There's a big shocker, right? ha!
So naturally I love frosting. A-what's not to love? B-it involves sugar C-and also usually cake. Mmmm....cake.....
I have frostings that I use frequently, some are great, some are ok. I've never quite reached the perfect consistency and taste at the same time. At least as far as cake frosting. Cookies I'm good with. But cake.....still searching.
Until this week.
For the aforementioned baby shower (previous post), I made cupcakes. This required practicing the frosting.
Enter the husband. The picky about sweets husband. He doesn't much like the frosting I usually make. So this is a good test. He tasted it and replied with "Wow. That's the best frosting you've ever made!"
And later that night as we were headed to bed he snuck out to the kitchen. When he finally returned to our bedroom he walked in with a grin and a half full mouth.
When he swallowed he finally spoke.
"Do you know what's better than a cupcake?"
"Three cupcakes and a glass of milk!"
Three more comments about the frosting at the shower today. Very nice.
Mission accomplished-Frosting perfected.
Also, just in case you were wondering, I ate this for dinner last night:

Today wasn't a bad day. A little hectic, but that's pretty much par for the course. If you lived here I think you'd agree.
This afternoon I had the pleasure of attending a baby shower for a friend who also happens to live just down the street. It is always so fun to get together with a bunch of cute ladies and eat entirely too much. Also to see all the cute little girly things being doled out to the cute girl having the baby.
(also, baby girls are taking over my neighborhood. Not one person that I know of who is due between now and June is having a boy. And including the two that gave birth in the past two weeks, that is what....7? 8? people....Wow. It's lovely!)
While enjoying myself at the shower, my cell phone rang. It was the kids. (I was just a few houses down the street, figured they'd be fine for an hour) Blah, blah, blah...."be nice to each other, I'll be home soon." 10 minutes later, same drill. Then again and again...5 phone calls. Things were breaking down at home, so I dutifully left the shower and returned home to put it all back together.
I'm responsible like that you know.
Anyway-as I was leaving the shower-and let's be honest, not thrilled at what I was headed to-my neighbor's cute little almost 3yr old girl ran to the door in her princess dress-ups. After I was down the front walk she got the door open and yelled "Goodbye Miss Catey! I'll miss you! I love you! Come back again! I love you! I miss you!"
Maryanne, please tell your cute little Tanner thank you for making my day.
