On a lighter note I bring you Sugar! These yellow cupcakes with very pink frosting are very yummy. My friend Terry needed help makeing some cupcakes for a bacholerette party and I said sure. So, I made a couple dozen of these guys. Terry gave me the recipe which is from the Magnola Bakery cookbook. I am now saving the yellow cake recipe I used for the cupcakes because it is one of the best yellow cakes I made. Oh so moist and delicious. Pink is the brides favorite color, not my choice but I think they looked cool. Also this is the first time I've gotten paid to make anything. Yeah.
This is the hard. This isn't about food or photos really and not at all happy. I guess I putting this up here are therapy for me and a tribute. A little over a week ago we had to say goodbye to a member of our family, our dog, Jake. We had four short years with him but they were good years. I miss him so much and that is one of the reasons it has taken me so long to get this up. The photo was taken the morning he died. And as usual I am crying as I write this. It is so hard hard to say goodbye. I know some people say, it's only a dog, but Jake was a member of our family and my husband and I are missing him terribly. He was my best friend. I told him at the vet's that he would be out of pain soon and that he'd soon be in tennis ball heaven. There it would rain tennis balls and he could run from one, to the next, to the next and so on. And I know that God is now smiling as he watches a beautiful dog run a catch tennis balls in the air all day. I can't describe how hard things have been for me but I do thank God for blessing us with such a wonderful friend for the time we had him.
We love you Jake.
