To The Winner Goes the Cupcakes

My cupcake decorating experience up to now involved slathering icing on them and dousing with a few sprinkles as a kid.  Therefore, I was elated that my cupcake won in the “Scariest Cupcake” category at my work’s recent Cupcake Wars.

I endured some gentle ribbing from co-workers for bringing a big bag of stuff from home for the decorating.  What do you mean I’m competitive?  Competitive how?  Like I want to pulverize the competition?*

(I mean…*coff coff*…I simply want to be the best at what I do.)

I love food and the chance to use my hands, get messy and create something.  Creating this was SO much FUN!  I even grabbed some “blood” I had made for a cosplay last year and drizzled it over the graveyard for that extra touch of horror.

The winner in the “Most Creative” category:

We Come in Peace

I love how this person cut their cupcakes and stacked them to create the alien. 

At home later that night, I created a cupcake decorating station for hubby with some of the left overs from work.  As a consultant, he doesn’t get a chance to participate in fun activities at work, which he lamented when I messaged him that I had won.  We’ve had some really rocky times in our relationship lately.  I thought it would be nice to surprise him with something fun.  He was surprised and touched and had a blast decorating his cupcakes.  Wow, a relationship building moment over cupcakes.  Sweet.  Or sweets!

Decorated any cupcakes recently?  Were they “scary”?  Or Cake Wrecks scary? (Man, I love that site!)  Feel free to share!

Pesky Problem? Solved!

There’s a problem popping up all over America.

A problem – that while minor in the light of day – can have severe consequences in the dark.

Pesky problem? 

S-o-l-v-e-d.  I just love it when a plan comes together.
