It’s Friday! Seems like a good time to finally post a few pictures from Friday night a couple weeks ago.
A group of us went over to Chelle and Jeremy’s to celebrate Scott’s birthday.
Chelle played bartender.
I took self-portraits.
I took three desserts over there.
A strawberry Jell-O pie with a pretzel crust.
But the dessert I made FOR Scott in honor of his birthday was a batch of Three Musketeers Cupcakes.
The frosting was made with melted Three Musketeers candy bars and it was delicious, but it was very dense and sorta pliable so it was a different animal from the buttercream I’m used to working with.
These cupcakes have a mini Three Musketeers candy bar baked inside so between that and the frosting, there was no doubt where this little confection got its flavor.
Chelle said Scott liked chocolate so I figured these cupcakes would be perfect. Turns out, he doesn’t like chocolate as much as some of us. Guess which treat he liked best? The strawberry Jell-O pie! Good thing I made that last-minute decision to add the pink pie to the mix.
Raise your hand if you’re excited about the three-day weekend. Me me me! ::Waving arm wildly:: I have a nice mix of chilling out, hanging with friends, to-do items, and exercise (Only 8 miles to run tomorrow!) to look forward to.
Hope you guys have a good long weekend, and I’ll “see” you on Tuesday.
