Hello, I'm Your Hostess, Cupcake*

I frequently talk about how talented my cousin is in the cake decorating department, and today I'm finally making good on showing off her talents. These are some cupcakes she made for me this weekend. She "owed" me a birthday cake, and I was hosting the alumnae knitting group (total bust), since I am the invalide I asked her to make cupcakes for the gtg. I saw the flowers on Bakerella and forwarded them to her, but she found the butterflies in a book called Hello, Cupcake! (which I was trying to win for her at Bakerella's site. Well, at least I don't feel any pressure now in that regard.) The butterflies are chocolate and tasted awesome. The flowers are cute, but are made with candy melts. There are worse things you could eat...but look at what a gorgeous display of cake and confectionary I had!

I visited the doctor today, and it looks like I may not have to have a skin graft after all--and that's the word of the fully trained doc, not the pessimistic resident. We'll know more in ten days. They encouraged me to wear a bandaid instead of a bandage. They want me to bend my finger more. I still can't hit keys with it. I keep trying for the "i" and getting a "9;" I'm getting warmer...

*In college, I once had a party where we made people wear nametags. I ended up wearing one that said "I'm your hostess, Cupcake." The play was on Hostess and was lost on many of our midAtlantic guests who ate (shudder) Tastykakes.

Are there really people who don't know about Hostess cupcakes, Cupcake? I always eat (ate) the hard top off first, then the filling, then the cake.

Same with Three Musketeers bars. Freeze them, then eat the chocolate off the outside first, then let the frozen middle part melt in your mouth. Had one tonight as a matter of fact. mmmmm

Congratulations on the good news about your finger from the fully trained doctor.

heee hee, Hostess, Cupcake. I like it.

Gald to hear about the good news on your finger!

I have a question-- how could any gathering with those stunning confections be a bust?

Chelle said...

Cupcakes...Yum!! I'm about 29 entries behind, so I'm clueless re: your finger. Sounds painful! Hope it heals quickly. Off to see what the disaster was...

Or God forbid, Little Debbies. I used to eat the H. Cupcakes the same way--hard top, filling, cake. Remember Hohos? And best of all, Hostess Sno-balls.

Hey Anna- great news about your finger! Hopefully you'll be stitching up a storm in no time!
We got to go on field trips to the Hostess factory in elementary school. Best part was the free sample- Twinkies!
I'd eat the cupcakes bottom first and save the top for last.
All that crap tastes better frozen, plus you work off more calories trying to eat it!

....or so I like to console myself!

Oh, yeah, Snowballs! Marshmallowy in pink or white?

Why is this "stitching" blog so often about food? :) :) :)

Those cupcakes are brilliant! Sooo yummy! Maybe you could send her to my house, or just send the cupcakes, Cupcake!

P.S. - So glad to hear the good news about the finger!
