Vote for my Cupcakes!!

I have entered my peach, cinnamon, and mascarpone cupcakes into a contest!  I would love to win all of their lovely prizes so if you would take a minute to head to this site and vote for my cupcake “Let Them Eat Cake I would very much appreciate it.

These cupcakes are cinnamon cupcakes with fresh, cinnamon dusted peach slices placed gently in the batter before baking.  They are topped off with a silky mascarpone buttercream icing.

I hope you’ll vote for me!!

Vote for Let Them Eat Cake!

UPDATE:  Well, I didn’t win the contest but I did alright for my first online baking competition. 🙂  I came in 28th out of 58 entries so I’m happy. 🙂  Thanks to those who voted!

Wilton Roses & Fresh Squeezed Lemons

I just finished the first Wilton cake decorating course at the local Michael’s craft store.  I must say that I enjoyed it and learned quite a bit.  I know my husband and coworkers were more than happy to enjoy the fruits of my labour.  I made 3 cakes over the last 3 weeks including a simple vanilla cake with fresh strawberries for the first week and a rich chocolate cinnamon cake for the second week.  My final course was last night and I decided fresh squeezed lemons for my cake and creamy yellow roses were the way to go…

Yum.

Head over to Let Us Eat Cake if you’d like to see the mini cupcakes I made this week!

Yummy!
