Last time I posted, it was like, 1994. Ross loved Rachel. And now it's practically the end of March?
The first day of spring arrived. I'm still wearing my winter coat, but inside, I'm trying to make things appear balmy.
I love plants. Unfortunately, I'm not very good at remembering to water them. Tip: Plants need to be watered. Or they die.
But here's a tip: Invest in great foliage. My friend gave me a bouquet of pink gerberas with the greenery you see in the photo. The flowers lasted two weeks because I cut the stems twice a week, but this greenery is going on 5 weeks! So, once the flowers die, you can splurge on just a few more of your favourite flowers and you'll have another pretty arrangement for weeks!
For my birthday, one of my girlfriends gave me the best cupcake book ever. It's filled with recipes on how to turn your cupcakes into works of art. The only stipulation, my friend told me, was that I had to make her one of the cupcake creations. So tonight, as a thank you, I made this:
Isn't it cute? I wish I could take credit for the originality, but I can't. I just followed the recipe. Which is so simple, and I will now share with you:
1. Make mini cupcakes. Tip: Use a mix. It's easy!
2. Ice mini cupcakes using white icing. Tip: Use the kind in the tub. It's super sweet. Yum.
3. Buy package of multi-coloured mini marshmallows. Pick out the yellow ones and stick them on top of your cupcakes. Tip: Feel free to eat the pink ones to keep your strength up while decorating.
4. Buy popcorn container. Stuff with tissue paper halfway, then place mini cupcakes inside!
This weekend we're heading to Vegas. Four days of sun, cocktails, crepes, Cirque du Soleil and Criss Angel! I cannot wait. Neither can Mr. Baz. He will not get out of my suitcase.
