Happy Birthday to Me!

All I asked the Universe for on my 60th birthday (Sept 23rd) was rain. It began raining at 2:30am and all the next day. Here we are standing on our wet private deck at the Albion River Inn, in Albion, CA. It's nice when the Universe listens.

Space Jam Cupcakes

I promise not to make a practice of sharing photos of ALL the cakes and cupcakes I bake so just indulge me on this one. I received a request from a little guy turning 11 for chocolate cupcakes. His favorite color was red and he wanted a "Space Jam" movie decoration theme. After giving up trying to find ANYTHING Space Jam-related in the stores or online, I decided to make my own cupcake picks (I also realized why no one else volunteered to take this order.) I found a Warner Bros website that allowed you to copy small posters from the movie --- they retain the copyright of course --- and I found the perfect logo picture. So I copied 24 of them in color, glued a long toothpick to the back of each and inserted one into each cupcake.

I guess I should be happy the younger generation even remembers this classic 1996 movie and I hope he was pleased with the result.

Plotting Kittens

Like Blogger friend Randy said "When they're close enough to whisper, you know they're plotting something."
This picture was too cute not to share again. They are certainly getting bigger.
Happy Labor Day everyone!
