"And The Only Reason For Making Honey Is So I Can Eat It" -Winnie The Pooh

Hello Readers,

Winnie The Pooh was one of my characters when I was a little girl as well as Barney and Baby Bop. When I found a recipe for honey cupcakes, I thought it sounded too good not to make, whether I missed this months cupcake hero competition or not. I would have loved to enter, but you know college consumes me. I haven't even been able to go see my cousin that lives 15 miles away when I normally see her at least once a week! Other than being busy at school, I have been getting ready for Halloween. This will be the first year that I won't be able to see my mom on her birthday (Halloween) and she's turning 50! Woah-ho! She will be in Terlingua, Tx getting ready for the International Chili Champsionship (CASI thing).

You all know that I will be a chef this year, but do you know what Charlie is going to be? My 120 lb chocolate lab? A shark! He looks adorable, doesn't he? He went to a halloween bash at PetSmart today for a costume competition and won 4th place, that's my boy.

Anyway, back to the cupcakes. I made these smashing cupcakes, and I tried to play with the frosting since I really only know how to pipe the basic design onto cupcakes. They didn't come out too pretty, but they are mighty tasty. I decided to use blue sprinkles for ADPi since our colors are blue and white. I am going to have to make cupcakes for ADPi in a few weeks and I haven't decided which ones to make yet, maybe these!

I hope y'all have a fantastic weekend and be sure to tell me what you are dressing up as for Halloween!

Mintly Twisted

Hello everyone!

I am so very sorry that it has been so long since I blogged last. I have been very busy at school and I've also been a wee bit sick the past couple of weeks. Since I moved into my beautiful yellow house, I have made many different cupcakes. Cappuccino, Margarita, Snickerdoodle, Strawberry's and Cream, and Blueberry. I can't think of anymore off the top of my head but I could ask my sous chef, Sherilyn. I love living with a bunch of girls that actually enjoy my cupcake addiction. They actually WANT me to make cupcakes! Over the summer, I have a feeling my parents got a tad bit annoyed with the oven always going and cupcakes shoved into their faces.

Yesterday I decided to make chocolate cupcakes with a hint of mint. I actually decided on these because my roommates birthday was about a month ago and she asked for these cupcakes and I just never got around to it. Therefore when I made these cupcakes, I made sure she knew that they were specifically for her. She ended up loving them and saying they were the best ones I've ever made. (Of course that put a huge smile on my face) Anyway, you remember the last time I blogged about my dog stealing cupcakes EVERYTIME I make them? Little theif did it again. Poor Kerry lost 5 cupcakes and Charlie (my chocolate lab) ate the chocolate cupcakes with the paper and everything! He knew he was bad, he ran to his kennel with his tail in between his legs.

I hope everything is going well with my lovely readers. Anyone getting excited about Halloween yet? I have already picked out my costume and it is ADORABLE! Did you expect me to get a chef costume? I guess so, but it is so perfect! Let me know what you're going to be for Halloween! I want to know what my fabulous readers are going to dress up as.

As always, Tootles!
