As I mentioned the other day, I stubbed my toe. It still hurts. However, my sister has suffered worse toe troubles this week. I'm still not exactly sure what they did to her but she had toe surgery this week on both her feet. (It had something to do with her toes being slanted or crooked or something. I can't pay attention when people start talking about blood and IVs and incisions.) She has to wear two walking casts for a couple weeks. So I guess I can't really complain about my stubbed toe anymore.
Since I was working from home today, I decided to multi-task and bake her some cupcakes. I also made her this giant foot card. B came up with the slogan. I can't take credit for that. He is a genius. PS-The foot says 'love' because L-Fab actually has that tattooed on her foot.So we went to visit her to lift her spirits and take her the cupcakes. I made two kinds...s'more cupcakes and Reese's cup cupcakes. I used a box chocolate cake mix for the base. For the s'mores ones I swirled some marshmallow fluff stuff in to the batter and then stuck a clump of it in the cupcake once I poured the batter in to the cupcake tin. I put graham crackers in the batter for some of them. I made a marshmallow frosting out of butter, powdered sugar, vanilla and marshmallow fluff. I just was not a big fan of it. Next time I think I'd just go for a vanilla frosting with graham crackers in it and maybe a melted marshmallow somewhere on the cupcake. I did however, think they looked cute. Look at the little Hershey bar.
I liked the Reese's cup ones better. For that I just put pieces of Reese's cups in to the batter. Then I made a peanut butter frosting with peanut butter, butter, powdered sugar and a little milk. Not as cute but pretty tasty.
So I hope L-Fab likes my cupcakes and foot card.
Have you ever had toe surgery?
