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!

Rolling Out the Cookie Line! and Earth Mama Wreath

The cookies are here! There is enough butter in the world which makes it a better place.
We sent some Braille Cookies to the National Braille Press in Boston for a big show they were doing, and some Dalmations and Blonde Cocker Spaniels to Chicago for a special birthday. All arrived essentially in one piece and still full of love!
To celebrate the availability of Buster Cookies around the country- we are having a contest for a Buster Cupcake and Cookie jingle or slogan!
Grand Prize - A Buster Circus with Buster in an outfit- Me on Sax and Guitar- and a dozen cookies or cupcakes!
Second Prize- A Buster Cupcake Circus Tote-Bag, a t-shirt, and a dozen cookies or cupcakes!
Third Prize- A dozen cookies sent US Mail to your door!
The Winner will be announced on November 15th. Get your ideas to me on Facebook, here on the blog, or at my email. "Nothing says 'Somebody really really loves you' like Buster Cupcakes" [or your slogan or jingle here]. Order your holiday cookies today!
We made the Autumn Leaves Wreath this week for an Earth Mama baby shower. Even a Certified Environmental Horticulturalist had some difficulty finding suitable leaves in San Francisco. Not so many small maple leaves around. And, of course, stepping over the ravers break dancing in the street when you're stealthily sneeking through the neighbor's yard in the dark of night stealing leaves. We tried Ivy leaves but they were a bit too curly. We turned to the leaf press, so that might work at some point. Did coating the leaves with butter help? When does coating things with butter not help? I switched to using the modeling chocolate in the piping bags instead of bowls, because getting any chocolate on the back side of the leaf broke the whole thing. Not surprisingly easy. 38 down, 11 to go!
