Just a southern gal from Georgia who has a real problem with baking. And by problem I mean, I can't help myself! :D I am married to the love of my life, he puts up with me so well! I am mother to the most adorable, yet tough little boy. And mother to a most beautiful full of attitude, little girl. I can't forget about our 4-legged family members! Our terrier Lucy, Our Great Dane Milo, our mutty mutt Ellie and our cats Abbey and Sammy! I LOVE to bake and I am trying to start up my own cupcakery. I love vintage anything! My blog started out as a blog for my cupcakes, now it has turned into an everyday into the life of "ME" blog. Life is not perfect and wonderful all the time, you will hear me gripe, bahahaha, it isn't all cupcakes. Just a heads up per say. :D Hope your reading experience is enjoyable!

Sunny Days, Sweepin the clouds away.....

Can you tell me how to get, how to get to Sesame Street!!! :)


  My kids were watching Sesame Street this morning, for the first time, EvER. So, I felt inspired to make some cupcakes inspired by the characters. Went into the kitchen after lunch, during nap time, and started to whip up some double chocolate kuppies. These are delicious! Then my mind started to go nuts with ideas. First, I thought, I would make fondant faces.... Nah, too time consuming. Then I thought, OK, maybe I will just draw them on fondant with edible pens. Nah, too lame.

  So then I just decided to pipe on faces. Sounds easy, but truth be told, the only thing I am used to piping, is a swirl. :) Off I went to color icing and to cut out fondant facial features, eyes, noses, eyebrows, beaks. Finished piping on my sad little faces, ready to assemble, and CRAP. They need mouths! So, had to go back and color more fondant {and my hands obviously}, black. I really should use gloves for that. Then, out come the mouths, and onto the faces. OK. They are coming together better, but something is missing. YES. Cookies for The Cookie Monster. CRAP.

  Do I really want to go and get more fondant, color it brown (or try to), then cut out and shape ever so lovely into eaten cookies? NO. OK. New idea?! Think Think Think. *Proverbial Light bulb* Ah yes, I DO have kids, and they DO have crappy cereal, I allow them to eat sometimes. Cookie Crisp cereal, here I come. So, I pull out 6 cookies and on they went. Well, I was complete, now on to photography. Here is the finished project, hope you enjoy the photos!
