Sugar Coated Coma and Wedding Cupcakes!

15 May

This post may seem a little off,


Because it’s not often we talk about 24 boxes of powdered sugar.

Or the fact that I have enough vegetable oil to drive to china..

Can you drive to China?


Oh and there is butter…

Probably enough butter to make you as big as China.

Or about the same amount of butter Mrs. DeanΒ adds to her mashed potatoes…

Either way, Big as China.

Which is how I feel after this weekend. No, I didn’t just call it quits and say ‘Forget This’ when it comes to living healthy and add a stick of butter to my morning smoothie…

(Would that even taste good? I dunno, ask Mrs. Dean)

I actually had a purpose to this madness..

A purpose of about 200 cupcakes AND a wedding cake!

And for two days every time I opened my fridge I found this…


THEN, only to shut the fridge, and have the rest of THIS bad boy screaming ‘Eat Me Now you Sissy La La!’

No thank you, this carrot taste delicious!

Baby Boo was probably the hardest to contain self control. Every time I turned around , she tried to sneak a snack in here and there..

Like mama’ like daughta’

And…Actually to be truthful, I wasn’t the least bit tempted to eat every single cupcake..I was too sick from testing batters and frostings, that the thought of sugar made me want to..

Eat a carrot..

And I technically wasn’t allowed to since the cupcakes weren’t all for me..:)


They were how ever for some really great friends of ours who got married this weekend! I was SO nervous to bake for a wedding..Not something I had ever done!

But I think everything turned out pretty good..

It was one of the most beautiful weddings I had ever seen. Every single touch was handmade and done by the family, or someone that the family was close with.

It made everything very special and very personal.

Even the hubby and I(besides making the cake) got to be apart of the wedding..

Baby Boo’s dress was AlMoSt as poofy as the brides…


But she most definitely won the Biggest Flower on the Head prize.

We even got to sit at the ‘Big Kids’ Table since we were apart of the wedding party…

And to think he is 5 years older than me πŸ™‚


It was a beautiful day despite the 4 hours of sleep and Frosting tid bits strewed about my bangs.

I am much more relaxed knowing I was able to accomplish such a great task!

As for now I am starting a two week detox tomorrow. I’ll give the details more later, but what I can tell you is that Chocolate is NOT included…

I think I just shed a tear..

Also coming up is a no fail no boredom treadmill routine and some great Mama and Baby Workouts, along with a bunch of other random goodies πŸ™‚

Have a great rest of your weekend my little cupca…

Wait..I am definitely not going to finish that word..

Bleh! Too soon…

  17. Tine May 16, 2011 at 2:38 pm #

    Lovely cupcakes!
    Cute picture of Baby Boo looking from behind the cakes :)!

  18. Shanna, like Banana May 16, 2011 at 3:57 pm #

    Holy moly girl you are talented! What a gorgeous display! Were you professionally trained? Is this a side job? Incredible!

    Love the color of the dress and you and your hubby and darling girl look smashing!

    • ThE DiVa DiSh May 18, 2011 at 3:27 am #

      No not professionally trained, just a hobby πŸ™‚
      And Thanks for the compliments on my dress…it was all the brides choice!

  19. Laura @ Sprint 2 the Table May 16, 2011 at 4:25 pm #

    I kept reading your tweets and wondering exactly what you were up to. πŸ™‚ They look gorgeous!!! That cake is stunning too.

    I want to see a full shot of your dress – it looks so cool! Enjoy your carrots. πŸ™‚

    • ThE DiVa DiSh May 18, 2011 at 3:28 am #

      IT was a fun dress to wear, and the color was so pretty.. πŸ™‚
      And I will enjoy them very much!

  20. Ashley May 16, 2011 at 7:39 pm #

    Oh, I’m drooling too! You are so talented and I am loving your pictures – you and hubby look awesome in pastels πŸ™‚

  21. Kristen @ The Red Velvet Life May 16, 2011 at 10:21 pm #

    Oh my! Ari, the cake and cupcakes are absolutely stunning! Fabulous! Fantastique! I’m so impressed and your newlywed friends must have been over the moon excited that they could tell people that YOU put all of that together — you should be so proud!

    Also, I know the feeling over being “sweeted out”…to where the thought of a cupcake makes your tummy ache because you’ve been baking so much! Although, I don’t believe I’ve ever baked quite that much. πŸ™‚

    And Baby Boo is TOO CUTE…the way she’s taking a peak at those cupcakes. πŸ™‚ Hope you and Baby Boo have a lovely, detoxifying start to the week! πŸ™‚ xoxo

    • ThE DiVa DiSh May 18, 2011 at 3:29 am #

      Isn’t it funny how being around so much sweets can do that to you?? After a while it is just overwhelming and I want to just drink water haha no more sugar! πŸ™‚

      Hopefully I can keep it up with the detox!

  22. pawsitivelife May 17, 2011 at 12:27 am #

    Wow, you are amazing!!! Thats some talent. baby boo is so so so so cute. I don’t know why you think you need to detox, a sugar coma is a wonderful thing…once in a while

  23. czechvegan May 17, 2011 at 6:51 am #

    Those are the prettiest cupcakes and wedding cake I have ever seen!!! And you and your family look soooo pretty at the wedding, beautiful!:)

  24. thelaststandmixer May 21, 2011 at 12:51 am #

    My daughter has the same pink, puffy “prom” dress from Target. She wore hers on her first birthday. I give you credit for making all those cupcakes. Buying all those boxes of sugar is hard enough!
