Spring Fling

It has been an action packed weekend full of cupcakes, Westies and sugar cookies! Sean and I took Dino and Frankie to the Spring Fling Westie event at Vasona Park. The event is hosted by The San Francisco Westie Club and they feature Westies that have been rescued and adopted. Our boys had a wonderful time even though they had to wear their leash that day. Darn rules :)

I recently met a fellow cupcake lover named Mara on Yelp. Coincidently she too has a lovely Westie named Portia. I had to post a photo of her below as she's too cute! We were finally able to schedule some creative deco time and introduce our little ones. While our little rascals played, we decorated spring themed sugar cookies. I flavored the royal icing with a touch of almond oil. The icing turned out perfectly smooth and glossy. I'm really happy with the end result.

Due to numerous cupcakes orders this week, I have been unable to dedicate any time to Hair Petals. I'm hoping this week will allow some creative time as I picked up some FABULOUS new blooms in my favorite color = purple!
