Cupcake Thursday??

Well, gosh, I wish I had a good cupcake recipe to go along with my card today. I'm sure I do....somewhere....but I already planned this week's recipe because I just made it yesterday!!

First, the card.......



This is one of the new images just released this past Sunday, Sweet Little Thing. I think this is one of my favorites. I say that a lot, don't I? Well, I'm all about cupcakes.....anything sweet, actually. I think I mentioned before that I could LIVE on dessert alone!! I stamped the image onto my brand new Canson drawing paper that I picked up at Michael's. Crissy, Janette & Kimmie all went to a Copic Certification class recently, & they returned RAVING about this paper. I happened upon it at Michael's & used my coupon to buy it. I do really like it, the colors blend so well. So yes.....I used my Copics on this card :) I think I'm getting which method works best for me to get the blending down. The papers are SU's Gable Green (which I had never ever used before....I still had all 3 sheets from my starter pack, lol) & DCWV's Sweet pad. The swirl in the corner is part of the paper, so I couldn't cover it up! But it looked lonesome when I was done with the card, so I just punched some vellum flowers & added a couple of silver thingies to the centers. The cupcake liner is paper pieced with another piece of the Sweet paper.....only because I didn't like how I colored it. Thank goodness for whomever invented piecing! The cupcake frosting has Angel Wings Shimmerz on it, because it was a bit too bright. I wanted it to match the paper, & the Shimmerz really toned it down, & made it sparkly at the same time :)



Here's a closeup.....I hope you can see the shimmery frosting....yum!! And speaking of yum......

Today's recipe is a dessert that I'm sure many of you have not only heard of, but made yourselves. Someone brought it to work one day many years ago & I was hooked!!!


CHOCOLATE ECLAIR TORTE

Line 9"x13" pan with graham crackers.
Mix 2 three oz boxes of instant French Vanilla pudding & 2 1/2 cups milk. Fold in 8 oz Cool Whip. Put layer of graham crackers on top.
Refrigerate overnight.
Frost with chocolate frosting.


Now, could that BE any easier????? Oh...it is soooooooo good. If you're having a chocolate craving....trust me.....this is the dessert for you!! I've included a picture, if only the picture was scratch 'n sniff!! LOL!!




As always, thanks for visiting my little blog. Tomorrow is the day we found out if hubby needs another surgery or not. I have mentioned I'm moving out if he's going to be home another 8 weeks, haven't I?????
