A jelly bean Homecoming

Chocolate and Coffee 
After traveling for the year I came home for my family Easter brunch.  It had been several months since I'd seen anyone, but apparently word spread about my little cupcake adventures.  So, naturally, my Aunt Jacque arrives with a beautiful batch of cupcakes that are not only carefully decorated but also include a little holiday flavor!  Each cupcake is adorned with jelly beans, the classic Easter-time treat, and the jelly bean flavor actually accents the cupcake flavor!  Chocolate become a mocha with coffee jelly beans.  You get the picture.  After many cupcake adventures, it's sure nice to come home to a special delight that connects family with my year of travels.
Happy Easter!

Why I died and went to t-shirt heaven

best t-shirt design ever
The Delta Gamma's at New Mexico State University host their annual Dessert with DGs event each March.  This year and last year's t-shirts had cupcakes on them, so I begged for an extra shirt.  This may be my favorite shirt because it combines my two FAVORITE things.

Southern Sweets Part II: For the Fruits

The line to get cupcakes
Memphis, TN
Shop: Muddy's Bake Shop
Treat: Chocolate Chimp (chocolate cupcake with banana icing) 
Tomboy (chocolate cupcake with peanut butter icing)
Review: These two cupcakes are some of the more unique flavors I have seen.  Overall, Muddy's has a spectacular variety and something to fix every craving, from fruity to minty.  Also sampled at Muddy's (by our group) was the Pucker Up (sweet and tart lemon layer cake with lemon icing) and Orange Cream.  Talk about a fruity experience!

Delta Gamma selections for the day
As you can see by the line, Muddy's is quite the popular spot in Memphis.  See review for Muddy's, below, for my cupcake story in Memphis.  
During my visit with the Delta Gamma's they hosted a retreat for the newest members.  Of course, I recommended they have treats...  It was a great success and they not only interacted with upperclassmen in Delta Gamma but they also created a new DG "stroll"!
