{ CUPCAKE LOVE } FRIDAY’S FAB FINDS ♡ Part II: Chocolate Ganache Cupcakes, with Violet Decorations!

My Mom loves Ina Garten.  She doesn’t just enjoy her, she doesn’t just get a kick out of her, she LOOOOOOOVES her show.  And when her show is on the tele, guess who gets a call?  That’s right.  But you know what?  I love itI look forward to it.

And that’s because she clues me into delightful desserts like this one here:

I didn’t appoint my Mom “Dessert & Tablescape Inspiration Finder” for nothing.  I didn’t think, “ooohhh she’s a woman, so she likes baking, and other womanly things that women do… she’s perfect.”  NO.  I did it because she’s THE REAL DEAL.  She’s tapped into the minds of the collective.  She’s got cupcake game, if I may coin a term.  She’s knows what looks yummy.  Which all translates to: she’s very mainstream with her likes and dislikes.  ;)

Like I’ve said recently, I have full confidence in her abilities.

So, I’d love to hear it – what do you think of her talent?

Be honest, however she’s definitely reading this so be kind in your honesty… if that is even a possible thing.

Love all of this...

Today, I love…

Cutely packaged cupcakes +

Lemon frozen yogurt and raspberry pops (reminds me of how I sometimes call my dad “Popsicle”) +

Design exercise for your brain (brings me back to my earliest drawings, which always started w/ some random squiggle on a blank page… inside of my history notebook… while spacing out in class) +

Check in first thing tomorrow for some seriously stellar bridal shower inspiration.  (This one had me at pink peonies… and closed the deal with chocolate ganache centered espresso macarons.  So, you know, check it out, if you’re into that sort of thing.)

Love all of this...
