What could be better....

March 2, 2008

...than watching one of my favorite movies....

and making cupcakes at the same time....

Add to that some scrappy time, and the only thing that could have made the day any better is if my hubby could have been at home too. But alas, he has to work on Sundays, and he had a closing shift. So, I did a bunch of fun girly stuff that he wouldn't have had fun doing anyways. Now I have 24 cupcakes....well, 22 since I ate two of them...that I need to find a home for. The hubby doesn't care for cherry chip cake and frosting- and I will gain about a zillion pounds if I try and eat them all. So, I think I will take them to work tomorrow as a belated Valentine treat for everyone. I had that awful cold/flu thing over Valentine's day...so I wasn't about to get my germs all over some baked goods and get everyone else sick at my work. Come to think of it, I don't think I even went in on V-Day because of it.

I will confess that the cupcakes are from a box, and the frosting is from a tub. I got a Kitchenaid Mixer for my birthday, but have yet to bake a good cake from scratch. I can make a mean homemade bread...and some pretty fabulous cookies, but the cake thing...not working out to well for me.

SO...if you have any tried and true homemade cake recipes...I would LOVE to have them! I WANT to make a good cake from scratch- it just hasn't happened yet. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciated!

I will share my scrappy stuff later this week. I need to get better photographs of it all first....I missed the perfect daylight by just mere minutes!

Hope your Sunday was blessed,

    One Cup Butter
    Two Cups Sugar
    Three Cups Self Rising Flour
    Four Eggs

    And then a cup of milk and a tsp of vanilla! The she made a coconut filler and a beautiful icing...
