Who needs fame? Who needs wealth? Not me! Give me a spontaneous cupcake baking/decorating party any day, and I'll be a happy chick. My kids' "fake cousins" were all here yesterday with my bff for this impromptu party and it was a delicious way to hang out :). Photo Series by Zach:

|check out those faces :)|
|I think they were having fun... notice pete is stuffing his face with chocolate in every single picture... that's one way to keep him occupied.|
|I whip my hair. I whip my hair.|
|I believe the party was a success.|
Speaking of health, I'm working on my vanilla cupcake recipe (yes, complete with healthy sticks of BUTTER for the icing and batter, and REAL SUGAR :). I do use a multigrain flour though! Adds fiber??!). I feel like they're coming out too dry though. I like cakes to be dense (more like a pound cake) and not fluffy, but super MOIST (sorry Alli. My friend Alli hates that word. We'll call it "M-word"). I love the flavor and texture of these but need MORE M-WORD. Any tips? Favorite vanilla cake/cupcake recipe you want to share? I know you read my blog! I have a counter-thingy! Plus, I want to meet you. Leave me a comment with your fav recipe or link to one that you love. THAAAAAANKS!
Happy weekend all!
(oh. and yes. So stoked about the weekend- we're surprising the kids with something fun... will blog about it next week. Zach and I have never pulled off a big surprise so this should be interesting!)
