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!

Oh, it's fun to use big words!!! Almost as much fun as sculpting Tootsie Rolls and Twinkies! Winkie Face! Decorating ideas number 45 and 46 were the Thanksgiving Turkeys and the Partridge in the Pear Tree. Three more to go! I have to tell you that there is no such thing as caramel jimmies. Dusty Daly City Professional Cake Store Proprietress told me this a few months ago, and lengthy internet searches have proven it true. It takes a special kind of weirdo to roll out tiny pieces of actual caramels and then mince them and then put them on the turkey with tweezers, but I did that! Then we decided that rainbow jimmies are just that much more festive. Louie likes birds. I'm not so much of a fan, so eating birds of whatever various flavors is my preferred avian interaction. We had a lovely holiday and hope everyone else did, too. Looking forward to some serious cupcaking cheer and then taking our creative endeavors to ever more artful heights- on Dasher, on Dancer!

Artists n Alligators

Love 'em, don't eat them! Or it's okay to eat them if they're made out of cupcakes! It's almost as if I planned making the alligator frosting from mixing all the Van Gogh frosting together... what does it mean?


Treats and Costumes make us happy...
but the werewolves WERE scary! The Giants winning the World Series was kind of fun, too! Good thing it was distraction day at Civilized Canine Class, good job Buster! All super fun cupcakes to make, just a slight issue with getting the Oreos to open cleanly. I had to have a special Oreo engineer come in. And I just used dark chocolate frosting instead of breaking out the black food coloring. Good thing the pumpkins and the Giants' colors are the same! We like to yell, "San Franciscoooooooooo!"
