Karma Cupcakes.

If you aren't following me on Twitter (or were, you know, sleeping last night), here's what you missed:

That link leads to my post entitled "Humiliation and volunteerism. Also Girl Scouts don't eat cookies."  You may want to check it out before you continue.  And I'm not just fishing for clicks here, ok?  It's actually relevant.  And entertaining.  We'll wait.

Yes, Girl Scout leader suggested cupcakes.  I was relieved at first until I realized that instead of one big Girl Scout daisy, I now have to make 48 tiny Girl Scout daisies.  Doh.
Why do I always think cupcakes are easier??  They're not.

Buy one get one FREE, you guys.  It was clearly a sign.

The highlight of my night.  Who am I kidding?  The highlight of my week.

Oh yeah.  NaNoWriMo started yesterday.  Without me.
Twitter finally responded to my cries for help.
And no, they do not have fewer calories.  But I plan on telling Nike Mom they do.
Thanks, Mom.
This is important because I was making all the little daisy pieces out of fondant, and without white I couldn't make any colors other than the pre-colored red and blue I had on hand...which leads to some really poor imitations of the Girl Scout daisy.

Just for reference, this is what the Girl Scout daisy is supposed to look like.  Remember this for later:

Another link back to the Humiliation and volunteerism post.
Because seriously, if you haven't read that, none of this makes any sense.
Possibly none of this makes sense even if you have.  I was up really late last night, ok?


And...there goes my plan to make up for the humiliation of putting my daughter's Girl Scout membership on layaway by providing a super awesome cake for Founder's Day.

The good news?  They will never ask me to do this ever again.

Here's a closer shot, just so you can really see the full wreckiness.  Sorry for the terrible photography, I was pretty much over it last night:

OK.  Now my pride requires me to show you these, to erase those cupcakes from your memory and prove I'm legit:

I made this.

I made this.

I made this.

Whew.  I wonder if it would be weird to print these photos out and distribute them at the Girl Scout Founder's Day party?


  1. I actually think the cupcakes are pretty cute. But I never bake ANYTHING.

    And you can still catch up. I fell 10K words behind last year b/c of bronchitis. And somehow I pushed through. You can do it!!

  2. Those 5-year-olds won't know the difference. And yeah, bring the pictures.

  3. I actually saw the guilt cupcakes tweet last night. Nice form throwing in the photos at the end. Really redeemed yourself. :) I think the cupcakes are cute anyway.

  4. It was never the five-year-olds I was trying to impress.

  5. Thanks, and thanks! The cupcakes are NOT cute, but I do believe I will catch up with NaNo. We've got 29 days to go. :)

  6. You liar! :) See, my plan worked. You were so impressed with the photos at the end that your memory of the cupcakes is now skewed.

  7. They'll eat the cupcakes and love them! But I'll admit I LOVE your other cake photo's very nice!! Good luck with the NaNO!

  8. Maybe you should add a whole cake page to your blog. You've got lots of great cakes.

  9. Wow you are awesome and the cupcakes are beautiful if filled with guilt. Hope you've caught up on your writing.

  10. OK, I just met you on twitter and came over and I'm like OMG, she's a Girl Scout mom just like me! So I think it was meant to be. Yes, your other creations do look better than your daisy cupcakes, but c'mon now, DAISY CUPCAKES are still CUTE! And great job and turning tweets into a post.

  11. First, I don't think the cupckes look bad. Secondly, holy awesome cakes batman! Those are incredible!

  12. I absolutely LOVE the ladybug cake! Not that the other ones aren't awesome too...but I'm very taken with the ladybug. Please send me one immediately. Thank you.

  13. Thanks! And no offense, but I think you're not seeing these Daisy cupcakes very clearly. They are truly awful. And, um, I just read on YOUR blog that you're vision impaired? I think these things may be related. I'm just sayin'.

    Welcome, new friend, and thanks for dropping by, and for pimping me on twitter. You rock.

  14. Aw, thanks! That was one of my faves, too. And then I got to see pics of the birthday girl smashing it to pieces and getting her hair all full of red buttercream. Good stuff.

  15. Thank you! And thanks for coming by. :) I found you and Jen via your writer's block post today, which somebody posted on twitter. I also have writer's block. Pretty much all the time. So we'll probably get along swimmingly. Plus, I bring cake! Virtual cake. But still.

  16. Thank you, dear, and thank you for the blog fodder. :-D

  17. Nobody wants to look at pictures of my cakes. Seriously. There are much, much nicer cakes on the internet.

  18. Your cakes are a part of who you are though.

  19. Thank you! :) They did love the cupcakes. There's no accounting for taste, I guess.

  20. Appreciate the recommendation. Will try it out.
