Happy Hump Day readers!
Can I confess something to you all? I had no idea what "hump day" meant until recently. Lol, can you imagine what I thought it was before I understood it was the "hump" of the week?
Anyhoot, my Aunt brought us fresh ripe strawberries from SoCal and I had 2 recipes in my Pinterest board just waiting for them! I'm happy to share these 2 amazing recipes from Eat, Live, Run and Baking Bites.
The Strawberry frosting was the shining star of this recipe, and it made enough to ice 24 cupcakes, 24 mini cupcakes AND approximately 3 cups worth to save for a rainy day (AKA, an excess of frosting). I have to be honest and say I rarely ever sift anything (its possible I don't have the technique down but it takes me HOURS to sift) so maybe I got powdered sugar happy and it made extra? Anyhoot, it was DELICIOUS so I didn't mind having extra.
The Strawberry cake was yummy too but for some, it might have been a little too much Strawberry on Strawberry action.
So two days later, I opted to try them with a chocolate cupcake recipe. When I finished the chocolate cupcakes, I only had time to snap a picture at dawn (bright and early before my 9-5) so I apologize for the yellowish tint.
Overall, I heard the combination of the recipes (Fresh Strawberry Frosting and Chocolate Cupcake) was a true winner but I really loved both of these recipes and you can't go wrong with either! Check out the blogs for the full recipes:

(FYI, I only made the cupcake)

My Grandma is set to come home either tomorrow or Thurs so all is well! But because of a potential bacteria, we had to suit up in order to visit her. It sounds more intense than it was. I also got a huge kick out of saying "Suit Up!" a la Barney Stinson (HIMYM fans anyone!?)
Thanks again for all the prayers and good thoughts! Have a great Wednesday!
