Fall is here!!!

I'm breaking out of my aversion-to-strangers bubble very slowly. It will take a little bit of work, but this here blog seems to be helping. Of course... this is the internet, so it's a lot easier to be comfortable around people I don't know. I will eventually break out into the world!

We're just DAYS away from it being officially FALL!! Those that know me know fall is my favorite season. Like, ever. Who doesn't like that it's not the temperature of lava outside anymore?!?! The leaves are changing colors.. most of them are various shades of brown because of the extreme drought we were in over the summer. Pumpkin Spice Latte is back at Starbucks! My birthday is in this wonderful season! Depending on the calendar you use, sometimes my birthday falls on the first day of fall! Thanksgiving and Christmas are right around the corner! Which brings me to the reason of this post: seasonal cupcakes!

I know September is almost over but I'll still share with you the Cupcakes of the Month!

Apple Pie Cupcake!

Caramel Apple Cupcake!

Fresh Apples and Cheddar Cupcake!

We're working on specials for October and November. They might include S'Mores. I think that would be a good idea. And you know November has to include some kind of Pumpkin!

I'm international!

*insert music here* 

I've been in countries and cities I can't pronounce and places on the globe I didn't know existed..


So... I was looking at the 'stats' of my blog and I am completely shocked that I've gone international. I'm not entirely sure why or how, but I'm certainly not complaining! That's so cool!!

My blog has been read in Russia, Canada, the UK, the Netherlands, Germany, Indonesia, Australia, Spain, and Singapore! I find this unbelievably awesome, just so ya know! Am I Googleable (that's a mouthful!)? Is it because I share my blog on my Facebook page? However it happens, I'm okay with this.



I just realized that means my phone number has been passed around the world. Ahh, the power of the internet. *insert brief anxiety attack here*

But in all seriousness, this makes me want to do even more on here. 

But like I said in my last entry... I think I'm only going to commit to once a week. If I get more posted then it'll be like a kid on her birthday! Surprise!

Confessions of a Caramel Apple Pop Cupcake

I've been trying my best to get back into the habit of blogging. I think I need to commit myself to one post a week... Instead of everyday. Because, let's be realistic.. My life isn't all that interesting and there's only so many cupcake recipes a person can post without getting repetitive.

While browsing through some of my favorite blogs, Confessions of a Cookbook Queen being my absolute favorite.., I've come to the conclusion that I NEED to make these Caramel Apple Pop cupcakes. These would be great for Halloween parties. Or just a snack. Just FYI: these would have to be for the 21+ crowd. While I'm like, 99.34523355% sure that the alcohol bakes out of them since they are only 15% alcohol... I don't want to take any chances. I don't want people saying, "That cupcake girl gave me cupcakes and now my kids can't stand up straight!".

I've been sooooooo busy the last couple of weeks with my growing cupcake business. I'm proud to say, thanks to Mi Madre, I now have business cards, brochures, and flyers with cupcakes of the month!

And because of this.. I have to get over my anxiety of people I don't know having my phone number. Well, I guess that's not the case. I know the people that order from me aren't shady characters. =) My anxiety comes from my phone number being out there... on the Internet... and in people's pockets... and hanging up on bulletin boards in unknown locations. But, I shall cast that aside! Here's my cell phone number! Call me or text me if you are interested in placing an order.


I do your everyday cupcakes: Chocolate, white, red velvet, etc...
I do custom cupcakes: Anything your mind dreams up (Within reason, of course!).

Custom orders do require 2 weeks notice because I have to come up with a recipe and make sure everything is doable and perfect  for you before you actually need it.
