I've had this plan

I've had this plan in my head that I want to bake cupcakes for a while now. I hardly ever cook in the kitchen, because, gasp, my boyfriend- the baseball loving, hard rock liking, boyfriend of mine actually cooks. Yup, he is pretty good at it to, making his own creations all the time. But he doesn't bake. I always see the most fabulous cupcakes in Country Living, Martha Stewart, my favorite cupcake blog. So I whipped these up--and surprisingly they were fairly easy to make.

The recipe is from Martha Stewart and they are called carrot cupcakes with cream cheese frosting. I set them up on my favorite thrift store/ rummage dishes.



This whole post is turning out sort of pink, check out this other creation of mine. I saw it in Country Living several years ago and it was sort of in the background of a photo. I loved the pink thermos canister so much that I went and bought one from ebay for $14. Wouldn't you know not one month later I scored one for a $1 at a yard sale. Craziness.



Basically I took the thermos top (this one is plastic) drilled a small threaded hole and then screwed the hasp setup (purchased in the electrical section of a hardware store) into the hole. It provides charming light.
