Peanut Butter Cupcakes

There are a LOT of things on my to-do list and practically none of them involve studying.  (By practically none I mean…one of them is studying.)

I need to paint my nails in the spirit of Valentine’s Day.  I spent >30 minutes at CVS tonight choosing the PERFECT sparkly pink nail polish.  Also buying new mascara (other tube only has 75% left, clearly need more) and trying not to buy candy because obvi it will be on sale in 2 days.



Roasted Blueberry Cupcakes with Vanilla Buttercream

So, I’m on my OB/Gyn rotation right now.  On the OB part with the babies.  And the thing is that OB’s work a lot.  Like…a lot.

The main problem with this is not the loss of sleeping hours, although that is sort of a sad thing.  The main problem is that when you get up really early and your day is really long, you’ve created these extra meal times. (more…)

Bananas Foster Cupcakes

Real talk: I, Kate, am an obsessive person.

When I find something I like, I let it consume me. Until I find the next thing I can’t live without. I know that moderation is supposed to be the key to happiness or something like that. But I just don’t work that way. At all.

Let’s talk about some things I’m super in love with lately.


Margarita Cupcakes

Okay, so these are a little late for Cinco de Mayo celebrations. I(Kate) totally get that.

But here’s the thing: it’s been kinda a rough week. I hit my face on a door Wednesday in the middle of the night. No. Seriously. Cheekbone+ Doorjamb =my face. Oh, life. Then, I took a final on Thursday. I have a 20+ page paper due today (it’s written already, don’t worry). To top it all off, I have another final on Wednesday. Timing isn’t really what I’m focused on. Plus, do you really need a holiday as an excuse to make margs into cupcakes? (Answer: No.)

Also, I experienced some serious trauma on Cinco de Mayo. So I was a little distracted.

What was that, you ask? Oh. You know. Just a (mouse)RAT in my apartment. (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)


Guinness Cupcakes with Whiskey Buttercream and Whiskey Caramel Sauce

Today is a very special day!

Not only is it St. Patrick’s Day, but also (and more importantly) it is my nephew Casper’s birthday! He is three!

So cupcakes are for birthdays. But these cupcakes are not for three-year-old birthdays. They are more for St. Patrick’s Day.
