We want to serve cupcakes at the wedding so practicing and testing ideas now is a good thing. First FLOP! I remembered reading about a recipe for Empty Tomb rolls--the ones for Easter morning that are made with a marshmallow that melts inside, leaving a hollow in the middle. I thought that idea would work to make a hollow space for yummy filling to be piped in. WRONG!!
Sticky mess all over, not really bad to eat, but NOT what I had in mind. Williams-Sonoma to the rescue...a cup cake corer! Now for another test later this week.
Thrift shop success was finding this sweet tea pot for $2. Half off day at GW!! I think it is just so cute and perfect for spring.
And a Happy Heart came in the mail last Friday for me. I was one of the first five people to comment at Evelyn and Rose on Pay it Forward. Susan made this heart for me with Wally's and my initials after she read about us. It is a perfect gift as I collect hearts and counted over 45 in the kitchen this morning and will be finding a perfect spot for this one as well! Now I need to mail out mine as soon as they are finished. Warning: Sarah don't read under the picture!
Because Susan is so sweet, she also sent one for Sarah and Alex, but I won't post a picture yet because they haven't seen it yet. Last weekend was a hectic one for Sarah as she moved out of her apartment and moved things into storage. Ali's house isn't ready yet, but someone needed to move in the apartment, so Sarah and her room mate moved out a bit earlier than planned. For now she is staying with friends in Denver, but may be driving from here twice a day during part of April.
