Oh my pretzels, guys!
This, That, and the Other Thing turns the big 2 today!
It seems like just yesterday that I started this little passion project of mine. What at first started out as an online diary of sorts, chronicling all of my crazy, funny, and amazing life moments, has really turned into much more than that. Over the past two years, I have grown.
As a person.
As a writer.
As a friend, and a sister, and a student, and a dreamer.
I have gone through so much these last two years, the highest of highs, the lowest of lows, and all of the in-betweens. Looking back, I can’t believe how much has changed, how much I have changed. And you guys have been there with me, every step of the way!
To all of my friends, my family, my readers and fans.
Thank you for sticking with me, for inspiring me, for making me smile and laugh and strive to be better.
If the last two years are any indication, the next two years are sure to bring many surprises and I for one cannot wait to share them with you!
You can’t have a birthday without cupcakes, right?!
To celebrate This, That, and the Other Thang’s 2nd birthday (or the fact that it’s officially a week before the Brewer’s opening day, or that it’s Sunday, or that you successfully fulled off matching socks today, or, well, do you really have to have a reason to make cupcakes? I didn’t think so.), I decided to share with you one of my fav’s
Ahh, who can resist a cute mini cupcake with colorful confetti sprinkles?? A simple vanilla cupcake with vanilla buttercream frosting is my absolute, 100%, no-holds-bar favorite kind of cupcake.
They’re cute and tiny and colorful and remind me of the Easter parties we used to have in elementary school. And…the good thing about making them pint-sized is that you don’t have to feel guilty about eating
I used Sweetapolita’s Fluffy Vanilla Cake recipe for these cupcakes, and I’m going to just send you over there to get it. The cupcakes were gorgeous, light, airy, fluffy, and impossibly moist. Everything that this girl wants in a vanilla cupcake. Even when made mini — and that my friends is hard to do! A perfect vanilla cupcake.
I am telling you, this stuff is lethal. I’m talking grab-a-spoon-and-go-to-town lethal!
It’s so light and fluffy and tastes ahhhmazing!
Once your cupcakes are cool (wait at least a half-hour to an hour to let your cuppycakes completely cool down), lather on some of that delicious frosting, making sure to lick the spoon once you’re done, and then sprinkle your, um, sprinkles on top
Have a great rest of your night everybody! And thank you again! You all are the bomb.com
