So, today is a picture day. I didn't take a picture of the pumpkin sheet cake, because well, sheet cakes are kind of boring. You can imagine it though. A lovely pumpkin sheet cake with cream cheese frosting. And I actually did a fairly decent job icing it. Thanks offset icing spatula. Totally worth my $3.
The cupcakes though, they were a thing of beauty. Black Forest filled cupcakes. With buttercream icing. When I was individually spooning each part of the cupcake into 24 cupcake papers I wasn't sure it was going to be worth it. Then I ate one of them. And it was totally worth it. So delicious. And then I iced them with the star tip instead of the regular round tip I usually use. Why did I not start doing this earlier? They totally look like they came from a bakery instead of my kitchen. So, without further ado, say hello to my pretty cupcakes.
Don't those just look delicious? I was so impressed with myself. I took way more than just three pictures. And I made my husband stop watching Burn Notice just to come check out my cupcakes.
And here's a sneak peak of my sewing project. Come back Monday for more baby shower details. It's going to be great. I may still be suffering from sewing related injuries this morning though. Two cuts on my thumb, two on my index finger. And I had to finally get a band aid. Sigh, someday I'll be better at handling pins without stabbing myself.
While I was sitting in the floor cutting out the pieces of my bunting I realized sitting in the floor cutting was probably not the cleverest idea I ever had. When I was in 6th grade I sliced my leg open with a pair of sewing scissors at dance camp. Oops. From now on I may have to be a grown up and sit at the table to cut. I'd hate to ruin a perfectly good pair of yoga pants. Anyway, the bunting I made....
Adorable, right! I totally love it and just keep staring at it. Obviously it's not still hanging from my fireplace because that would be a little weird. But it's making me think maybe next year I'll do a fall bunting to put up there. That could be cute. We'll see.
