Extra Cupcakes Extra Frosting

   Cupcakes, two times this week and now I have two times the extras. When I make cupcakes I only frost the ones I need. This past week I had a request for chocolate and red velvet cupcakes 20 of one and 17 the other. Leaving me with extras. I freeze the ones I don't need which is good for the times when my husband does his Home Teaching; he can bring some to his appointments. Did I mention I also have frosting too that I have to use at some point. So today I have chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese and chocolate frosting swirled together on top with some mini M&Ms.

Lady Liberty Chocolate Cupcakes

  So when your husband asks you to make cupcakes for his college history class party what do you say? "Aren't you to old for a party?" Well my daughter says, "Make them your self". But I didn't want him to be the only one who did not bring any thing to the party.
 Here is Lady Liberty she is part of our great history. Just think of all those huddled masses from all over Europe who were so happy to see her in the New York harbor.

Rainbows and Airplanes

   Its that time of year when the young women and young men have a fundraising dinner. We also have a silent auction for services, baked goods and other items. My daughter and I were in charge of the dessert table and cart. Emma-Lea pushed the cart around the room selling desserts. She said it was a lot of fun. I made Airplane cupcakes and Pot of gold at the end of the rainbow cupcakes along with mini Heath bar trifle cups for the dessert table. I also made a large Heath bar trifle for the auction.
