Lemon Dream with Lemon curd filling

While we were in AZ, I tried a new cupcake. I had to. . . I found lemon curd at Trader Joes, and it just BEGGED me to created a cupcake for it. I decided on white cake with lemon zest, lemon curd filling, and citrus cream cheese frosting. And the tartness was the perfect balance to the sweet frosting. . .

I have decided to call it "Lemon Dream" because, frankly, it was dreamy. I hate that things like lemon curd have to be refrigerated! I want to make filled cupcakes more often!

Bad cell phone photo of the finished product

Please don't judge the decorating job. I was far from home without my tools, so I had to improvise and pipe the frosting with a ziploc bag. . . but what they lacked in beauty, they made up for in taste.

Oh Sweet Sadie, Part 2

It's another weekend of Oh Sweet Sadie! This weekend the show is spread through 3 houses! And holy cow, Daybreak is a beautiful place.

I want to move in.

Right now.

Come out and check it out. It's so much fun. You'll get sucked in and want to spend lots and lots of money. I can promise you that.

Remember, Mother's Day is coming up. . . I'm just saying

This is the house my stuff is in. Isn't that gorgeous!

And a little sneak peak of my display.

It's right inside the front door, you can't miss it!

(yes, I realize the irony in calling the company "Just Cupcakes" and then selling sugar cookies. but there was a need, and I filled it. Can you blame me?)
