Cake Shakers

That's what Lisa and I are going to call our cupcake business someday.  Oh, don't be looking for it anytime soon -- considering the fact that it took us about 6 hours to turn out 48 cupcakes, we won't be quitting our regular jobs anytime in the near future.  But we did have a great time baking together and it was a fun way to spend a day.  These recipes came from Pinterest and are pinned on my "Party Food Ideas" board.  Triple Lemon Cupcakes and Ghirardelli Chocolate and Strawberries Cupcakes -- both were yummy and worth repeating.
The Triple Lemon Cupcakes were very lemony!  The lemon cake was dense, more like a pound cake, with a lemon curd filling and cream cheese lemon frosting.  If you like lemon, this one's for you.  The Ghirardelli Chocolate Cupcakes were dipped in a chocolate ganache and then topped with strawberry cream cheese frosting.  The chocolate cake had a dark chocolate flavor with some strong coffee in it -- yum!    
All this baking was for a bridal shower that we hosted on Sunday afternoon for our friend Stephanie, who graduated last year from our high school youth group at church.  Unfortunately, we didn't take any pictures of our baking process and when it came time for the shower, we were a little rushed getting everything ready between the time church was out and 2:00 shower time -- so there was no time for professional foodie pictures.


 Congratulations, Stephanie!
