Okay, so I may have rushed in judgment of "Cupcake Wars." I just finished watching last week's episode and I kinda fell in love. This was a really sweet challenge and I loved the winner so much. She and her sister's story is so much like my own that it was scary. And the fact that self taught bakers beat out Kara, of  the Kara's Cupcakes empire, gave me so much inspiration. Maybe it was just a great episode. It made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
With that said, I really can't stand that French judge. He is depressing and mean. Like, it's a friggin cupcake. What do you want from it. Cupcakes are supposed to make people happy and nostalgic. He takes all of the happy out of cupcakes. And the host is slightly annoying, and I know he's just trying to be funny with all of his cupcake and baking references, but he's just not. I can imagine being in that kitchen frantic with time running out and I have to keep hearing him yell stuff across the set. I'd just want to smack him. I'm sorry.
All in all I guess the show is growing on me, but I still can't say that I love it, I will just retract my previous statement that is sucks and move on from here.

DC Cupcakes hasn't disappointed. It's entertaining and they are funny. A little bit more of a mess than I thought they would be, but it's cute. They kind of don't really have it together, but who does, and it always comes together in the end. Well at least in the three episodes I've seen.
I'll keep watching both!

There is hope...

As excited as I was for Cupcake Wars, it saddens me to have to say this. That show SUCKS!!! I's awful, almost painful to watch. I would elaborate, but there are just too many reasons. That french judge for one, but I'm not going to go there.
But alas, there is hope for reality cupcake TV. Tonight TLC premiers DC Cupcakes. It's different from CW as it's not a competiton, but I'm hoping that it will satisfy my craving for sweet TV!!
Back to back episodes tonight at 10 on TLC.

Milk and cookies... but not really

You know I’m all about the cupcake, but, sometimes a girl just needs and tall glass of milk and some good old chocolate chip cookies.

As much as we love these sweet treats, we can’t indulge as much as we might like to. After all, like old the saying goes; A moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips.
Well, my new favorite site and blog of the moment dispels all fears of waistband expansion and allows you to treat yourself to all of the cupcakes and cookies you’d like.

Milk and Cookeez- a yummy bath shoppe
You will not believe your eyes, you will be so tempted to taste these body pastries, but please don’t. They are soaps people. And bath bombs and lip scrubs. They are the cutest little inedible bits of happiness I’ve ever seen. I feel so happy just looking at the site. Everything looks so yummy and makes me feel like a kid. I have visions of my future cupcake boutique and I see Milk and Cookeez items being big sellers there.

These sweet treats are not just for you. Share them. If you have one of those kids who just never wants to take a bath, one purchase from Milk and Cookeez might make your life so much easier. What kid wouldn’t want to wash up with a Popsicle, or an ice cream cone? Seriously, I would love to take a bath with a cupcake. And with the high quality ingredients Milk and Cookeez uses, you might want to hide these goodies from the kids and keep them all to yourself.
Check out the site and the blog; you’ll love it!

Oh and the super cute site is another product of that Mammalicious Amy Sheppard. No wonder I loved it so much. I love her work!
