Wedding Worthy Cupcakes!

I realized last night that I need to catch up on a lot of things on my post today.
I haven't shown you my sunflowers progress for the last 2 weeks,
you haven't heard about the awesome new book that I finished,
and I haven't told you about the cupcakes I recently made for a bridal shower.

First off I was so excited when I was asked to make cupcakes for this bridal shower.
This was my first time asked to make something for a price. Yay!
So, sadly I don't know if they were a hit or not.
Normally I get to enjoy, and know if they were a hit from others,
but with making them and then leaving I realized I don't know what the cupcake eaters are saying.

I made lemon cupcakes!
It's hard to see, but their are edible sparkles on top.
Perfect for a wedding celebration.

All I can do is think that they enjoyed them.
Up next is a wedding celebration.
My friend is getting married, and
surprisingly they asked me to do their wedding cake/cupcakes.
I am so excited!

Anyways onto the Sunflower Progress:

By week 6 the sunflowers are almost as tall as Cameron.
Last year when we went on vacation, we came back to the sunflowers full in bloom.
I'm kind of hoping the sunflowers will wait to bloom until we come back from vacation.
We will see!

And onto my Recently Shelved Book:
Cinder (Lunar Chronicles, #1)
by: Marissa Meyer
Teen Fantasy Fiction
Rating: 5 Stars

I love the idea of a cyborg Cinderella. Okay, it does sound a little weird, but who doesn't love a good fairytale? Retellings of fairytales have been done hundreds of times, but Cinderella ends up being flowery, and gentle, while "Cinder" by Meyer has a darker, more adult feel to it. While still capturing the hype of the dystopian fab that seems to be occurring, you will face new twist and turns in this retelling of Cinderella. Meyer was able to transport me back to my Cinderella dream days, and I was able to fall in love with the story of Cinderella all over again.

And lastly I have to release the beginning of Peter's Garden!

We realize that this time of year it's hard to plant anything, and have it grow.
But, we did a little researching, and discovered that this is the perfect time to plant pumpkins.
Hopefully they will grow, and be the perfect size by Halloween.
Remember Peter is in charge of this project!

Hopefully everyone had a good Memorial Day Weekend!
