Cupcakes make me smile.......Even when its 100 degrees outside!

I made this happy little cupcake scene yesterday while trying to stay cool. We had a very hot weekend here. Makes woring with clay a little more difficult but I did make this. I watched life time movies and ate ice cream. The perfect day really. "No honey..... its too hot for house work".
Its cooler today so no excuses for me. Plenty to do! Mini hugs!

Dropping hints for Mothers Day......

I was in our local french bakery Friday with my daughter and they had a flyer on the counter for the princess cake for Mothers Day! I haven't had this in soooooo long. They even sell it sliced but there wasn't any .It was the end of the day. Well I scooped up a couple of the little flyers and have put them around the house ........then yesterday I decided to make some in miniature. Surely they will notice them. Hint hint hint .... I guess time will tell.
I thought I would share my miniature versions here. The princess cake is white chiffon cake filled with raspberry and Bavarian custard whipped cream and draped with traditional marzipan.
How does that sound? Like the perfect Mothers day dessert to me! I know ...What about chocolate?..... well thats everyday for me! Mini hugs!
