More For Me

filed under: Miscellaneous on November 20, 2008

I made cupcakes for our last Bible study.  We were doing potluck.  I brought about 12 with me.    The recipe was divine, but almost too sweet.  Even for me.  And be warned, I have never said those words in conjunction before in my life. 

Too Sweet. 

Even now it sounds weird.  Anyone see Top Chef last night?  I wanted to tell host lady to suck it up and don't you dare spit out that dessert!  Don't know where that came from.  Moving on.


They were double chocolate with semi-sweet chips in them.  VERY RICH.


I made the special buttercream frosting to put on top…


…and I came home with 8 cupcakes.  Out of 12.  With 8 women and 5 children all in attendance.


So I came home and ate 3.

Then I threw up cause it was ridiculous how much sugar that was.  And I'm pregnant and toss my cookies (cupcakes) at least once a day anyway.

But overall, I thought they were GREAT!

Oh well.

God bless-

    Hi there – saw you on Domestically Disabled and thought I’d come check you out. I, too, am pregnant, and am currently having a MAJOR sweet tooth craving yet am home with a sleeping toddler 35 mins from the nearest store and no goodies in sight. Your post nearly pushed me over the edge. I would’ve eaten your cupcakes!!! I’m going to go hunting through my cupboards for sugar crumbs now…

    Oh, now those look YUMMY!!!!!!!!!!! Girl…you’re good! I always make cupcakes and cakes look like they were made by 6 year olds.

    I actually haven’t “announced” my pregnancy on my blog yet – waiting to tell my step-daughter in person this weekend first. I’m only 10 weeks along – just in the really TIRED stage. And hungry for some reason!

    Sigh. This post is just cruel. Those look INCREDIBLE! There is nothing sweet in this house but the bottom of the bowl Halloween candy rejects. Ugh.

    Whoo-hoo they look fantastic. My boys would NOT have let them go free at a Bible Study! You can find me (whatever that means!!) on
    Now, with thoughts of cupcakes dancing in my head, I must venture out into the 19 degree weather and pump gas. Sigh. Minnesota is a silly state.

    these look fabulous!! however, i would have put peanut butter in there somehow and left off the icing. not a big icing person… unless its caramel…

  • Kristin says:

    I would have eaten one for sure if I had been there! I struggle with my severe sweet tooth. 🙂
