A picture post

Its not really fair for me to mention the hamburger cupcake project without posting some pics, so here you go:

The hamburger is chocolate cupcake, the bun is white cupcake, and the ketchup and mustard are dyed frosting. The lettuce is coconut dyed green, you can see it better in this picture:

Andrew brushed the top with olive oil and sprinkled some sesame seeds to give it a bun-like appearance. I'm pretty sure he found inspiration for this online, where there is an endless supply of odd cake ideas. He's going to put on some darn good birthday parties for baby A+A someday.

But for now we put on parties for other folks, and yesterday's cupcakes were for my Mother-in-law, who LOVED them:

We had our Mother's Day weekend picnic in the best of Seattle weather, in the sunshine looking at Lake Washington:

Today isn't quite so sunny, which is just fine by me. I have some gardening to do, dahlias to get planted, so I'd better hop to.
