Christmas Wrapup

Okay i know its after Christmas but Ive been so busy and then got snowed in for 2 days in which i should have been blogging but i was napping lol which is very unlike me lol.
For Christmas Day I helped my mom cook dinner for l5 people i made this cupcake tower for the table . I was going to make canolis but i messed up the filling note to anyone who is going to make them do not over beat, that wasn't in the directions and i did lol.

My tree


I made tons of cookies for Christmas but these were my favorite of all you can see the rest on my flickr.

I made about 15 cookie baskets for gifts in an effort to save some money and get all my Christmas ideas into cookie form lol






I was pretty much running around getting everything ready for a few days but a belated Merry Christmas to all!!!

Cupcake Girls... Rant

Warning! This is a rant so im warning you now lol.
I'm sitting here making fondant snowflakes for Christmas cupcakes and i turn of this show cupcake girls they are in Canada. This show majorly pisses me off ,these 2 girls decided to open up a cupcake shop but they can't bake! WTF "Oh we like cupcakes lets open a shop and hire other people to do it for us" Honestly i find that insane . Also unfair to people who work hard at baking and can't get their own shops. Also they have a wedding cake decorator who doesn't know how to make cakes , I didn't even know that was possible lol. This episode their whole staff quit on them and they have all this work to do and no bakers so they have to do it themselves but they don't know what they are doing lol. If they were actual bakers they could have picked up the slack really easily themselves but no . They are complaining soo much because they had to stay up all night baking do you know how many times i have done that and all my lovely baker friends have done the same on a daily basis its something that comes with the territory. They don't even wake up early to come into the shop the one girl was complaining about getting up at 7 am lol.
Dear WE channel you guys should have a show on a bakery whose owners can actually bake there are so many great cupcake shops out there who would have an amazing show .
This is just my opinion as a baker you don't have to agree with me lol.
End Rant!

Money Saving Gift Wrap Idea

So everyone knows these days saving money is the best way to go so i thought id share a fun idea for gift wrap. I myself don't like traditional Christmas wrapping paper .
Here's a great way to save some money buy a jumbo roll of a pattern that is a regular pattern ,Nashville wraps has some awesome prints and a 24 x100 roll for $16.
All you have to do is change the ribbon ,tags,and embellishments for each holiday.
Here is what i did for Christmas this year i can use for birthdays or other holidays as well.



Sorry for the bad lighting on the picture lol if you have any questions feel free to leave a comment below.

Model controversy lets discuss lol



Todays hot topic Too thin models yes or no?

I was on yahoo news and i read the article on the new winner of Americas next top model. Personally i haven't watched that show in awhile but reading the comments i decided this would be a great topic .Above is a picture of the girl who won yes she is super thin she claims to be naturally that thin alot of people are saying there is no way thats possible. I have a friend Ive know since i was 5 and she has always been scary skinny since that age to now and she eats alot some people are just built that way. Someone commented that its a bad image for teenage girls normally i would say yes if it was say a regular tv show but its a modeling show and lets be honest its pretty rare that normal sized girls become runway models so i don't think its that bad it more realistic. I do agree that most runway models are not pretty , there are some beautiful ones but most i see are pretty strange looking but really skinny. I'm on both sides of the topic i don't wanna see sick girls modeling but i don't think you should talk trash on this girl if she really is naturally skinny . To skinny or to big both sides get hell for it.

Personally i think models should just look like Adriana Lima lol

she has a beautiful face she thin but not bones shes got a butt and has boobs in my eyes shes perfect lol picture of her below


So everyone lets talk what do you think ?say it all!!
