Cupcake Camp
Cupcake Camp Miami was last night. It has come and gone. I am so happy it's over with too. There was so much planning, organizing, emailing, driving, and talking involved. I can't wait to do it again but I definitely need a break. Cati needs her mommy back. I need my sanity back. I also need my laid-back-play-with-Cati-all-day days back. I missed my baby and she probably didn't like the fact that she spent more time in her car seat than in my arms. I missed my kitchen. I think I actually heard my oven cough today in an effort to get my attention. I'm feeling inspired from last night and want to make some cupcakes. What flavor? Don't know. Any suggestions?
I didn't take a single picture with my camera so I'm at the mercy of others to share their pictures with me. I was too busy getting everything together. Can you believe all I ate were TWO cupcakes when there were over 1000 cupcakes at the event? I suck, big time.

Never good being number 1, but I'll play anyway! I love chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Basic and simple, but oh so satisfying

Yey for cupcakes! I've always been a fan of traditional vanilla, but at last night's event I would have to say my favorites were Klassy Kakes' Key Lime and Pumpkin Dulce de Leche and Jessy Bakes Cakes' Red Velvet
