Give a Little Heart and Soul

Hello readers! I am still singing the songs from the concert, and since my back is feeling a little better, I am in a chipper mood! So today, I tried out my newest baking pan that my boyfriend ordered for me, from Debbie Meyer. It has this little attachment that creates a hole in your cupcakes to add filling. A couple years back, there was a place in the North End of Boston called Tranny. They made ice-cream-injected cupcakes and we talked about going, but they closed before we ever really went. So this idea of filled cupcakes has been in the back of our collective appetites for a while now. And finally, FINALLY I have filled cupcakes! It's not ice cream, but it is a frosting overload and I love it. :)

I've made my pattern for my "minis" that I've added to my shop, and I've started the first one that was ordered Friday night. Hoping to finish it to send out tomorrow. It's a custom order and she wants a mini version of my Rainbow Kitty. I'll post pictures as soon as it is finished. I added these to my store because a couple people on the Etsy forums mentioned the price being a slight deterrent, so these little guys will be half the size, and thus, half the price.

I got some fun things in the mail this weekend! A Christmas present that I ordered for a family member from The Curious Cupcake came this weekend and it is even prettier in person. They included a free gift with my purchase and a personalized thank you note. I was so impressed and definitely recommend them! I also got my business cards that I ordered from Moo a while back and I love them! I got the smallest package to try them out because they are a bit pricier than generic business cards, but I love that you can put photos of your products on the back and include your own graphics. I think these will definitely make a statement and get people to my shop, not just tossed in the trash. Do you have business cards? What do you think?

Well, I'm off to work on my custom order. I hope you are all enjoying your Monday!


  1. The cupcakes sound delicious! Glad you're feeling well today!
    I don't do business cards, but I'm not really a business. I just like to sew and show.

  2. Thank you! I've seen people with mommy calling cards...have you heard of those? They crack me up!


Thank you so much for visiting! I love to hear feedback!
