A Pretty Chocolate Cupcake

I have a decorating tool that is so fun to use. It makes regular cupcakes and cookies look like I bought them at the store bakery.

Over the summer I got hooked on watching a TLC show called "Cake Boss" I am truly amazed at what these artists can create. Maybe you'll be hooked too. http://http//tlc.discovery.com/search/results.html?focus=video&query=cake+boss&search.x=24&search.y=5

I really thought that the cake we chose the make for Lydia's birthday, the cupcake kingdom, would turn out looking like like the Cake Boss made it. Even just watching the show I learned some skills and inside scoop to the cake decorating world. I have to admit i was quite proud of myself-tackling such a large cake project with very little experience in cake decorating.

That cake looks awesome! It puts my kids birthday cakes to shame. I love Lydia's expressions when eating the hamburger. So cute. Tell Riley awesome flips into the pool. :)

Hi there I googled images of "school bus safety" and found your school bus picture here on this blog. May I use it in a newsletter for the "Utah Network of Employers For Traffic Safety"? We'll send you a copy of the Newsletter if you approve. Let me know how you feel - jclark@utahsafetycouncil.org
