Lisa called me to order a cake for her daughter's baby shower. She was creative and fun and when we met together to discuss the cake over coffee with her husband Phil we collaborated on an idea that would make the cake unique and special for her daughter.

We didn't just talk about cake, we ended up chatting about raising kids and the excitement of a new baby on the way. There was some confusion at first because I thought Sarah (the mommy to be) was her sister, not her daughter! Lisa was so pretty and looked so young that it took some explaining for me to get that she was going to be a grandma! It was a pleasure to meet Lisa and her family.

I have to say again that I think I have the best customers! They are the most delightful people and it is a pleasure to be part of the happy events in their lives in this way.

Now, I'm in the mood to bake something... but what?

I love my customers. They are such cool people!

I just met Laurie and her sister and even though it was only for a minute I totally thought "OK. They would be cool to hang out with."
I absolutely LOVED making their cupcakes too!

It was for a baby shower, and I designed them based on the invitations and colors of the shower.

I am ready for the cold harsh reality of winter to move on.
I love Christmas, but I am glad to have my routine back and the quiet of a simple evening at home.
I don't miss the holiday traffic or the packed aisles in the stores.
I don't miss the pine needles on the floor.

It may be weeks after Christmas but I am STILL craving Frosted's new Egg Nog Spice Cupcakes!

mmm, mmm, good!
Now where can I find some egg nog this time of year?

It would be a bummer to have to wait another 10 months for it...

I was craving pumpkin scones.

There is nothing like the warm crumbly texture of a scone to go with your coffee. :)

A yummy distraction from the cold outside!
