Seriously Workin'

I had 2 cupcake jobs last week...I know, right? It was amazing. I mean, sure...it was for one of my best friends...and her mom. But still! Two jobs! I'm full on a cupcake maker, yo!


Here's a few photos of the ones I did for A. I made her a 3 Vanilla with Vanilla Bean Cream Cheese icing and a chocolate on chocolate.




























I'm still searching for the perfect Chocolate cupcake...any ideas out there? I'm going to try and convert my grandmother's Hot Fudge Cake into a cupcake...we'll see. In the meantime, keep those Seriously Cupcake orders comin'! Know someone having a birthday/anniversary/bad day? Do they live in or around Houston, Texas?! ...You know who to call.

Finger Finish

I have been obessed with Olympic swimming since 1992 in Barcelona when Jenny Thompson was at the height of her career and, along with Summer Sanders, pretty much inspired me quit theatre (briefly) to pursue my dream of being a gold-medal swimmer (apparently they want you to actually know how to "swim"...commies...).

I've watched a LOT of swimming races since then...but I have never - NEVER - seen a race like the Men's 4x100 Freestyle Relay last night. Holy crap...I couldn't sleep last night, I was so excited. And my head is still reeling...and my heart is till glowing Olympic gold.

Now, come on, Mr. Phelps!! Six more to go!!

Basket Full O' Cake

I'm done with my cake classes. We only did one cake this whole month...and it was quite a cake. Or it was supposed to be. Every week we did some flowers that, for the final, we were supposed to use. The cake was just supposed to be an overflowing basket of flowers. However, I had, some, *ahem* technical difficulties with my flowers...like maybe most of them broke before I could get them on the cake. So, this cake has a third of the flowers that I was supposed to use.


But in my opinion, it was gonna be all tacky and whatnot with all those flowers anyway...so there!

Let's take a closer look at that basket weave, shall we? ...Mostly because my hand throbbed for days afterwards and so you darn well better LOVE IT!!!

Ah, yeah...icing basket weavin', yo.
