As the resident cake maker, I had to make my cake before I could have my cake and eat it too. But Josh was an excellent sous chef (is it a sous chef if you’re baking?) and dish washer. We froze a few of the 40-some-odd cupcakes because the twins are trying chocolate for the first time later this week and they asked for a chocolate cake (we’re going to eat chocolate at least twice before their birthday party just because it would really suck to have an allergic reaction right after blowing out your birthday candles).

Happy Blogoversary to me (and, of course, I doctored the photo with Microsoft Paint)

We frosted them with chocolate or vanilla icing. And left all of them undecorated. Why? Because a decorated cupcake is a finished product. There’s no room to grow. And my blog? It’s still a work in progress. It’s not yet ready for an icing rose to finish off the top.

We brought the cupcakes downtown to Josh’s office and fed them to his coworkers who unknowingly helped me celebrate a year of blogging.

Happy Blogaverary!!

How true about leaving the cupcakes undecorated… Each confection needs to be a masterpiece – and we are creating our masterpieces daily, aren’t we?

Happy blog birthday!

I liked your statement about leaving the cupcake undecorated as your blog was still a blog in progress. (And that cupcake would have been decorated for me, the swirls are very impressive).

I haven’t been able to open your blog for a while because it crashed my computer. Now I have a new computer, and I am glad to finally be able to open you up again!

Happy Blogoversary! Thanks again for all that you do. I don’t know what I’d be doing with myself today if I hadn’t stumbled upon SQSPJ when I was looking for some info on prometrium. What lucky luck! Hugs!!!

Ok Mel, I keep trying to upload my pic of my cake so that I can post it and my internet keeps dropping me. I don’t know if I will be able to make it work or not.
