Ok...I am new to this whole "Scentsy" trend but have you guys seen the latest warmer they have?? It's a CUPCAKE!! And OH so cute! I ordered mine last week along with the "Happy Birthday" Scent and I cannot freaking wait to get it. There is a great consultant out there that would love to help you with any questions you have as well as take your orders =]

Macaroons re-visited

We all remember my last macaroon attempt, right? Or should I say my pink cookie making... yikes. Ever since I attempted my last batch, I have been wanting to try these little buggers again. A twitter friend of mine, Michelle @kissedbysweets, suggested we try them together and hopefully get positive results. However, when she attempted hers, the humidity here in MN was ridiculously high so I had to wait to do mine. After seeing how great hers looked, I was even more nervous to try them again. Although, I did feel like I figured out what went wrong last time.

Red Velvet Cupcakes

Those of you who are fans of my blog on facebook (which I would love if you would take the second to "like"!) have already seen the breast cancer cupcake toppers that I did. Last night I finally made the cupcakes that the toppers would go on.

Just wanted to let you all know that I received a call today informing me that I got the job as a decorator at Cashwise!

I am so excited for this job and I hope it is the beginning to my decorating career!
Thanks for all of the support =]

New post to come this weekend!

Spur of the moment cake!

I know, great picture.
Aaaand I'm back! Finally after broken promises I am happy to say I have found my card reader and am back and ready to go! =] I have to admit, I have missed my blog so much, but I have missed baking even more. I was definitely in a bit of a rut which lead me to stay out of the kitchen for some crazy reason, especially when baking makes me so crazy happy! Anyways enough about me, how have you all been? So my first post back was supposed to be mini chocolate strawberry buttercream cupcakes...but I have realized that NONE of the pictures turned out.
See? Pretty awful
To be honest, the cupcakes were nothing special, so we will just pretend those never happened. The cake I am going to post about was a total spur of the moment. Our friends had invited us over this afternoon, and instead of leaving right away, I had to bake them a cake first!

Crossing my fingers!

I I know I promised a new post, but I of course have misplaced my memory card reader! So it will have to wait a bit longer.

Something that is exciting though, I have a potential cake decorating job! Cashwise called me in for an interview on Tuesday. So I will go in and decorate a cake and if I do well enough, I will get the job. I am so excited for this, and I think it will be the perfect place for me to start. Also the experience I would gain from this position would be so so great! So this weekend I am going to continue practicing piping, especially my writing.

I have a really good feeling about the job, but I am still keeping my fingers crossed. The manager kept saying how much she loves my enthusiasm about the position, so that has to be a good sign!

The shell boarders were something I had struggled with, but I think I have figured them out after much practice Thursday night!

I will keep you all updated and will post again as soon as I find my card reader =]
Have a great weekend everyone!

Where have I been?!

I am shamed to say that I have been MIA in the kitchen lately! I have started a new job and have been out of town the past 2 weekends.

Do not fret though dear followers, I shall return tomorrow with a new post. Try to contain your excitement =] I have missed my little blog and can't wait to get back to it tomorrow.
