A high-heel loving gal and her trusty sidekick…

it's because i love her.

It's that time of year again...
Making cupcakes for Pia's birthday (which is on Monday, but we are celebrating tomorrow)

I'm not sure how (or why, really) we got started on this tradition.
Because you know how much I hate baking.
But then Pia asks for those ridiculously good, but labor-intensive Black Hole Cupcakes.
And then I decide I want a 2nd flavor.

And then the 2-day baking extravaganza takes place.

Seriously, it's ridiculous how much work goes into this:

But it's so so worth it.
(And, for the record, the left cakes are Vanilla Bean with purple vanilla buttercream.
They are also the 2nd recipe of vanilla 'cakes I made, when I decided batch #1 wasn't nearly up to my high standards.)

It is weird, but she offered colors and that sounded fun. Thanks for baking me birthday cupcakes. You know how much I love that you do something that you kind of hate for me. You're the BEST little sister in the whole world.
