In process cupcake stand made using this awesome tutorial from Jill at Baby Rabies

I am very crafty at all so wine and cupcakes (not even frosted yet) pulled me through.  Plus I got to play with depth of field while taking these pictures

What Blake’s face looked like after licking the frosting beaterThis chocolate butter cream is amazing .     These cupcakes are pretty awesome tooI’ve never seen sage bloom but the fresh leaves I bought at the store to use in a recipe  and ended up rooting in water has this beautiful flower.  I hope it means it healthy.


The time plant I just bought is also flowering

More cupcakes. The finished product.

It’s kind of crazy three years ago (you know when I actually had large expanses of time without a wee person hanging on me) I never would have dreamed of making monkey cupcakes.  Now look at me enjoying the crafty bakey stuff…I never dreamed I would be a stay at home mom either…let alone that I would absolutely love it.  It’s interesting where life takes you.  Okay enough of the rambling on to the pictures.

I used this cake and icing recipe and this tutorial for the monkey face

I didn’t make two dozen faces so I actually followed the recipe and topped the rest with a cookie.

The basil is coming along

The pumpkin seedlings are growing at a crazy rate

Blake is silly

Cupcake toppers I am attempting.  I have very little skill but they are supposed to look like monkeys/  At least they’re tasty (Chocolate)
