I (heart) Bakerella

Hello my friends.. I hope you are all doing well.  I just wanted to share with you these cupcakes I made for my son in law for his birthday.  I can always rely on finding something fun and unique on Bakerella's site and as soon as I saw these cute cupcakes I just knew that I wanted to make them.. 
They turned out sooo cute, I just love them.  Not quite as styling as Bakerella's but on the fly I thought they turned out pretty good.  I couldn't find the red gumballs she called for for the "cherry" so I used strawberry whoppers.. and since the cupcake is strawberry I thought it was kinda fitting.  These are so good.. strawberry, chocolate ganache.. buttercream icing and a whopper on top?!!  Heaven.  This is my new go-to birthday cake.. who's birthday is next?  lol  Just wanted to share.

On the crafty front I haven't done much lately, I've been going through all my stuff and getting rid of the junk so I can have some crafting room.  I've just been in a funk and couldn't seem to start/finish much of anything.  My sewing area is so crammed that I can't find anything and I know I have it and so I just give up looking and put everything away or shove it in a corner.  Hopefully when I clear my sewing/crafting area my brain will clear too and I can get back to it. 

I hope you all have a wonderful holiday weekend and get plenty of sunshine!!
