Show and Tell Friday!

Pin It Now!

I'm so sorry for the delay in getting Show and Tell Friday up this week!  Blogger has been having issues since yesterday and I wasn't able to get on at all! 

Now that's it's up I didn't have the photos that I had planned on sharing so I'm resharing cupcakes that I made a long time ago!  I guess that's the good thing about blogging so long (since 2005)...I have so many old photos that I can repost in emergencies like this!

Seeing these cupcakes makes me want to make some more...I love making them but it's so hard to resist eating them and since I'm finally getting down to my last 20 lbs to lose I should not even tempt myself with them!  I LOVE cupcakes with REAL homemade buttercream frosting!  Really...forget the cupcakes...I could just eat the frosting off the top! haha!

If you are joining in on Show and Tell Friday, please remember that your Show and Tell needs to be something from your home or garden. Please read the Show and Tell Guidelines for step-by-step instructions on how to participate. If you would like to join in, please enter your name and leave your exact Show and Tell blog post link, not just your blog link and as a common courtesy link back to my blog. If your link has been removed, please re-read over the guidelines before re-posting, or e-mail me with any questions.

Thank to all of you that join in every week!

Everyone's having blogger problems! My last post has gone missing, just gone and a few others bloggers have had theirs disappear also. It's not even in the edit posts area:(

Your cupcakes are beautiful! Love the flowers on top. You did a great job on these! Thanks for having us!

Elsie said...

Cindy I noticed that Blogger was having trouble. At first I thought
it was me since I didn't have a
blog. I finally figured out it was them. Your cupcakes are still beautiful. I could eat every one of them. Good luck on loosing the last 20.

Katherines Corner said...

Thanks for sharing!


Audrey Pettit said...

So sorry about all the Blogger hassle these past few days. What a drag, huh? Thanks for taking the extra time to keep Show & Tell Friday up and running. And wow on your gorgeous cupcakes. Ever since the show Cupcake Wars came out, I've been dreaming of cupcakes.......but I just cannot get mine to turn out like your. What we need is a cupcake bakery......or a visit from you! ;)

Handy Man, Crafty Woman said...

thanks for hosting. the blogger snafu has been driving me NUTS! glad it's back!

Lydia said...

Those cupcakes... there goes my diet!

I think we all woke up to Friday the 13th feeling rather "forked" by Blogger. Last post disappeared for 24 hours- but it is back now.

and as always, thank you for hosting!

Sarah said...

Seeing those cupcakes makes me want to bake some. These are gorgeous - almost too pretty to eat, Cindy.
Glad you were able to get on. I think Blogger had all of us feeling powerless. LOL
Thanks for hosting. ~ sarah

Carolyn said...

Hi Cindy,
Those cupcakes would be hard to resist!
Thank you for hosting,

Brambleberry Cottage said...

Boy, Blogger sure threw us for a loop, didn't they? I was beginning to think I was going to have to reinvent my last post. But, it came back. YAY!

Love the cupcakes, Cindy! I remember seeing them in the original post, but they are so lovely, I don't mind seeing them again. ;)

M. Estes Zywar said...

Hi Cindy!
I had lots of trouble with Blogger today as well. Glad its up and running again! :O)
OH MY...those cupcakes make me drool!!!!!!!!!
Just wanted to say hi and tell you I do so enjoy the Friday postings!!! So many lovely ideas!!

mercedes scott said...

Those cupcakes are to die for! No matter how hard I try, mine never seem to look quite as beautiful; must be a special talent I don't possess! Happy Friday :)

Ami w/AliLilly said...

OH!! Those cupcakes are gorgeous!!! Thanks for hosting! :)

Vicki said...

Cindy, thank you for keeping us entertained with your site, knowing your past weeks have been difficult. You can show old photos any time! Some of us are newer here; I love everything you post (such pretty things to look at). You know, Nigella Lawson loves cupcakes...I enjoy watching her cooking shows on TV...and, without a whole lot of fuss, she paints her cupcakes with that forgiving royal icing, presses on a sugar violet and, voila, a work of art, just like yours. Fun; I forget to eat cupcakes; now I'm inspired!

Gorgeous cupcakes... thank you for hostessing!

And how you used the cupcake tree.

Those cupcakes are a work of art! Too pretty to eat but very tempting! Just call them DietKillers. Nancy H

Beverly said...

Cindy, they look so pretty - and so yummy. But, I guess I should do like you, and just admire their beauty.

I hope you will join us for Pink Saturday's 3rd Birthday on May 28.
