Anyway, the reason for the lack of viewing pleasure is because I simply had too much important stuff to do today. You see, today is my Momma's birthday! So I decided she should celebrate with all of her employees and coworkers. I have been either shopping or baking since I dropped the kids off at school around 8 this morning.
My baking situation has been total win today. I made Strawberry Lemonade, Vanilla Bean, Cherry Vanilla, and a special Chocolate Cupcake. All turned out perfectly (or at least so far... my frosting for the Choc is still cooling) and got them all baked, frosted, and boxed with no issue.
However, my shopping situation has been total fail. I went to Krogers first thing and thought I got enough stuff to handle all the cupcakes. But, once I got back home and got started, realized that I would be out of eggs within one batch and that I was out of piping bags.
Still, I thought it wasn't a biggie. There's a nasty little convenience store on the corner and I figured eggs from there would be fine. And there's a little party store about 5-10 min from here for the piping bags. So I hit the little store. They had eggs, but they went out of date Nov 4. So I tried two more small stores, neither of which had eggs. And then I just gave up and went to a real grocery store. They had eggs all right, but no piping bags. So I still had to stop at the party store for them. What I thought would take about 15 min took an hour.
But none of that matters now. All that matters is that I can get these beauties to my Mom so she can celebrate! Plus Not-So-Ex is pretty psyched cause he gets to take the leftovers to work with him. So everyone wins!
