The Good vs. The Bad …

Yep. That cupcake is the good.  And I’m talking the REAL good.  Any treat that embodies all that is lovely about s’mores is so good in my book.  I made these babies for Big C’s Cross Country end-of-season banquet. There may or may not have been a fight between to Sophomore girls over the last one.

Unfortunately, while making these cupcakes, some peanut butter bars and a pan of sticky buns, I lived up to my self imposed moniker of “The Messy Chef”. That meant that when I walked out the door to go church yesterday, my kitchen looked like this:

And that was just the beginning of the bad.  Five minutes after I took this picture, I was in a car accident.

We are all fine.  Our van is not.  My pride is also damaged. Grrr…

But oh, those cupcakes were yummy.

I’m back to blogging, and for the next few days (or week) I’ll let you know about all the fun I’ve been up to with lots and lots of pictures to help tell the tale.

I’ve missed you!

Missed you too!

Those finished cupcakes look worth fighting for!

I feel your pain on the car snafu. Have you looked at the outside of my car recently? Not a pretty sight at all.

Just thinking about that makes me crave one of your cupcakes.

Car crashes of any sort are unnerving. You have my complete sympathy. It appears the precious cupcake cargo was secured with a seat belt. Thank goodness for that! Way to go Sam.
