Vacation and Cupcakes

Hello there!
Today I am leaving to go on vacation with my family. We are going camping! I love camping. Something about being in the great outdoors and just looking at all the wonderful things that God has made is just amazing. I will be gone for about a week and then I will be home for maybe a day and a half and then leaving again to go visit my grandparents for a week. So I probably won't have a post with in the next two weeks. But when I get back I will have to make something cause I will have been going through baking withdrawals! Lol. But there are several birthdays coming up (including my own ^_^) once I get back. So I will be making some cakes or cupcakes or something! I am excited! I already have some ideas that I hope will work out!!!

I thought I would still leave you (the few...possibly none...readers here...) with something that I have made. Last Sunday, I had a family reunion to go to. So I made cupcakes! I absolutely LOVE cupcakes! I don't know what it is but they are just so cute and fun for me to ATTEMPT to decorate! When I was looking for a job I actually applied at a cupcake place (unfortunately I didn't get that job...oh well).
I started out just making regular sized cupcakes. But then I ran out of the liners....I might would have just sprayed the pan really good and not use liners but I thought since I was taking these somewhere that I would rather use the backing cup liners. So I searched in the cabinet to make sure I didn't miss any...I hadn't...but I did find TONS of the miniature ones. So I used those. They were actually better to use cause there were several desserts there and some people might just want a bite or two of a cupcake and not the whole cupcake. So it was perfect size.

I still haven't mastered the art of decorating cupcakes...but I think these turned out pretty cute :)
Here they are:

It is a purple looks a  lot prettier in person.  Here it looks almost like a weird greyish purply color.  They still seemed kinda plain to me.  And then I remembered that a cupcake is never complete without SPRINKLES!!! So this is what I decided to do. 

I thought they turned out pretty well if I do say so myself. 

Well I better go finish packing and getting ready.  I will be back in a week or two!  Bye!
