Carl and I made these delicious cupcakes today! I must say these were my favorite creation thus far.
They are a chocolate cupcake that has a graham cracker crust on the bottom, with chocolate chips and mini marshmallows in the middle, topped with a marshmallow buttercream frosting. We were wanting to make a perfect summertime cupcake, and whats more summery then S'mores!
P.P.S I just realized I never took a picture of my fresh strawberry buttercream frosting with white cake cupcakes I made two weeks ago. My favorite part was the frosting... it was AMAZING!

So I got two new icing tips this weekend and thought i would put them to use. These cupcakes are a devils food cake, with a new vanilla buttercream frosting I found which I think I like better then the last, topped with Oreo crumbs.... yummmm......! I think I'm getting better at frosting them, although you can't see with the crumbs.

On another baking adventure yesterday I attempted to make cupcakes. I wanted to try out using the icing tips and decorate them all cute. Well seeing as how I'd never used them they didn't look so cute. I was practicing different designs here and there not making and rhyme or reason to them, and by the time i was done I had used up all the cupcakes! So next time there will be a plan of action and they will be cute unlike these sad sad cupcakes!

Last night I was on my way home from work and BAM! Popped tire. Okay, lets take a few steps back. I was driving between Springville and Orem, where there is mucho construction of course. Dang those pot holes. Well i'm not sure if i exactly hit one or not, because it was dark, but i'm pretty sure i did. Then POP goes my tire, it was so loud it scared me. Now because all the lanes are all smushed together there was no lane to pull over too, so i had to turn on my emergency lights and drive 20 mph the mile until the exit. Once I exited my awesome husband came and changed my tire and put on the spare, which i had no idea how to do. It was freaking freezing outside, so he let me sit in the car, like the prince he is. This morning we got a new tire, and now all is well! End of Story!
