Changing Lives One Cupcake At A Time

I had to post a picture of something that a friend of mine who reads my blog just dropped off.  She was inspired by these bad boys that I made when I went to the radio station, but look what she did with the sugar embellishment!

She colored the burnt sugar with red food coloring - the chocolate frosting is homemade (because I know these things) and it's topped with chocolate shavings.  Not. Too. Shabby.  Thanks for sharing Nicol!  

Guess what else?  Another reader made some to take to a Valentine's Party.  That's true love, people.  (Way to go Katie!)  Also, people other than 3rd graders have Valentine's Day parties?

And I thought I was being crafty when I made sugar cookies with pink frosting. You Colorado girls are just so impressively domestic!

Yes, it is a "grown-up" Valentine's Day party that a couple in our ward throws every year. We have pizza and diet coke and end up saying things that we later regret. Every year we have a gift exchange and every year someone throws in a naughty enough gift to make everyone in the room blush a little. And every year one of the high priests makes enough jokes about that gift to make us all very uncomfortable.

Thanks for the link!

Those are divine looking.
I made sugar cookies today too. Second time in my entire life!

Happy VD!

That's it!! The next post on my blog is going to be about cupcakes so people will start dropping them off at my house, too!
