Some of the best shots from this weekend

What a great weekend!

I created and baked 7 dozen cupcakes in 6 different varieties in less than 8 hours!

Here are some of the best photos from the shoot (all photos courtesy of Ronda Sells)

Comments from Co-workers

So my co-workers got a chance to try some of the cupcakes I made for the shoot yesterday and the reviews have been great - I thought I'd share them with you:
  • Renae, that cupcake was heaven! If you don't get that audition, they are crazy over there at the food network - good luck and thank you for the yummy goody :o)

I blame it on Food Network

When I read the post on my favorite cupcake blog Cupcakes Take the Cake, I got really excited - I immediately forwarded the post to my hubby and a few friends and I started planning how I was going to spend my long weekend baking some creations to photograph.

I "designed" last night and selected 6 creations to bake and decorate today and tomorrow. My friend Ronda Sells is going to take the photos for me tomorrow and I'll get my packet together to send in.

So what cupcakes am I creating?
  • candied sunflower and honey
  • chocolate covered kirsch
  • mojito
  • butter, scotch and rum
  • coffee, kahlua and cream
  • champagne dream mini wedding cakes
and there might be a surprise 7th item, but well see...

Stay posted for some pictures and notes and get ready to cheer me on!!!

Did you miss me?

I could fill this post with a ton of apologies for neglecting this blog for the last little while, and while I have some good reasons, I don't think it would serve either you , nor I, dear reader.

So with that in mind...HI! Good to see you again :)

I have some exciting new things cooking and I'm looking forward to sharing them with you soon.
