The Fame... It's Going to My Head...

Um, so I know I'm no celebrity, but there's something about being asked for advice that makes me feel super important.  

Like I'm some sort of ZENITH of knowledge.

A wealth of information.

A source of all there is to know.

The end-all be-all of ---
OK, do you get the point yet?   
Can I let my big head deflate now?

Last week, Amber of Amber's Life sent me an email asking me if I had a good recipe for red velvet cupcakes.

Do I have a good recipe for red velvet cupcakes?


Does Gertie Rock?  Does doing taxes stink?  Are Reality TV shows overrated?
 [answers: yes, yes, and double yes]

You get my point.

 So yes, I had a recipe to share with her as well as my own recipe for cream cheese frosting.

Here's what she came up with:
Look at these little beauties!  
Look how RICH and RED they are!!

Ohhhhh... that's what a red velvet should look like...

Here they are iced:
Mmmm... word on the streets is that these suckers didn't last long...

Check out the sweet little sprinkles she found to put on top:

Thanks for petting my ego making my day, Amber!! 

(And hey, if any of you get a chance, go check out her blog Designs by Amber, too.  She's so talented!)


  1. I'll be making more of your cupcake recipies! Yours are the best and and you have fun ones!

  2. They just look so pretty, I wouldn't want to eat them... for the first few seconds at least.

  3. Those look incredible. The cream cheese frosting has always been my favorite part:)
    Came over from SITS.

  4. Those cupcakes look delicious. Visiting from SITS!

  5. OOOH an red velvet with cream cheese is my favorite flavor of all flavors. AND yoplait has come out with a redvelevet cream cheese yogurt that is SOT on with teh taste...

  6. These looks great! Thanks for stopping by.

  7. You have an award over at my blog :)

  8. I am so happy that your new job is going so well!! OF COURSE IT IS :)

    You should really start using twitter to bring more blog traffic to your recipes etc, for when you really do get that bakery of yours up and running.

    Twitter will really get the word out. There will be so much more fame. How will you handle it all? You'll need a manager. I'll have to move the entire tribe to California...
    You'll have to travel in mustache disguise at all times!!

  9. Those cupcakes are super cute and they look delicious too! I wish I could have one right now... with a cup of coffee of course!

    I am happy to read you are loving your job! There is nothing like enjoying what you do... I am sorry I haven't been able to comment as much lately but my little girl keeps me busy :)

    I am always around though! :)
