Velvety comfort

Well..I'm a bit disappointed with some things... the school superintendents for this county we live in for one thing... Our weather has been uncomfortable to say the least and other counties were allowed to have two hour delays to school starting.. Nope not our county!

The school district that we live in sooo rural! I would say over half the children live in the out lying areas where they plow...but don't salt..and it's very rough getting out in the morning.. okay..okay..enough belly aching! #3 started to cry this past morning when they had to go to school and others had a delay..It broke my heart! So...I dug out my can of red velvety goodness and made these cupcakes for the boys! Mom can't get Spring here any faster but, by George... I can add a little sweetness!

You guys near "Sprinkles" are sooo lucky! This fab place is 'to die for' I is the best we can do up here in the Artic tundra.
I found that Williams-Sonoma carries these mixes..sorry you guys didn't find my last post interesting... I'm tellin''s a awesome store. If I can get DH home long enough (he travels alot with our 'other' business ), he promised to go to one of their cooking classes with me.

Yup...#3 gave them his seal of approval.. there were red grins all around.

Have a fab Wed. evening...

***Okay.update... I want to ask for folks forgiveness who have visited my store and thought "oh my gosh, she's crazy! I'm not paying that for shipping..." I had relied on another web designers input and didn't realize the shipping costs were so out of wack!! Nobody will pay attention to your business like you... So again.. I hope you fabulous ones will go back and visit my store again.. again, my apologies!!! Shipping has been adjusted for now and I will go back in the A.M and work on it some more. gosh, I feel like such a fool! ****

You did a good job of being a "Sprinkle of goodness" to your boys. I saw on the Sprinkles web page that they are thinking of starting a new store in Minneapolis. Closer to you than Los Angeles.
But keep baking, who knows you may give them a run for their money!

I have not heard of Sprinkles. Thanks for the heads-up, I will have to pay there web site a visit. The cupcakes and the red grins look like a wonderful way to spend a winter's day.

Stay warm, sweetie.


BTW I did something very similar in shipping costs in an e-bay auction once. I used a shipping calculator and somehow I was charaging $30 to ship a tablecloth....good grief!! LOL!! Oh, well, live and learn:)
