I made cupcakes using the (<a href="http://www.recipezaar.com/139518">Magnolia Bakery Vanilla Birthday Cake Recipe</a>) for my friend Matt, who was back in town (he goes to university in Toronto, and lives in residence there, so I don't see him as often as i'd like). Cry
And they went over REALLY well.  The whole recipe made about 30 cupcakes, so I gave 9 to my boyfriend and his family, 4 to my friend Matt, 10 to be spread out between my young cousins and my brothers and one left over, 5 for me and my parents, and 2 for friends at work.  My boyfriend says he has an addiction to the buns that I make (he's a Brit, with the yummy accent and everything.Wink), and he refuses to get treatment. Tongue  So much for my 12 step program! Wink  And a word about the plain ones, when were were going camping, we went to the Stouffville Wal-Mart to pick up some supplies, and he had a 5 minute rant about how you couldn't find plain buns (cupcakes/muffins) in this country, and how happy he was that I made them.  It was hilarious at the time.  Still is!

cupcakes!

I also made sugar cookies using a recipe I found at All Recipes (<a href="http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Sugar-Cookies-with-Buttercream-Frosting/Detail.aspx">Sugar Cookies</a> ), and icing using another recipe from All Recipes (<a href="http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Sugar-Cookie-Icing/Detail.aspx">Icing Recipe</a> ).  Sorry I don't have pictures, but they were really good too! Cheesy  They got rave reviews from everybody who tried them, but I would recommend that you cut the recipe in half for the icing.  It makes ALOT.  I still have enough left over for another 30 or so cupcakes!

And to end, a terrible picture of me with my boyfriend at my 20th birthday, a little over a month before we started dating!

thanks!  It was my first time trying the recipe and I was really hoping it would go well!  And he's lovely.  He made me believe in love again. Smiley  As cliche as that sounds  I went through a really bad breakup that turned me off guys for about 2 years before he asked me out through a friend (we work together).
