Organic Carrot Cupcakes with Homemade Cream Cheese frosting

My next work of food art will be a carrot cupcake with a twist. I will be researching recipes and putting my own spin on them. I hope to develop a cupcake that is definitive of my style but also I would like to create a cupcake that is healthier than most:) working on alternative ingredients to decrease the fat! My waist line has increased in the past few weeks due to this "cupcake obsession"!!!

Work in Progress

Okay, apparently I got lost in the excitement of making my own hair bows for my daughter that I didn't realize that the bows were too big! Then, as I studied the pictures I realized that I needed to work on them some more! I am okay with that...considering the pictures are the first two bows I have ever made in my entire life! I will be working on them this weekend and posting pictures as the days go by.  I am going to make: Saints, Tarheels, Steelers and some polka dots and flowers! Wish me luck! If they are good I am going to sell them for the ever so affordable $3.00 a piece! So, if you are interested leave me a comment and I will contact you via email.

55th Birthday...A day of surprises filled with LOVE

On the 30th, many people will share in the celebration of one of my wonderful bosses, Dr.E! She is turning the ever young 55! I wanted to make her return home from her wonderful "surprise dinner" just as fantastic! Her family secretly flew in from New York! SO, I had to make due with what was at their house for decorations. As you can see....we had Valentines Day themed items! But, it turned out well considering I wasn't fully prepared! Pictures will be posted as soon as I get access to my computer!

Live by design, not by accident

I am excited to discover new talents and share them with you. I have surfed the web and have started to brainstorm all the things that I would like to do! I made my first bow which will be finished soon as a hair bow for my daughter! I am also hoping to discover my photography talents! I have slowly tried to cook and develop my own recipes and go outside of the box! I look forward to sharing my experiences with you!

Cupcake Obsession

I just recently started thinking about my daughters 2nd Birthday.  It is in June and I need to be prepared! So, I have been searching for the theme that I could use.  I came across these wonderful cupcake ideas.  Ever since...I have been obsessed! I dream about trying out new ideas.  I think that taste is very important but I feel tat the presentation needs to be eye catching.  I am trying to get it all right! I made my first batch of Strawberry Banana Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting in a Ice Cream Cone! They were a hit.  I will post pictures soon! I am hoping to use this blog as a way to remember and pass on all the things that I try.  I hope that you enjoy what you see! Pictures will come soon.  I have to upload them  My inspiration was from
