Throwing parties & baking cupcakes . . .


For Bill’s birthday, we had a few of his friends over for cake and champagne.  (Well, truth be told, cupcakes and cava, but same difference.)  I baked up my favorites – Duncan Heines out of a box, doctored up with a little lemon zest for authenticity.  I also made the little cake toppers using a photo of Bill as a kid (he was on the front page of his hometown paper doing a painting project – so apropos, right?) turned into little stickers via Shutterfly & stuck onto lolipop sticks.  I am a huge fan of incorporating photos into party decorations (go figure).
