Life is Just a Bowl of Cherries!

You gotta love a three day weekend and this has been a great one! Friday, the UPS man brought me my new cupcake and cookie boxes (see the picture below). I love packaging things up all pretty so I couldn't wait to get them. Here's where I found them.

Friday night was also kinda stormy so it was a great night for baking. (I LOVE cozy, stormy, baking evenings at home!!!!!) I tried a new recipe for Italian Cream Cupcakes from the Cupcake Doctor. I topped them with cream cheese frosting and decorated most of them for a wedding with gumpaste flowers and royal icing accents (not a real wedding, just building my portfolio and trying new things). The rest are decorated with some candy raspberries I found at the candy shop and gumpaste flowers.

Saturday was the annual Memorial Day Flee Market in a nearby town so my mom and I went to that. I found a bunch of cute things for myself and for my etsy store. I even managed to get all the vintage stuff shown in the picture listed! (I'm better at buying the stuff than getting it sold!)

Unfortunately, after all that fun, I'll have to devote the rest of today to getting organized, laundry and putting my house put back together!
