270 cupcakes

Yesterday five of us ladies got together and one house and made 270 cupcakes, which after frosted and a letter printed on each cupcake spelled out a 'card' to a couple moving away.

It was a lot of fun. Nine batches of cake recipes, all different types,four batches of icing and a lot of borrowed cupcake tins! It took us just less then four hours, each having assigned jobs. I was just glad I didn't have to do the printing. I had to put the cupcakes in the correct order of spelling with spaces. No spell check here!

Our little helpers for the day were very good and well behaved.

Last Wednesday my now 16 year old turned 16. Yesterday she went for her driving permit and passed. She has been driving farm machinery since she could reach the petal, and is well co-ordinated. I suspect she will be with a full license in no time.

It's been a long time since I've made cupcakes. Who is going to eat all of those cakes? :) Your little helpers sure are cutie-pies! :)

Wow, that's a lot of cupcakes. I'm glad you didnt' have to make all of them yourself. It will be helpful when you get another licensed driver in the house.

Love your lilacs. Our bushes aren't doing much of anything this year. They didn't like the cold weather.

I'm truly enjoying the design and layout of your website. It's a very easy on the eyes which makes it much more enjoyable
