Woe is me...

There should be some type of Universal Mommy Award that is given out upon the completion of household stomach virus epidemic. Especially since Mommy will almost always get sick. It should be given in the form of a spa day once she is strong enough to enjoy it. And I think because I just made it up I should be the first recipient of said award. Don't you agree?

This was the worst possible weekend to be stricken down and have no choice but to lie in bed at the mercy of one's husband. (who took very good care of me I might add). BCC had two cupcake orders for this weekend I knew they both wouldn't get done. I had to sacrifice one order and dissapoint one little birthday boy who wanted basketball cupcakes, to let my body work against the evil forces. I will have to make it up to him somehow. I woke up this morning feeling weak, but 75% better than I did yesterday and for business sake I pulled out six dozen mini cupcakes. Surgical mask and all. That was all I had in me. Back the bed I went. In the end, tomorrow is a new day; hopefully I will be 100% by then, because the day time job doesn't stop either.

Love is in the air...

This Sunday Valentine's Day will be two weeks away! I am super excited!
Valentine's Day is my favorite holiday. I love all the hearts and the pink and the sweets, cupcakes of course!
One of my favorite sites for cupcake paraphernalia is, and as usual they did not disappoint. They have created some of the cutest V Day cupcake looks that i've seen this year. I am so inspired. I can't wait to put together some looks of my own.

I will definitely be putting some of these on my V Day wishlist!
Keep checking back; my next few posts will be devoted to V Day and the part cupcakes play in the sweetest holiday of the year.

Here are some pictures of my first order!
I think they look pretty good for the first time.

I am such a bad blogger...

I have not blogged in weeks, weeks that is unacceptable. I wish I could say that I have been extremely busy and just didn't have time, but that is so not the case. I have just had somewhat of a writer's block. So I thought. It seems as if the only way to get past the block is to write, so here goes.

In the past few weeks I have filled my first two real orders! And I have two more orders to fill this month and one already scheduled for February. So somehow when I wasn't looking Babycakes Couture became a real business. I am up and running and super excited! This year has started off amazingly and I can't wait to see what the Universe has instore for Babycakes Couture for the rest of 2010!
