My first test at My Cake School

 WOWIE!  What a great response to the giveaway!   It was so awesome to be featured on craftgossip.com.  I am such a huge fan of Meaghan Mountford over at http://www.thedecoratedcookieblog.com/ and http://www.craftgossip.com/ so THANKS!! 

 Stay tuned to see her featured as a therapist in the upcoming weeks - and of course I will be giving away her book, Cookie Sensations!  I can't wait for her new book to come out.

I just wanted to say thanks to the followers and the nice comments.  I was pretty excited on Sunday when I was reading all the posts!

I feel like I need some sort of disclaimer -- so here we go:

**I DO NOT HAVE A CUPCAKE PhD**

By NO means am I any sort of decorating pro.  The only thing you probably stand to learn here is some sarcastic one-liners!!

But rest assured I have made it my duty to point you in the direction of those with the golden piping bag for the real tutelage.

To be honest, I am a suburan living, working woman with a husband and kid who needed her own 'thing' short of a looney bin and so here I am WORLD!!

I am sure a lot of you can relate. 

I am going to keep the giveaway open until Thursday so don't forget to comment. 

Here is some of my very FIRST "fancy pancy" cupcakes inspired by My Cake School (http://www.mycakeschool.com/). 

 I made them for my annual VD party. 



Hey!  That's short for Valentines Day!  One of my favorite days of the year...consider yourself invited to next years annual soiree'. 



Awwww sooo pretty!!

The Eiffel Tower cupcake topper was purchased from TomKat Studio.  If you have never visited their site, you have my permission to leave NOW and go:  http://www.thetomkatstudio.com/.

You back yet???  See what I mean, it is just mesmerizing. 

I love the little cupcake topper I piped using melted candy....I was so proud of that cupcake on a cupcake!!


 

The only little guy that got his own picture!

Has anyone ever made a cupcake that they were so proud of and literally about had an anxiety attack at the thought of someone eating it????

Me???????  Ummmmm  HECK YA! 

It was almost like I was waiting for the Queen of England to come in and declare this little cupcake hers!

Well, she didn't get too because one of the teenage boys ended up downing it in one bite.....BUT with a smile so that is all that really mattered, RIGHT....RIGHT??? 

Right. 

What matters is that you add something sweet to your day, your week, your life. 

Cheers and Cupcake Jeers!
