Alison's 26th Birthday Cupcakes

So I'm a little behind in my blogging, but now that the wedding has come and gone, I have a little time to catch up now. Alison's 26th birthday was back in September, and she and Will had a party. Unfortunately it was a half birthday half going away party, since Will got a BIG promotion and they moved to San Marcos. Here are the dark chocolate cupcakes with cream cheese icing....

And here is me with Alison and Lauren at the party. It was so sad to see Alison move to San Marcos, but so exciting at the same time. :)

Looking Forward to Thanksgiving

I've been thinking a lot lately about Thanksgiving. It is coming up in two weeks, and Alex and I are hosting it at our house this year. I have been mentally planning a menu, and, being the avid baker I am, I am thinking about the dessert first. I am planning on making a pumpkin chocolate cheesecake. And, I have this one cookbook that shows you how to make cupcakes that look like little bowls of mashed potatoes. I can't wait to make them! Pictures to follow....
