Friday Friends, Firemen and Funny Peeps

“You never forget a beautiful thing that you have made,’ [Chef Bugnard] said. ‘Even after you eat it, it stays with you – always.”
― Julia Child, My Life in France

I had all the ingredients set out last night so I could get up early and start my baking frenzy. As I opened the fridge to take out the eggs, oh no, only two eggs. So, off to the store I went. Foolish me, I thought I’d have time to make frosting, bake and decorate ten dozen cupcakes in the morning, take a long walk, and be out of the house by two. Ha! But, I did manage to post my progress hourly on my Facebook page. Here’s the progress.

Set out ingredients, then go to the store for the eggs I forgot.

Make a funny face with the cake mix and eggs.

Make two batches of cream cheese frosting. Vanilla and chocolate.

The chocolate cupcakes had a dollop of cherry pie filling, the yellow had a peach slice.

Frost and decorate a zillion cupcakes and mini cupcakes…then share with friends.

Justin and Karri…my good friends at Papa Murphy’s Pizza. Hi guys!

Firefighter Taylor over at Station #1. He looks pretty pleased.

The firemen at Station #2 invited me inside. On my way out, I found a lucky penny next to the fire truck. ( a very lucky sign. Someone up there saying, “Good job!”)

My senior friends at Towne creek loved the cute cupcakes, too. I took a few over to my friend Lynne’s house, and took a few over for the triplets next door. BUT… I ran out of peeps. Oh no. I had more cupcakes to decorate for tomorrow. I went to three stores tonight and everyone was out of the bunny peeps. So, I ended up having to buy some yellow chick peeps at Walgreens. I have a few more firehouses to get to tomorrow. (I was disappointed at first, but then I thought…huh, those cute firemen are “chick magnets,” so it will be quite appropriate.)
So, here’s to all my “PEEPS” out there.
