Purple Cupcakes:)!

Hi everyone, today my cousin and I made some cupcakes from scratch! Im not sure what we did wrong, but every time I do make them from scratch, they turn out dense and they taste like sweet cornbread. Do any of you have any good recipes? I guess I'll just have to keep on trying till I find the perfect one. But of course, the frosting made up for the not-so-great cupcake part. Well, they didn't taste bad, they just weren't light and fluffy :)

At least I have the whole summer to come up with a perfect cupcake recipe!! :)

See ya later everyone! :)

Cricut Cake!!! :D

Hi everyone :) For my birthday last week I got the Cricut Cake Mini !!! My cousin and I made these adorable cupcakes :) The butterfly was cut from homemade gum paste and was from Create a Critter. I love how they turned out! It was alot of work though and at times frustrating but in the end they were nice. :)

The butterfly was supposed to stand straight up on the cupcake, but for some reason they weren't hardening, so we had to lay them down.

I'll have more cupcakes for you tomorrow, thanks for stopping by! :)

Calligraphy Project!

Hi everyone, for my final in calligraphy I had to create a piece to go to the state fair. I've been working on this for months, and I just love this style of writing. Here's my final piece :) (I really want to win a ribbon!!) :)
I've spent so much time practicing this, I really wanted it to be perfect! :)

Hope you all have a nice summer! :)
