8th Cupcake Sunday

Happy Cupcake Sunday!!!



Hello Everyone,


Paula Deen's done it again.  "I Love Paula Deen" I buy her cake mixes at Big Lots for $1.95 each.
The frosting was inexpensive also.  
A Big Shout out~Thank You to my daughter and granddaughter for the wonderful assist with decorating the these cupcakes...  My daughter volunteered her time today helping build a small park in an older neighborhood of our city. After the morning activities were done at the park and the younger granddaughter was off to a birthday party.  The oldest granddaughter (11) wanted to get out of the sun and visit grandma while her mother continued her commitment at the park.  My granddaughter settled into the patio swing and she asked if I would teach her how to knit.  Yep.  And the afternoon went by very quickly for her.  She sat on the patio swing watching television and knitting. Now That's A LIFE. When my daughter came over later for dinner she brought two big pizzas to bake.  Wow!!  What a treat  not to cook a large meal  or clean up the dishes tonight.  After dinner we decorated the  Red, White and Blue cupcakes.  In Honor of the men and women that have given their life in service so we can enjoy our freedom in America  today. 


After the girls left for home. (they live seven houses up the street) Sweetheart and I watched
 'The Kings Speech'
Awesome movie.




The Roses are going wild outside, now that the warm weather has finally arrived. I have bouquets in every room.  
This fabulous rose is called 'Crystalline'  


I have made an administrative decision.  After I return from my trip to England and Scotland I' m going to take a cake decorating class.  Something is just not right with the texture of my frosting. And I don't know anything about the tips. But it sure is fun to bake cupcakes every four weeks and do a fun post for you all.


Little red, white and blue sugar sprinkles with little red and blue stars too. 


Remember the cute cupcake holder I received as a Christmas gift? 


Some red, white and blue cupcake papers.




I found the flag wreath at a yard sale just before the 4th of July 2010.  Cheap!!!!


 I love creating  mosaics. They just seen to say it all in a nut shell.
Thank you so much for visiting My Cozy Corner.

    Your Crystalline roses are stunning!

  5. I've never thought to buy cake mixes and such from Big Lot's. I will have to check that out. I do a lot of grocery shopping at the 99 cent store, it even carries produce! I like your red, white and blue cupcakes and vignette, thank you for sharing them on Masterpiece Monday, Mary :O)
