We all know that I love cupcakes…baking them and eating them. And if you’ve been around for a while you might also know that I like to decorate cookies too. I’m hardly a pro, but I enjoy it. And I can honestly say that when it comes to sugar cookies, I like decorating them more than eating them. Whew!
I’m attending three parties over the next several days, and the first is tomorrow so I baked cupcakes and cookies.
I also did some test baking for my niece’s third birthday in Colorado next week so please excuse the random placement of giraffes among the Easter cookies. I wish I would have taken better pictures!
And I did a test run for the zoo party cupcakes recently, and this is what they look like. Keep in mind, I don’t know what the heck I’m doing. I just think it’s fun to try.
My niece’s party will be at a mountain zoo next week, and if anyone has decorating ideas I’d love to hear them. My entire family loves the zoo, and it will be nice to make some new memories with them.
I got through the day without eating much of the junk I made, and I’m pleased. And now I’m beat and need to rest before relatives arrive. My Friday plans include spending time with the family, hitting the gym and reading.
And speaking of the gym, I hope that the well-meaning guy who now offers unsolicited and unwanted advice works out before or after me tomorrow. Earlier this week he told me that I should be drinking 230 oz of water a day after first telling me that I should multiply my body weight times eight and drink that much per day. Um…that would be over 15 gallons per day. My response “Not going to happen, bro. I drink a gallon a day, and most days that’s enough. Thanks. “
Have you ever run into that guy at the gym? You know…the one who keeps talking and talking and talking while you’re just trying to do your workout? If so, how do you handle it?
And do you have plans for the holiday weekend? What will you do to celebrate?
