I'm not fancy. I'm not pretentious. I'm actually quite simple. That being said, I love #cupcakefriday!
What is Cupcake Friday, you say? Well let me just tell you!
First, you should know, I am not a professional baker. I love to bake for my family, but I am not an expert. So, not long ago my daughter and I baked cupcakes for my granddaughter's 2nd birthday. We chose four fruit flavors for one reason and one reason only. The party theme was fruity-tuity so we needed to bring the fruit flavors on big time. We were really pushing ourselves here! The line up was Key Lime, Banana Peanut Butter, Strawberry Cheesecake, and Creamsicle.
Girl, just look at these! I mean, seriously, who knew we could pull this off?! And so, #cupcakefriday was born.
Now we know that we are not professionals and that these are not up to professional standards but they are our master pieces and we are darn proud! And...inspired.
We have taken the time to 'take requests' and attempt some fun flavors for our family and friends to try. (We can't possibly eat them all ourselves!) . Last week we created Barista Bar Cupcakes that included Chai Tea Latte, Mocha Latte and, of course, #PumpkinSpiceLatte! We threw in a Maple Bacon cupcake too just because someone asked. And let me tell you...they were all AMAZING and received rave reviews!
So, why am I telling you all this? Well, let me get back to the beginning, I am simple. I have worked hard to create a life that provides time for me to enjoy simple things. I am passionate about living in our purpose and using our gifts. This means that I try new things all the time because NEW GIFTS are revealed all the time!
So, today, I want you to consider trying something new. Something a bit outside of your norm. Give yourself some room to succeed and some room to fail. Let there be trial and error. Celebrate, laugh, and learn from the experience. You just may find something new that you love to do and some gift you didn't know existed.
Today, we are tackling Ultimate Chocolate Cupcakes with Ultimate Chocolate Frosting, and Pumpkin Pie Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting. Have a fun, fabulous, find-yourself kinda Friday!
