Cupcake Skirmish

You may be familiar with a cable TV show titled "Cupcake Wars".  If not, the premise is that cupcake bakers are eliminated in a series of cupcake baking competitions with the final competition being a 1000 cupcake display created in 2 hours.

So I wasn't in a cupcake war, I was in a cupcake skirmish (a skirmish being a small battle as opposed to an all-out war) today.  With a little help from my BFF sidekick Margie (who gets roped into MANY of my frosted insanity moments), I knocked out and delivered a total of 360 cupcakes for 2 separate events.  Took me WAAAAY longer than 2 hours, but we had a lot of fun (and yummy!) cupcakes to show for it. (and a HUGE mess in the kitchen!)
