Preschools are getting really picky about snack time these days. I guess it's for the better, but it usually does squelch my cupcake making passion a little. But yesterday my sister and I made these cute little cupcake muffins for LZ's preschool class on Monday. They ended up being really good! Whole Wheat Flour, Bran, Molasses, Banana, Zucchini Cupcake Muffins (We really need to figure out a shorter name for these). Now because they weren't very sweet, we added a little dollup of vanilla creme frosting. I hope the teacher doesn't think they look too cute to be healthy! They were taste tested by 5 little munchkins and they gobbled them up.
I think we have a winner.
(PS, the little red candy sprinkle is an apple. The theme for the week was "school days" so what could be better than "An Apple for the Teacher?"

Just a touch of pink, and a bigger touch of champagne make these cupcakes one of the most decadent flavors yet. This is truly a big girl's cupcake.
Here, my little champagne pinkies are paired with some sweet cannoli cupcakes. Don't they look cute together?
Since I just opened the bottle of champagne, I think I'll go pour myself a glass.
The first special of the month is making it's debut and what better cupcake to start out with than The Signature Cupcake!
You can order 1 box (1 doz) of these sassy beauties for $20. They will be delivered (5 mile delivery radius) on Saturday Sept 25 or we can arrange pickup! Place your order by Wednesday September 22. To place your order, please email amy at amyv at mac dot com or leave a comment in the comment section!

Experimenting can be fun...especially if it yields great results! Today, I debuted cannoli cupcakes in my kitchen. I'm not a big fan of cannoli, but I could quickly become a fan of these!
These 20 were dropped off with a friend. 20 of them still remain in my kitchen. Wonder how long they'll last???

School has started. We have a second grader and Jr. K kid this year. Time sure does fly.
I'm not sure where the summer went but in a weeks time we somehow have found ourselves right back where we left off in June. Although, the smiles are brighter, there is anticipation and excitement as we load the car and head off to school. Our Jr. K kid didn't shed one tear or have one sad look as I left him in his class (which is a FEAT!) Our second grader loves to be dropped off at school this year, rather than having Mommy wait with her until the door opens. Our kids are growing up and there seems to be nothing that can stop it!

My friend Vertigo B told me that I should learn to use my camera to get some really great shots of my cupcakes. So, today I decided to take her advice. What do you think?
Sassy Cupcakes anyone?

Orange County just got a little sassier. The signature cupcake of The Sassy Cupcake made her debut in my kitchen today. Oh wow is all I can say. The 14 I took to school pick up were devoured by children and adults alike. I heard words like "divine" and "I'm in hog heaven" (she must have been watching The Dukes of Hazzard on CMT this past weekend)
So far, they are my favorite. So much for Lindora. I totally blew it today.
But it was totally worth it.

Today, the rocking chair was moved. Not just moved to another wall or to the other side of the room. It was removed from my boys' room.
I walk into my boys' room and I get weepy. There are no baby things left. No rocking chair, no changing table or bed rails. Instead what's left are my 2 boys, rough housing and rolling all over the floor, laughing and giggling and chasing each other everywhere. I'm left with 100 wooden trains (that thankfully still get played with) and a bag of wooden blocks and a gazillion puzzle pieces. I'm also left with 2 boys who are ROCKING OUT to Rob Biagi
That makes me smile through my weepy no baby left tears.
