Easter treats

Food port ALERT: I made from scratch cupcakes last night. Orange cake with fresh orange zest baked in and zested cream cheese frosting. I colored the frosting pastel green and then used dark green sprinkles for a grassy look. Jordan almonds make the flower on top! It was so fun to make. I really enjoy baking and bringing them to my friends to try. And they really are delicious.

I don't really have much else to say. I am still going through the whole house-hunting thing and between that and work I am just drained to the point of exhaustion. I have been eating a little better but not enough to make a big impression on my weight. UGH> I'll jump on the train eventually. Who knows!

I appreciate your comments on my last post.

@Manda: I make necklaces, bracelets, and earrings of all sorts. I specialize in stones and beads. I started it at first as a hobby for myself because I love wearing unique jewelry but then once people started asking about all my stuff I realized I could probably make extra money by selling. So that's my current venture. Hope it works out.

Well I hope everyone has a wonderful Easter weekend.

tata for now loves!


  1. You should post some pics of your jewelry sometime so we can see too!! Who knows...maybe someone will want to buy something. I'm a jewelry FREAK myself...

    Glad to hear you're still alive and still doing well. Your cupcakes look amazing and I'm wishing I could taste one. Glad we're not friends cause I'd be in trouble if you kept bringing me treats like that...

  2. Your cakes look amazing! Happy Easter!

  3. Those cupcakes look absolutely divine!


Thanks for the comment! Appreciate it!
