This weekend went by pretty quick. On friday i went on a hunting for a honey baked ham. My mom wanted one for christmas so I had to find one. They were sold out at 1 store so i had to drive across town to pick it up. Problem solved.
Saturday my cuzzo had a christmas party so I told her I'd make my red velvet cupcakes. I wanted an outside opinion about them. Here are some pics...
I think the icing makes them
I took them to the party and everyone loved them. Funny thing is I never like to be around when people eat my stuff. I just want to know after the fact. I hate the attention. people ask a bunch of questions, i just want a smile or a grunt, no more no less. So my aunt is telling me how good they were and my uncle is teasing me about baking red velvet. Even this dude who was a trained chef teased me. This bamma trained in france!!! I trained in PG county... lol good times... good times. The baby got to play with her cousins so she was in heaven.
On Sunday I took my neice shopping again. for the record I never bought the glasses. We were in a book store and she was drooling over some Twilight crap. I need to make a teanage movie to get rich. I asked her if she wanted the book for christmas? she said yeah, so I coped it for her. I'ma make her wrap it up and everything. Yes she will have to wrap her own gift, I hate wrapping presents. I was really considering putting the gifts in brown paper bags and stapling them shut.
Anyway sunday night I decided to bake this sweet potato pecan pie mocha dad sent me. Little did I know the thing would have to sit for 24hours before I could eat it! I was highly pissed. Here's a pic of it, unfortunately I don't know how it tastes yet:
I did realize something while I was baking. I really enjoy baking more than cooking, it's more relaxing. I kinda zoned out and listened to the football game as I baked up the pie. I swear I'd bake shyt all day if I didn't have to worry about eating it. I might just start selling baked goods out my trunk, right next to the t-shirts... lol
