How I’m Spending the Day

I am working on a batch of cupcakes and a series of books (Stieg Larsson’s Girl with the Dragon Tattoo books) and I just looked at the table and thought This is what Saturdays are for.

I make my own cake frosting using a block of cream cheese, an 8-oz jar of marshmallow fluff, about a quarter cup of heavy whipping cream and powdered sugar to taste (usually about a half cup). Yum. Red sugar, strawberry, and yum. With coffee. And a good book. It’s a little rainy outside, but I think I will try to talk my husband into going to the lake to watch the swans again today.

I made this.

    that cupcake looks/sounds good enough to make me want to take a bite out of my computer screen! YUM! I’m going to have to try this icing…sounds like something I’d just want to eat by the spoonful!

      Yes! You have to try it- it’s so easy and addictive and scrumptious. 😀

  2. Rachel Said:

    That really looks yummo, oh and how good that would be with some coffee, Can I come over, friend?…

    • kirinjirafa Said:

      please do 🙂 I made half the batch to practice decorating with fondant, so maybe you can try one of them if you want- the strawberries are about gone…
