On the other hand, some accomplishments have happened. The kitchen remodel is paid for. All the decisions on color, wood, counter top and design have been finalized. I am so excited and so ready to start emptying and tearing out cabinets. I have had both grand babies several days this month so have not been able to get too much done as far as house work.
To top all that off, on Tuesday evening before Halloween my daughter, Miss Zebra, came home and informed me that she needed a priest or monk costume for the play this weekend and 100 cupcakes for Thursday morning. So, being the great mom that I am, I spent Wednesday morning running around picking up ingredients for 100 cupcakes. You know, mixes, powder sugar and Crisco for icing, paper baking cups, two more muffin pans so I could cook more at one time, decorations to put on cupcakes. Plus, since it was the day before Halloween had to go to two different shops to find the costume. Then came home, ate lunch put Mr. M down for his nap and got started baking.
I made the orange ones, daughter made pink. Those are molded candy melt bats.
I swirled these out as well. One row has caramel and sprinkles, then the caramel bag busted.
I bought a large star tip, thinking the larger tip would let me ice the cupcake quicker. I was pleasantly surprised to find that instead of a rigged swirl it makes a swirl that looks a lot like a rose.
Along the lines of the kitchen, I bought a new gift for me.
Thanks for stopping in, come back soon. Please feel free to leave a comment, it is always nice to know that some one out there reads this.
