The last two weeks - I have been baking like a mad woman. I'm looking forward to a reprieve for a couple of weeks!
First, I put in my two weeks at Ontario and wanted to make sure that I tried to give everyone a cupcake before I left. I made two batches of cupcakes - the orange frosting is a chocolate cupcake with caramel filling and buttercream frosting and the brown frosting is a chocolate cupcake with a peanut butter cup as the base and has peanut butter frosting. (I also made my famous chocolate chip cookies which are not pictured). The cupcakes were really fun to make and it seemed like people enjoyed them!
I also made some cute "jungle" themed cupcakes - mini and regular ones. I made a larger cupcake for the birthday girl and frosted it with buttercream and used fondant accents. In transport, the larger cupcake got a little lop-sided, but I think it will survive. (I forgot to take pictures of the mini cupcakes).
Finally - I was tasked with a surprise 50th birthday party order - so here are some girly (but includes black) cupcakes... :) These were chocolate chip cupcakes with dark chocolate ganache filling.
Anyway, my official last day at Ontario was Wednesday, July 27th. It was very sad to leave all my friends - but I am headed to a great opportunity at the County of Orange! Day 1 on Friday at the County was really awesome and I am looking forward to doing more policy analysis work!
Take care and happy baking,
