I was super sick and stuck in bed all day yesterday (some pretty bad back problems, and some other pretty bad problems...) anyhow, I stumbled upon a marathon for DC cupcakes on TLC.
The show is a little cheezy, but I love their shop. They make custom flavors and super amazing looking cupcakes.
Well as you guys know, I am aspiring to become the best cook in the world (I want my kids to say "my mom is the best cook in the world!") so I figure it will be a good idea for me to not only make food that tastes great, but also looks amazing.
I have some inspiration, Husby and I love to watch all the food shows. Some of our favorites are:
Diners, Drive Ins, and Dives
Man vs. Food
Rachel Ray (husby has a huge crush on her)
Whenever we are watching these shows, I get all inspired to start cooking. The food looks so good and so simple to make (as theyre talking, I think "oh I could do that") but when it comes down to it, I always go easy and predictable.
Well, not this time! I want to become an amazing cupcake maker, N-M-dub!
(my family says that for NO MATTER WHAT!)
I am going to go get a cake decorating kit, an amazing frosting recipe, and I'm gonna get started.
Now, my first thought is... I have to have people to bake for otherwise Husby and I are in for some serious poundage! So, my first event... THANKSGIVING!
I started looking for some cute ideas... I don't want to get too crazy on my first try. Here's what I'm thinking
Let me know if you have any good cupcake recipes, or ideas... Im gonna try ALL OF THEM!
