SAGE & Rambling

I was graciously asked to do a few cupcakes for a friend of mine who heads up an awesome girls' ministry called SAGE. I thought they turned out pretty cute! They were designed and made specifically for SAGE, so if you ever want some you will have to ask for the SAGE design. I handmade all the butterflies and the S's, but I was surprised by how well they turned out! I have no formal training on how to do anything, unless you count spending tons of hours bugging my mom in the kitchen asking to help and reading cookbooks. I can still remember the first time I really baked something. My oldest sister was away at college for her freshman year and I decided I would bake her some cookies. I made sugar cookies and cut them out. I overbaked them; of course and then made some homemade icing. Her school colors were purple and gold so in went lots of food coloring. I wish I had a picture of those cookies, I'm sure they were awful! But, my sister told me they were good anyway. I did put a lot of love into them, so maybe they were ok. Today while you have nothing to do, eat a cupcake and go check out SAGE.

Hey!! Thanks for my blog visit!! I was just talking to Becca about you- she was telling me how excited she is to have you come and do a cupcake demo at the Chocolate Fest!! So cool!! I love these- but I am really digging the Valentine one you made with the chocolate icing and red sprinkle. Yum. That icing looks so thick and gooey.

Let me share the truth about the SAGE cupcakes. I loved them so much that when one (only one) was left at the end of the weekend I immediately claimed it. On the way to my car I accidentally dropped the sacred cupcake on the ground (not just the ground, parking lot pavement). I immediately scooped it up and to my surprise it was still fully intact!! Woohoo! I took it home and shared its goodness with my husband and son. The cupcake lives on!
