I’m Loving It: Shari’s Berries Truffles and Gift sets

I was recently sent some delicious chocolate to review. I know, I have the best job ever! I received a box of Mother’s day truffles. You know I love a good truffles. They were not only pretty, but they tasted amazing. The dark chocolate ones were my favorite. Each truffle was filled with a smooth, creamy center. Seriously, you need to get some of these ordered for yourself. Or a perfect gift for Mother’s day! There are many other ideas of gifts to send too (Ghirardelli chocolate basket anyone???). At least if hubby and the kids forget to buy dessert we have some of these left to enjoy!

Today I am baking 240 cupcakes for a wedding. I saw this photo on Pinterest this week and thought, OMG that’s me! Well, okay, I’m not going to be walking around at their wedding, but I totally feel like the “cupcake lady” right now. This photo is from Michael Buble’s wedding. Awesome right! Quite a workout for this woman too, think about it. Trying to walk with all those cupcakes. You thought the bride was nervous about tripping in her dress….

  1. OMG that cupcake dress is so ridiculous. In a fabulous way! Also, I must have those cinnamon buns, like, now.

    I hope your daughter is OK!

  2. Woah. She was WALKING AROUND IN THAT? I thought when I first saw it that she was just standing and posing. Walking? Crazy!

  3. I saw that cupcake lady pic on Pinterest and thought it was hilarious! Happy Baking!

  4. I think the restraint to resist the cupcakes that lady is wearing would be the hardest 🙂
