This weekend I tried out the Rose Barrette tutorial from The Purl Bee:
The majority of this weekend, though, was spent baking. Then baking some more. I made over 6 dozen cupcakes as a reminder for a church party this week. Despite some hiccups in the kitchen, they turned out really yummy. And when I say hiccup, I mean this:
I took notes from Kristin at the Blonde Designs Blog and tried the 1-2-3-4 Cake recipe from the back of the Swans Down Cake Flour box. It was really good! (I loved the flavor from the almond extract.) For the frosting, I used Wilton's Buttercream recipe, which never fails.
All in all, my weekend was tasty (though sticky), and my ponytail has never looked so good. Hope you had a great weekend, too!
