Red Velvet VooDoo Cupcakes

I got my Voodoo Cupcakes video up! NO THANKS to YouTube!!! I had to export the video and then upload the thing after I spent FOREVER trying to figure out why I wasn't able to get the video onto my YouTube channel! UGH!!!
But-I finally prevailed! I hope you like it! :)

After a long battle with YouTube, I've finally gotten my 'VooDoo Cupcakes' video tutorial uploading! It'll take a few hours to process, but I WILL have it up today...unless I'm sabotaged by You Tube yet again...but you wouldn't know about it then cuz I would have thrown the computer...so no worries! :)

In the meantime, I want to share something that's REALLY bothering me today...

"Double, double toil and trouble
Fire burn, and cauldron bubble."

HOLA!! :)
Here are some pics of my VooDoo cupcakes!
These are jumbo size cupcakes.
It's a red velvet cake with a combo of cream cheese frosting and a whipped white frosting.
The skulls are made from chewing gum that I shaped.

I've started making my cupcakes for friends/family/friends of friends and family, so I'm going to have a second blog showing just my cupcakes with info on them/pricing(cupcakes are my hobby-not my business, so my prices are mostly made up of product cost :). You can check it out any time HERE: 'Cupcakes By Penny'. I'll have a permanent link up at the top right of my blog. They don't ship due to the fragile nature of cupcakes :(, BUT I love every single one of you reading this right now, and please send me an e-mail if you'll be in the Houston area-I'd love to make you some!
Hugs, Starlets! YAY! :)

Wish you would step back from that ledge, my friend!!

Breaking Dawn is one step closer to having a director! Summit Entertainment is currently trying to get a REAL/reputable/no suckage director on board so they can try not to look like my younger cousin filmed the movies/wrote the HORRIBLE scripts. 'Breaking Dawn' is the next Twilight movie to be filmed .

Dreamgirls director Bill Condon is reportedly "in negotiations" with Summit Entertainment to direct the upcoming Twilight flick, which the studio has announced they will split into two parts.

Don't do it, BILL!! Some things you can never take back!
AND- FYI, Summit, a burnt cupcake wrapped in expensive chocolate is STILL a burnt cupcake.

Easter Cupcakes

I'm gonna have to work over Easter, but you KNOW I couldn't let the Pastel-Sugar-Day of Rejoicing go by without some cupcakes!! :)
These are a yellow cake with a whipped, vanilla buttercream icing.
The Bunny(King Solomon) is gum paste...
...as are the flowers/curly stems.

Here's the video tutorial on how I made these!

Happy Easter, Lovelies!
