Spreading the love

Today was sticky and sweet for many different reasons. The foremost being the fact that I made over 80 cupcakes today from scratch and didn't burn one batch. Hurray! I successfully made my first red velvet cupcakes as well as some vanilla and devils food cake.

I also whipped up some supremely delicious cream cheese and coconut butter cream icing. I couldn't help but lick my fingers, and by the end of the day I felt like I had sugary blankets on my teeth. Amelia certainly had her fair share of beaters to lick.

Amelia helping me wash the pile of dishes afterwards. Note the sweet, tiny, itty bitty two day old braids I managed to scrape together. Oh, and the tulips my thoughtful husband bought me. *love*

I will most likely have photos from my cupcake decorating party on Saturday - camera permitting of course.
