Anybody ever watch Cupcake Wars? Our family thinks the show is really kinda’ fun! We don’t indulge in sugar often..but every once in a while…we can’t help ourselves!!
A few years back we had our own Cupcake Wars and it was a blast!! While Mama’s resting it seemed like the perfect time to do it again!!!
The kids were given the challenge to come up with 2 flavorful cupcakes with delectable frosting and creative decorations to be judged. Oh my! What a rowdy time they all had!!
Liberty and Emily (Liberty’s BFF who graciously flew in to help while I am recuperating and is like another one of our daughters) shopped and gathered ingredients for each of the kid’s ideas…
The judges would decide between each person’s two cupcakes which one of the two was their favorite. Now that’s a pretty ‘sweet’ way to play!! They were all so creative I mean who could ever pick just one favorite from all of them anyway??
From my chair in the family room where I perch during the days I had a beautiful view of the hustle and bustle…and our Cupcake Wars was no exception. Look at the pictures – they tell the story better than I can….
The judges oohhhed and aaahhed about how yummy each one was!! I snagged a tiny bite of each…scrumptious! Creative surprises mixed together to make some mighty yummy cupcakes!
One person (whose name will remain anonymous) was so nervous as the judges tried their unusual cupcake and literally sighed heavily when the judges said it was wonderful. It made me giggle.
And lastly, on a separate note: My numbers continue to trickle down. In fact I had my appointment at the Liver and Transplant clinic this morning. Crazy story, but my Liver specialist actually grew up in Buffalo, not far from where I grew up…how wild is that? It has been extra special treat to talk to him about many of Buffalo’s old stomping grounds!! Today he was very pleased how my numbers are continuing to trickle down. He has said my exhaustion, sleepiness and lack of strength and stamina is still all very normal. Thank you for continuing to pray! You guys are the best!! xo
