Buster Cupcakes
Buster and I are making all the cupcakes out of "Hello, Cupcake" by Karen Tack and Alan Richardson, like Julie Powell did with Julia Child's "Mastering the Art of French Cooking". We are open to gimmicks of any flavor!

Hey, nice cupcakes!

So we counted up again how many recipes are in Hello, Cupcake! and it isn't 50, but 49. AND we recounted how many recipes we've completed- it's now 28 so we only have 21 left to go! And we're sad about that because it means that we won't have to hunt for any more weird candy on the internet or search out dusty old cake decorating shops in Daly City because we already found them all! We also finished reading Julie&Julia and we are sad that we perhaps are not neurotic enough to be a memoirist even though we are pretty dang neurotic. Oh well.
Of course one of the horses had to be pink as that is an immutable law of cupcakes. Extra circus peanuts and extra cookie wafers make it so.
We did the Horses for which we sent away for the white circus peanuts many moons ago and have been saving the dried onions since Thanksgiving. A little more room in the cupcake cabinet! I did have a crazy dream about the speckle-y jelly beans which might make me neurotic enough for something...

Three Cheers for the Red, White and Blue!

And plenty of Baseball as the Giants loose to the Rockies in 15 innings... I made lots and lots of cupcakes and had the gang come out to help me eat them all- the Flag recipe calls for 96 cupcakes. I made them out of organic fruit juice sweetened carrot cake with organic blueberries and strawberries since we had to eat so many...
Buster and Mr. Filmschool like carrot cake and we all looked super cute in our matching t-shirts and cupcake hats. Better to eat lots of cupcakes than weird stuff off the ground. Everyone had a great time and no cupcakes had to spend the night in the emergency room. 26 recipes down, 24 to go!

Take the Garden Gnomes Bowling, Take them Bowling

Bowling pins seemed a little drab- so we livened them up by turning them into Garden Gnomes- complete with leftover spice drop ale tankards! Always a party at the garden! It was Mr. Filmschool's birthday along with several co-workers so our little cupcake factory has been working over-time.

We have a friend who has some chickens- so we made her some special cupcakes- a friend in a big show so he got some comedy/tragedy masks- and we can all do with a little help from mother nature now and then.
25 recipes down- we're half-way there, it must be time for a big party!
