Cupcakes!!!!

Cupcakes and chickens, two of my favorite things. But first, let us talk about the cupcakes. I know today was the Superbowl and I appreciate that but Missy and I had better things to do. Today was the cupcake test run. It went really well and we had a great time. We ended up with two different kinds of little beauties....







Red Velvet with homemade cream cheese frosting and "from scratch" white cake with a cream cheese, cinnamon, cocoa and whipped cream frosting...The cocoa is very light so you can color it, which we did....


They both taste wonderful, but I think dressing them up all pretty makes them taste even better!









All wrapped up and ready to give as a "sweet little I love you"...Nothing says it better than a cupcake...












Except maybe a chicken or two! Missy, my blogging friend has chickens...In fact she has a little chicken house in her dining room for her miniatures right now..It is too cold to have them outside and I was absolutely enchanted with them. The tiny little rooster even crowed a couple of times. Why do chickens make me happy?














I dont know, I guess I am just strange like that.....gonna go eat a cupcake....night!

Gorgeous cupcakes. A plain cupcake is nothing but the way you decorated and packaged yours makes them a wonderful gift. Great job!

I'm not a big fan of chickens. I do love them as stuffies or on quilts just not in real life. But hey, to each his own. If chickens make you happy then you should be around them as much as you can.

Little Messy Missy said...

I ate so many cupcakes I am begining to feel like a cup cake...hahahahaha!

Julie Harward said...

I love both of them too...your cupcake run looks like a try at Cupcake Wars..have you seen that show? As for the chickens..they are so cute, amazing that she has them in her house! Stay warm and healthy! ;D

Sandy Ang said...

Loving your red cupcakes. And the wonderful way you packaged them for valentine's day !

Doris Sturm said...

Wow! What a big batch of red cupcakes and I like them too - it's like having your own little cake all for yourself.

My Grandma had a pet chicken when she was a young girl growing up in Berlin, Germany. She tied a string around its leg and took her for a walk...she said everyone stopped and stared. We always had chickens when I was growing up and other than one bad incident with a mean rooster, I have always enjoyed having them around... and I do enjoy eggs now and then.
