Cupcake review, Snow, Snowflake Stars

Cupcake reviews:
The mini cupcakes were okay but the Caramel Latte was more frosting than cupcake. Not bad after I picked off the coffee beans and they left their flavor behind, just way too much frosting. Gingerbread cupcake was pretty good, the little man had softened up by the time I ate it on Sunday. Wasn't terribly impressed by the PB&J mini. Peter's Mint Chocolate was minty and I loved the Ande's but the ganache was just a little too much for me. Luckily Brandon loves frosting. Just a little too rich for me. Not a bad experience overall and worth trying out others from their repertoire.

When Brandon and I were going out to the cars this morning so I could get the Outback's brakes done at Royal Moore before he went to work it was little ice pelts coming down. Then it switched over to snow:

I was able to get one of the Snowflake Stars out into the beginning snow for a photo. I finished the second one this afternoon but it was already melted by that time. Snowflake Stars:

I then spent a couple of hours plying up the yak-merino. It's a 50-50 blend and deliciously soft. It's still resting on the bobbin before I give it a soak. Not sure if it will need any whacking but don't think it will:

Tomorrow is spinning with the ladies at Panera and then knitting with the ladies at Haggen's. It's a fiberlicious day. I'm trying to wrap up January's theme of ornaments. I just have one mini sweater to do, I think another hat and mitten set and I want to do a couple balls. I have until Saturday night to meet that goal.


  1. Snowflakes in snow! Looks like you were up earlier than I was. Great snowflakes, by the way.

  2. 7:30 am. Ugh! But I have new brakes and that's a good thing.


  3. The yak-merino is so soft! You did a great job. The finished yarn is yummy.
