We don’t often get asked to make cupcakes and it’s not our specialty given how many cupcake specialists there are out there, but Mark delivered a dozen cupcakes with chocolate and lavender frosting yesterday. There’s something old fashioned about icing the cupcake frosting with a knife instead of piping it with a pastry bag. I like the way it looks.
We’re trying to salvage our Saturday by rethinking our day after our morning plans got sabotaged by a stupid car seat situation. We were all set to drive out to Montclair, NJ to meet up with some twitter/blog friends (Little Brown Pen, Fog & Thistle, Cicada Studio, Design Evolution and Words at Play) when car seat installation problems got in the way. Can you believe that 2 hours later, Mark is still in the car trying to install the damn thing? So instead of having a nice leisurely brunch with the ladies, we’re fighting with the carseat and a couple of rowdy kids. Serious, serious bummer, man.
