a cupcake story!

christmas cuppies!

I made some christmas cupcakes this morning.. well really, I made the bases last night and finished them this morning. arent they cute? I have a funny cupcake story to tell you!


so you know Ive been on this faux cupcake kick since this summer and have made them for every holiday and occasion right?

baking faux cuppiecakes again!

they just look so real and they look great sitting on the kitchen counter on a wire tiered rack.


They also have made sweet little ornaments!

My husband and family of course think i'm nuts and well, I probably am! They have gotten used to seeing non edible cupcakes in the kitchen.. nothing unusual here!

So, after the shower last weekend, there were a bunch of cupcakes left sitting on the rack and I just left them out thinking someone would eat them (pic below). Anyways after a few days they were gettign a little hard and I asked my husband if he cared if I threw them away. He wondered why he would care... I wondered why he hadnt eaten any! He said "@%#&* #%$@^ Vivian I dont know whats real and what s not around here. How the hell was I supposed to know I could eat those!"


Whoopsie!! guess I forgot to tell him! but I definitely told him not to eat the christmas cupcakes I made today.. he said he wouldnt even think of it! the poor man!


there were too cupcakes in the oven..... one looked at the other and said.. "geez its freaken hot in here!" The other looked at the first one and said... "holy shit! a talking cupcake!"

hahhahhheeeeeheee haa!

sorry I love that stupid joke!

sweet dreams girlie pies!

Oh my gosh you cracked me up! Your poor husband, I laughed right out loud and even have tears in my eyes. I bet that was so funny . . . . well at least from your perspective! Thanks for the laugh, you are the best!

That is so funny! You should have a sign for edible and inedible! LOL said...

Now, your story just made my day. That's one funny story, you should try putting a note for edible and non edible cupcake around your house, so your husband knows which one is edible or not. Thank you for sharing funny stories.

I love that story! I can totally picture Tony saying it, with a stone-serious expression on his face! ha!!
Well I can't wait to see you and have some fun real soon!
Enjoy your Thanksgiving and don't wear yourself out before Saturday!

Kai said...

YOU are even cuter than your wonderful cuppycakes! I love your joke! Poor hubby - but, that just PROVES how REAL your faux cupcakes look!

I am laughing so hard I have tears running down my face!! Thank you so much for that story, I certainly needed a good laugh. Ok, now I am going to do something that is very hard for me to do especially when I am home with only the furbabies as company. Ok give me a minute. Ok, now I got it I think. Ok, if I knew how to work the camera on the lap top you would see me down on my hardwood floors in the living room/family room of my house in my seal blue scrup top and doggies and snowflake pj bottoms, orange curly hair sticking up all over my head and not a hint of makeup on the pale white face I am doing all of this to beg yes I said BEG to be able to purchase some of your fake cupcakes for Christmas or some of the patriotic ones!!! You know I have a bad back and you don't want to know how long it is going to take me to get up from this business on the floor. But desperate times call for desperate measures! So please take pity on me and let me buy some. Just think how sweet they will look on my bedside table at the hospital for my surgery in Dec.
(I hope this helps and she lets me buy some cupcakes LOL)
Hugs and have a great day!!!

Oh, I laughed. When Mr. Bojo wakes up from his nap, I'll read that part to him about your husband. Oh, the things we put our husbands through!

Those ballerina cupcakes are magical! I love them so. I have ballerinas all over my Christmas tree.

They all look good enough to eat but to pretty to eat. You have a good hubby there! Hugs,Terri

OMG how hilarious that he didn't know which cupcakes were real! I wish I wasn't so intimidated to make faux cupcakes. Yours are awesome and you use the best cupcake liners for them too! I can't wait to see you this weekend!!! Pray that I'm not stuck at the border due to Thanks Giving and Black Friday!!!

I had no idea you were on a cupcake escapade! They are so darn cute Viv!
The joke is funny too...we gotta have laughter and good times even if it's at the expense of a poor cupcake in the oven!

I'm baking today myself which made it even more comical.

My love and laughter surround you as we count our blessings around the Thanksgiving table once again this year!

Thinking of you with a thankful heart you are my friend.

I am so glad I stopped by...I needed a good laugh!
Viv will you consider sharing your cupcake making with a tutorial or a secret email? I'd like to make some for gifts and for our tree!

Hugs, Dolly
