my dad and sister are here visiting this weekend. so far we've had lots of fun, and to welcome them (and sort of just because i wanted to) i made some super yummy cupcakes!

i used this recipe for the yellow cupcakes, and this one for the chocolate cupcakes.

for the chocolate cupcakes, i made this frosting, which was really easy. then for the yellow ones, i added 2 drops of red food coloring to make it pink, and also just some more powdered sugar and milk to make it more of a glaze.

see the difference in the frostings?? both are equally delicious. then, of course i added a few red sprinkles to each one.

i ended up with 30 cupcakes in all -- hello, sugar coma. ;) the yellow ones were really good with the pink glaze, and the chocolate ones turned out almost like brownies -- so thick and chocolaty. perfect for breakfast with coffee. (sorry, diet)

even though i don't get to very often, i love baking. it's actually quite relaxing -- except then you have to clean up. bummer...

so far, the weekend's been a lot of fun. i'm not sure what we're going to do tomorrow, but the weather is wonderfullll down here right now, so anything would be good. beach? the park? who knows?!


kyle and i worked on some more decorating yesterday before my family arrived, so i'll try to post some more pictures of that -- plus i bought some more fun hooks at urban outfitters today, so when i find somewhere for those, i'll show them off. :)
