We had a birthday party last night for my best friend. I made these strawberry cupcakes, and they were really good. I used a recipe from this book so it was a doctored up cake mix with frosting made from scratch with fresh strawberries and confectioner's sugar. I like to bake from scratch when I do bake, but we had so much other stuff to do to get ready for the cookout that I needed something easy but nicer than a mix. They were a big hit at the party. Everyone loves cupcakes.
I made this crocheted garden gnome for her birthday present. She didn't want me to spend anything since I was throwing her a party. It's from an Amy Gaines pattern on etsy. I also made her a mix CD of happy light summer music from my collection. That's what is going on in the background on the PowerBook.
