The first part of my post is about cupcakes. The best vanilla cupcakes I have ever had, actually. Ever. The recipe is from Amy Sedaris (I know!) and it can be found any number of places. The one I used is from Cupcakes Take The Cake and I followed it to the letter. I doubled the recipe and got 36 cupcakes, 30 of which went to my work. They turned out perfectly and were, according to the people at my work, the most talked about treat the office has ever seen! Which I thought was nice of them to say!! Anyway, here are the cupcakes:
The second half of this post is about my birthday tomorrow. The Pressies part. Or – Why I Have The Best Husband, Mom, Brother, Sister and Niece.
The following is what I came home from work to:
Now, the big brown one – as you can see – is from my Mom. The two with the stars are from my husband and the rest are from Eric, Linda and Natalie!
I have no idea what is in any of them – not even the brown box because S took away the custom’s slip so I couldn’t even cheat and find out that way.
Also I think he made a cake for me – but it is not in the fridge so I have no idea where it could be.
So, all in all I am excited about the wonderful birthday I am going to have!
I will post more afterwards!!
Now, I am going to put on my PJs and watch some of my favorite films from snug in my bed!!!!!
