Hackers and cupcakes...

A few minor but annoying events popped up late last week.  Blogger ate all of my blog photos.  Shortly after, gremlins hacked my website's host server making it inaccessible for a while >:^(  No viruses involved, just irritating glitches and people!  I believe in karma...hackers beware >:^)

Fortunately, a special project earlier in the week made it easier to tolerate the above-mentioned nonsense.  A good friend, whose daughter goes to university thousands of miles away (like mine!), wanted to send a food miniature with the usual care package and rang me up.  The request was for strawberry cupcakes, the last thing daughter baked before departing for school.  For a lot of miniaturists, the first thought would probably be, "walk in the park" or "piece of cake".  Not me.  I've never done cupcakes before.  I wasn't terrified of attempting them, just never had the urge to try.  In the end, I really had a great time "baking" the strawberry cupcakes.

Of course, I couldn't stop there, lol, and made these Black Forest cupcakes for the shop.  The icing was piped into heart shapes :)




Looking forward to a great week and hope you all enjoy the same :)
