally arrived! (finally… as in 3 days after I ordered it… yes, i’m THAT impatient). At any rate… here it is. And there it will sit until next week, when I have time to play with it. So stay tuned for more info!
Today was also a great day for mini-cupcakes! My aunt was having some company, so I decided to bake up some mini cupcakes for the occasion. I made 3 dozen vanilla cupcakes with vanilla Swiss meringue buttercream and 3 dozen red velvet with cream cheese frosting.
I also figured out that 4 mini cupcakes are the equivalent to 1 regular cupcake. Did you know that? I had no idea. It never once dawned on me to figure it out. So… now I know. And now you know. You’re welcome.
I had such a great time tonight though. I love watching people enjoy my baking. Making people happy with something so simple as a cupcake makes me happy. And I love talking to
people adults. After being a stay at home mom for almost 2 years now, it’s nice talking to get out every now and then and have real conversations that don’t revolve around Bubble Guppies or Toy Story.
So tomorrow I will be home all day baking up some regular sized cupcakes for a charity event for breast cancer. The event is hosted by Stand For The Cause with all procedes going to Avon Walk For Breast Cancer. I am so thrilled to be a part of this. Please take a moment to check them out.
I can not wait to post all about the cupcakes for breast cancer! I have so much to say and a few people to thank. Stay tuned… I will probably post either Thursday night or Friday. XOXO Thanks for taking the time to stop by and read my ramblings!
