We Spread A Lil' Cupcake Love Today

In yesterday's post I mentioned that at times I push myself despite the pain I'm in. Today was one of those days. I wanted to make cupcakes. Not just any cupcakes. I wanted to go the extra mile and make really great, decadent cupcakes. I was determined. Nothing was going to stop me. And, it didn't.

As quoted from my personal Facebook page...

When the world gets a little too loud and people stomp on your good deeds, the remedy, for me, is to simply "mute" everything, bake, and spread some sweet love to the beautiful people in my life who have become family. That's exactly what I did today.

ALL homemade. The first, double chocolate cupcakes with a chocolate mousse filling, peanut butter frosting, peanut butter cups and a chocolate drizzle. The second, a dense lemon cheesecake cupcake with a lemon infused buttercream frosting, vanilla chip drizzle, lemon sugar and sprinkles.

I had fun making these. There was a minor obstacle, though. It was in the 90's. Hazy. Hot. Humid. The air conditioners weren't installed yet. Lisa did that after she got home from work.

As in 10 minutes after she got home from work. I can tolerate the heat. Lisa hates it. It was hot in the house when she got home. This is the view from our home office.

I managed to work around the stifling heat. Where there's a will, there's a way.

I even made a few vanilla cupcakes with peanut butter frosting for the kids. I topped those cupcakes with our homemade biscuits.

I forgot to take a photo of those.

Once the cupcakes were finished, I made a few plates. Time to spread a lil' sweet cupcake love. Lisa delivered.

After dinner, we delivered to a friend's house who lives a few towns over.

We sat outside and played with her pups.

Our friend and I polished off a big bottle of wine.

Lots of laughs.

We got home shortly after 8 and had family snuggle time on the sofa after the kids enjoyed their cupcakes.

I needed today.

Everyone loved their cupcakes.

I think they needed it too.
