Sweet Sunday

Happy Sweet Sunday!
I love to bake, but I never would because I didn't want to eat 12 cupcakes {and if they were in the house, I would} What I've finally decided to do is bake and give!  So pretty much every weekend I bake something, eat one, and give the rest away.  I give them to my parents, to my friends, to my mom's co-workers, I send them to work with Ryan and next I'm going to figure out how to ship some to my friends and family in other states!
 In honor of our 12 year wedding anniversary today, I wanted to bake something Ryan would like......
Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cream Cheese Frosting! 
I made two batches, the remaining 21 will go with Ryan to work tomorrow.  I wanted to dress up the few that we will be keeping to enjoy.  I used the WPlus9 Cupcake Wrapper and Accessories dies to create a custom wrap.  I stamped them with this adorable carrot from the MFT Somebunny stamp set and colored them with Copic Markers.  I die cut the cute bow from Green Acres cardstock to match  my carrot tops.

I can't wait to eat mine tonight!.
I got the recipe from a book I checked out of the library called, Cupcakes by Shelly Kaldunski.  I'll see you tomorrow for the WPlus9 June 2015 Release!

Cardstock: WP9 White, Green Acres
Stamps: MFT Somebunny
Ink: Memento Black
Dies: WP9 Cupcake Wrapper and Accessories
Other: Copics


  1. First off, happy anniversary! These cupcakes look so fabulous and i love how you made them extra special.

  2. You are a smart cookie, giving most of your goodies away before you can eat them! (I would have the exact same problem.......they call to me from the kitchen!) These are darling and look delish! Happy Anniversary, Kara!

  3. Happy Anniversary!! :)
    And YUM!!!
    I love carrot cake but won't make it because I'm one of the only ones in the house that will eat it so that means I would eat the whole thing...
    so I'm gonna start doing what you do...cuppies!!
    And then sending extras with Patrick to work...
    genius!!! :)

  4. And I meant to say those little wrappers are beyond precious!! :)

  5. They sound yummy and they look cute!!

  6. Wishing you a belated but happy anniversary! Hope your day was extra special. Your cupcakes look so yummy and adorable in their decorated wrappers. I agree about baking--love to do it but don't! Cupcakes and muffins are great ways to share. Last week I made blueberry muffins with blueberries we had picked last summer and frozen. I saved two and sent the rest off with the grandchildren!

  7. So sweet! I saw your pics of these cupcakes on Instagram, but had no idea it was in honor of your special day. Happy Anniversary Kara! I hope you & Ryan had a awesome day celebrating. Paula aka Aluapi5

  8. Happy Anniversary. Those cupcakes are so perfectly frosted, decorated and photographed. I think you have a future as a food stylist. I also like to bake, but cannot eat everything I make or I would be big as a house.

  9. I just had to take a peek at this post with the cupcake liners.....oh my gosh I love them! I'm the same way can't have it in the house. Do you love the liners,I am thinking of getting them?
