It has been quite awhile! Since my last post I've been busy baking and raising money, as of right now I'm at 24% of my goal. There are a few more donations I mailed in that I'm waiting to hit my Susan G. Komen 3-Day account, they should put me over 25% hopefully. Here are some pictures of what I've been up to recently.

Vanilla cupcakes with green and yellow frosting for BCS National Championship Game on January 10, 2011. We are huge Oregon Duck fans around here, sadly they lost but it was a great season.
100 cupcakes for a friends 30th birthday. Red velvet, Vanilla with Buttercream, Peanut Butter, Cookies and Cream Cheesecake, and Brownie with mint filling
ButterBeer cupcakes inspired by Harry Potter! I found this recipe on AmyBites and I knew it would be perfect for my coworkers birthday. She loves Harry Potter and got me reading all the books and hooked on the movies. Pretty excited for the final movie to come out in July.
St. Patrick's Green Velvet cupcakes! I picked up a mini cupcake pan from Crate and Barrel and these were the perfect cupcakes to try out first! I found this recipe on PickyPalate. I'm usually not a big St. Patrick participant, I'm not Irish at all, but thought these were so cute. Who can resist a mini green cupcake with yellow buttercream? They were so good and addicting. I ended up taking 2 plates to my friends at Najdek Produce, they disappeared very quickly!
My roommates birthday is next week and we've got some surprises planned for him. I'm hunting around for a delicious cake to make for his birthday dinner Monday night.
In other big news for today it's Brian's one year anniversary of opening his State Farm Agency! I am so proud of him and everything he has accomplished. I can't wait for the great things he'll be doing in the future.
