Cupcakes, Cupcakes, Cupcakes (And I'm Feeling Thankful)

It's official!

My sister-in-law and I are making a cupcake cake of around 100 cupcakes for my brother-in-law's wedding. Leaving on a Wednesday night and hoping for the best. :) Trying to figure out that, if we start baking the cupcakes on Thursday, when should we frost them for the wedding?! All the logistics, but I'm excited because I'm a planner.

I was thinking about banana cupcakes with honey-cinnamon frosting because my brother-in-law loves to dress like a banana.

But I might get the kabosh on that one. :) If you were making wedding cupcakes, what cupcakes would you make?

And I haven't done Thankful Thursday in awhile so...

Thankful Thursday at Truth 4 the Journey

If you'd like to post what you're thankful about, I know that Sonya

1) I am thankful that each day is a new day. Sometimes, I struggle and sometimes I don't. Some days I glory in God and some days I feel that I'm not doing so hot in the Lord's book. But I'm thankful that He lifts me up each day and that He loves me.

2) That I have a very supportive and funny family. My mom called me last night because she was looking at purses and thinking of me. I'm not very girly and don't have a lot of purses (especially for occasions like weddings) but she was thinking of me because of the upcoming wedding.

3) That we have lots of airline miles!! Silly, maybe. But with this wedding, we could have either spent over $400 on airfare OR what we are actually spending...which is $10!!! We've purchased two airline tickets to Ohio for $10. Heck. Yes. It's really helpful because now we can spend that money on flour, butter, eggs, and cupcake liners. :-D

4) I am thankful for my husband. He really took care of me when I was feeling sick. I actually couldn't get out of bed and he helped me through it all with everything. I really appreciated that.

5) For my church. Though we haven't been there in a month due to holidays and illnesses, people at church have been asking how we are and saying that they miss us. It really means a lot to me and shows me how the hands and feet of Christ really work.

So what are you thankful for?!


  1. I'm thankful for my husband and kids....

    As for cupcakes, I don't know, maybe some sort of white raspberry; that's the first thing that came to my mind for a wedding.:) 'Like a white cupcake or even a chocolate cupcake with raspberry filling in the middle and some sort of white or cream cheese frosting on top, with a hint of raspberry mixed into that....then decorated wedding wise.:) Wow, now I'm hungry. Stopping by from SITS.:)

  2. Thanks for stopping by my blog and I am now following you. I love your list. I needed to hear #1. Thanks for sharing. Good luck with the cupcakes!!

  3. $10.00 for airline tickets, now that is really something to be thankful for! WOW what a savings!

    For your cupcakes, ask them what their two favorites are along with the fillings and give them exactly what they love. Since more than likely there will be left overs, they can boxed up and set home with the couple!

  4. Great list. Especially about each day being a new day. Praise God! I have to remind myself over and over how merciful and loving He is that we can only live one day at a time - that He gives us each day... one at a time.

  5. Great list. I didn't mention my church family this week... but I'm very thankful for them. I love fellowship.

  6. I hope you have a great time at the wedding, it sounds like it will be no matter what!
    I am Thankful we have God who loves us no matter what, and gives us every new morning to ask Him to help us again!
    Great list...loved the Banana boy!

  7. OK....ten bucks for air fare beats mine hands down. lol How exciting to be doing the cupcake cake. I'm good with banana, but I guess that depends on what the bride wants. :) Blessings, SusanD

  8. Great list. :) I should do this often...

  9. Those cupcakes sound yummy! I would love to have the recipe.

    Just stopping by from SITS to say hello. Have a great weekend!
