Cupcake Craze

Hi friends! I hope y'all had a wonderful holiday season. We definitely did. We thoroughly enjoyed a visit to my lovely in-laws for Thanksgiving, a visit from my cousin Derrick, followed by a lengthier one from my parents :)

I happily spent the past two days with my good friend, Audra. It was so nice to get caught up and have some girl time. How often do we, as adults, just take time to paint our nails and chat? Not often enough I'm afraid. Anyway, we spent the afternoon playing with my new favorite toy....the Babycakes Cupcake Maker!!!

Not only did my mom and dad (although I'm sure mostly my mom) get me the cupcake maker, they also gifted me a Pampered Chef cupcake display stand, cupcake storage containers, and lots of other goodies. Audra and I decided to try mini-chocolate pies called chocolate tartlettes, as well as pineapple upside-down cupcakes. Here are a few pictures from our kitchen adventure. If you are into the cupcake craze like I am, I suggest you research the Babycakes Cupcake Maker and see what you think. :)



  1. I have the mini donut maker. I really like it and it makes 7 mini ones for a snack with child. we like to make up flavors and mix n match icing. I made some homemade and hand folded , about a thousand times, croissant dough. I and going to try some in the donut maker. BTW love your blog. got sent here from pinterest for crock pot freezer dinners.

  2. Thank you so much for your comment. I'm so glad you enjoy it :) I love kitchen tools/foods that remind me of my childhood (i.e. whimsical foods, cotton candy makers) so I would really like the mini donut maker, as well!
