Cupcakes at the U of O

My brother is a professor at the U of Oregon and he lives in the new Global Scholar's Hall at the University of Oregon and is in charge of the Spanish language program.  This facility opened last year and was designed for immersion language education for students.  Check it out if you have the opportunity.

One of the features of this new residence hall is a state-of-the-art dining facility...which recently served these chrysanthemum and rose cupcakes.

P.S. I never had cupcakes when I went to college unless my mother mailed them to me.

Go Ducks!

Sunflower Cupcakes

My friend Heather gave me some sunflowers that she started from seeds and due to many unfortunate events, only one that survived to adulthood.  It has just bloomed and I am excited to have it in my yard.  The Praying Mantis was not harmed during the filming for this blog.

Martha Stewart's sunflower cupcake display would also look great in my yard....accompanied by a couple of forks!

Thank you Heather!

REACH 3 (Cupcakes and Open House)

REACH 3 (based in Concord, CA) had an open house today to welcome their new aircraft...the EC 135.  It is beautiful!  They had a BBQ and invited the local fire/EMS agencies and crews from the other REACH bases. I made some cupcakes to honor the occasion.  Fun!

My helicopter cookie cutter is too big and I need a mini one for cupcakes...does anybody have a contact to make a custom cookie cutter?

Cupcake Spatula

I found this spatula at Raley's (local supermarket) and I use it for everything...stirring coffee and tea, mixing dry ingredients for baking, getting that last pickle out of the jar.  It just makes me smile.
