I {Heart} Cupcakes

and since the kids were home yesterday, I thought is was the perfect time to try out The Perfect Cupcake (using a mix) recipe I found at Tidymom.
I had an assistant who was more than willing to lick the bowl along with me bake cupcakes with me.

and another assistant who decided he needed to have the dozen of eggs on the counter and climbed up while we were filling up the cupcake pans.

needless to say, he wasn't very happy when I removed him from the eggs and refused to participate in any more cupcake baking.

I'm very happy to say that The Perfect Cupcake does live up to its name! And to make it even better, it was no harder or longer to do than using a cake mix and following the instructions on the box. The batter was much thicker than the batter made when just following the directions-noticably thicker. Taste is yummy, yummy!! I cooked mine a tidge too long so next time I'll grab them out of the oven a bit sooner. Other than that......quick, easy, delicious=no more just following the instructions on the box for me!

The ladies at eighteen25 have started a new linky called Snapshots of Life.

They post a specific time of the day on Wednesday for you to then take a picture on Thursday to then link up on Friday. Cute!

This week the time was 10:00 a.m.

Usually it would just be my son and I at home at 10, but since the kids had no school yesterday, at 10:00 a.m. my 10 year old was getting ready to go on a bike ride with her friend. At about 9:55, I was none too happy that my husband had hung all the bikes up in the garage (still don't understand why but I'm not asking) and I had to finangle to get hers down!

Linking up to eighteen25 Snapshots of Life, I'm Loving It at Tidymom, Round Robin with Amy at Keeping up with The Schultz Family and Weekend Bloggy Reading with Amanda at Serenity Now

Sooo funny my husband has been wanting a hanging bike rack for a year and I refuse... I actually like to "ride" my bike and there would be no way my 5"3 butt could get it down it if it was hanging!

I need to check out this cupcake recipe. I made 48 cupcakes for school Thursday night, so this is definitely a recipe that I'd use. I'm visiting from Amanda's party.

Brandi said...

sounds like a good recipe! Can't wait to try it

Next week I will have a tutorial on how to make those bow holders...I plan to make one for every little girl I know for Christmas, they are SUPER inexpensive to make and super easy!
