You will often find me up to my elbows in flour and sugar as I like to bake cookies, cupcakes and other sweet treats. I enjoy cooking just as much, but usually eat it before I can get a photograph taken!
I love to share recipes and ideas. 
Stop by and lets talk food!

These orange cupcakes have a yummy taste of almond.
I wanted to make a quick batch of cupcakes and began with a box of vanilla cake mix, I replaced the water with orange juice and added a teaspoon each of orange extract and almond extract.
I made buttercream frosting with half cup butter half cup shortening along with 6 cups powdered sugar and a teaspoon each of orange extract and almond extract, and a drop of orange and yellow Americolor food coloring. 
They were a big hit.
I decorated them with a 104 tip.
I placed the large end down and began working in a wavy pattern around the cupcake in two layers.
The almost reminded me of Mums, and with fall right around the corner they would be pretty all clustered together like a bouquet.
