Busy Summer

I know I promised at the beginning of the year that I was going to post more.  What I didn't realize was how busy and how tired I was going to be this summer.  We have been working on the house, hosting cul de sac BBQs, planning a HOA community picnic, meeting new neighbors, watching our babies grow, and so on and so on.

I have also found a fan of my baking in one of my husband's coworkers.  So I have been busy baking for him and his family recently.  One of the new things I tried was a Nutella buttercream frosting on top of a chocolate cupcake.

I got the inspiration from the Cannella Vita website.  As you can see, my cupcakes look a little different, but goodness they were delicious.  I used a chocolate cupcake recipe that I have been using for a while and then followed Erica's instructions on making the buttercream.  I just swirled mine instead of piping two different frostings.

I also had the chance to make my son a birthday cake this past week.  My little man turned three this past weekend and is blowing me away with what he knows.  His favorite television show right now is Paw Patrol.  And his favorite dog on the show is Rubble.  He helped pick out the colors and everything!

I make baked goods so often that our son informed his doctor at today's visit that our last name is "Cake".  Hey, it could be worse.
