Dreaming of cupcakes...

mood: silly
craving: a cupcake

As Salam Alikom (Peace be with you) my dear sisters and hola to all my non-Muslim readers.

Who wants a nice, delicious, beautiful, little cupcake?

 A couple weeks ago, it was my turn to cook for our Friday lunch. I was all hyped up because I was gonna be cooking for a lot of people.  On Thursday we went to one of my best friend's home <=== (click, after you read my entry) and baked over 120 strawberry, orange and chocolate cupcakes (mini ones AND regular sized). That's a lot, right? We decorated them at my in laws the next morning.

The frosting was delectable; it was made of cream cheese, butter, powdered sugar and vanilla. We then separated the icing into little bowls and mixed a rainbow of colors into the frosting. After that we slathered the frosting on the faces of the cupcakes and decorated them with a sprinkle of sugary fairy dust, in the form of little bitty morsels of sugary goodness. Everyone raved over these little cake puffs of love.

Unfortunately, I baked too many and didn't even bother popping a cupcake in my mouth. After you bake too much of the same thing, you don't wanna eat it, you just want everyone else to enjoy.

Jummah Mubarak (Have a blessed Friday) to all my Sisters out there. God's willing, have a GREAT day. May Allah give us good in this life and the hear after and give us patience in our daily lives and help all our brothers and sisters going through trails ameen  Don't forget to read Surat Al-Kahf (the cave)

pictures taken with my bb. bad quality. :(

final whisper: dedicated to Um Rania. My love - thoughts and prayers are always with you and your beautiful family.

Delicioso! I love cupcakes. They are personal cakes just for YOU!

Why am I just now finding your blog?! *slaps forehead*
"Roses are red,
Violets are blue,
oh blog,
where have you boo"

I can't remember how the last part goes. I need to sign off. It's getting late, hence the nonsensical comments.

I love the reminders/ayats you put at the end of your posts.

Keep up the nice work ;)
