Cupcakes and Sophie

I'm busy baking today -- birthday parties and wedding showers -- grateful for the business and feeling wackadoodle. 

Vanilla Cupcakes with Pale Violet Frosting
Red Velvet Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting

This is one of Sophie's favorite poses -- she's folded herself up like an origami swan since she was a tiny girl. We used to joke that the caption for that pose should be my life is shit and leave me alone. (Even in the early days, a sense of humor prevailed!)


  1. Wow! Your cupcakes look magnificent! You are a pastry artist :)

  2. Your cakes are as beautiful as your writing. And Sophie is amazing - it strikes me often, looking at her pictures, that she knows what she needs.

  3. gorgeous cupcakes! and while you are wackadoodle baking, sophie curls up into child's pose and releases the stress for you. ahhh.

  4. I love the pose. I should remember it over the next several days and do it often. Smart girl.

  5. Erika - Thank you! Let's go into business together --

    A -- I've never thought of it that way because she's more like a folded pretzel, but yes.

    Mary - Thanks -- and that's an interesting thought --

    Angella - Yes!

    Birdie - I hope you feel less stressed soon. Perhaps a child's pose will help you!

  6. If you go into business with Erika, you can make mucous cupcakes and send them to insurance companies for a small, tax deductable fee.

  7. i can do that pose too
    yep... caption is perfect!

  8. Love that pale violet icing. Yum.

    Love love love that Sophie folds herself up. Seems so smart. xo

  9. Gorgeous! Both pictures. Something about seeing Sophie like that grounds me and makes me feel calm inside. I hope it does the same for her.

  10. I'm glad that your business is booming.
    The caption of that pose is brilliant. It could apply to several other poses I can think of, as well!
