The Cuteness Factor

Can you believe that these are all........






CUPCAKES???? While browsing through Borders yesterday--and with a 30% coupon burning a hole in my pocket--I came across this delightful book. Are these not just the cutest things ever? And you can eat them!!! The back cover of the book promises that no baking skills or fancy equipment are required. Hmmmm...even I should be able to make at least a few of them. I can just see platters full of snowmen or penguins for the neighborhood Christmas deliveries. Or how about aliens and owls for Halloween time? And the horses are just too darn adorable. Sure looks like fun in the kitchen to me.
And speaking of cuteness, isn't this wallhanging just precious? I found it in the Better Homes and Gardens 2008 Holiday Crafts magazine.
Looks like it wouldn't take too terribly long to finish... Yepper, I am starting to think CHRISTMAS ! LOL Although, my favorite season Fall is just around the corner and it may be time to haul out those pumpkin and acorn things... Also, it may be time to stay out of Borders.

Oh man, those are really cute cupcakes! I think my favorites are the aliens, tho' the horses are a close 2nd. You know, I took up quilting 'cuz it lasts longer than baking! *smile*

Yes! Those are the cutest cupcakes! I will have to find that book. I've been fascinated with cupcakes since I visited a place in Tacoma, WA. called "Hello Cupcake" All they serve are cupcakes, tea, coffee and milk. They were packed all the time as they are near the college campus and downtown Tacoma convention center. Love cupcakes! $1.99 a cupcake. Every flavor imaginable. None as cute as the ones pictured on your blog though!

Very cute cupcakes! It would've been neat to decorate like that when my kids were small. ;-)

I love the wall hanging! Yes, I'll be looking for that magazine too. ;-) LOL
