I am excited to write about all things I am passionate about...and some, well, that I may not be passionate about. But all things are happening in this LIFE. And, I want to document and have accountablity to living life with intention. And so it goes...

Cupcake TOP TEN.

The Top Ten Reasons I Made These Cupcakes Today

10.) I had leftover sweetened condensed milk, remember?

9.) It is a beautiful frozen fog outside and it just feels like a baking kind of day

8.) I am trying to make Landon into a good husband and teaching him to work in the kitchen

7.) Landon is in NEED of an activity and I'm not up for football or basketball at the moment

6.) I have MANY cake mixes I need to use

5.) I forgot to give our piano teacher a Christmas gift and the cupcakes seem fitting

4.) We have piano lessons TODAY

3.) I am addicted to this and I am procrastinating getting on the treadmill and elliptical

2.) Steve will be at a dinner meeting so bologna sandwiches are up for the dinner menu

1.) There are just certain weeks of the month when a girl just needs some chocolate!!!

I must admit that I DID NOT make the homemade yellow cake in Yellow Cupcakes with Sticky Chocolate Icing. I did, however, make the Sticky Chocolate Icing and plopped it on top of my cupcakes made out of a German Chocolate Cake Mix. As I said before, I have many cake mixes I need to use up (none of which were yellow darnit), and I did not have any cake flour on hand which Yellow Cupcakes with Sticky Chocolate Icing calls for. I have made this icing before and topped a yellow cake. So, a very chocolately cupcake is what Landon and I came up with for today. And frankly, I'll take all the chocolate I can get today.
