To All the Mothers

I hope you have an absolutely wonderful day! Today is a day for us to say thank you for all you do.  You are incredible.  

 
And of course a special thank you to my Mom who I'll get to see today!  There's lots of chocolate here for you, Mom (she is the ultimate chocaholic!). 

We're having the family over to our house for the first time since we officially moved in.  Can't wait to see everyone (doggies included). Lets hope the sun decides to show it's happy face.


 
And to all the doggie mommas too (as I am), this is for you too!  I'm sure Jax has got big plans for Mother's Day... Just kidding! But he gets to see his doggie family today at our Mother's Day get together - he just doesn't know it yet.  He kind of already had his celebration when I let him lick a bit of frosting for the cupcakes last night (don't worry it was after I finished frosting the chocolate, gluten-free, vegan cupcakes).  My husband and I already ate 3 last night.  Good thing I've got a whole chocolate-chocolate cake in the fridge as well!  I cheated a little bit on the cupcakes because I wanted them to be gluten-free and vegan.  Some of the family eats gluten-free and well the mix just makes it so easy.  I used egg replacer instead of an egg, making them vegan as well.  And you know what's so great about vegan batter - you can eat as much raw batter as you want!  I whipped up that frosting from scratch though.

 
Here are the cupcakes waiting in the refrigerator this morning...
  
 
Have a wonderful Sunday everyone and again Happy Mother's Day to all of you amazing moms!

What are you grateful for today?

  2. I'm a kitty mom (which is really just as important, right?) and my boyfriend was a sweetheart and got me one of those "Happy Mother's day, from the cat" cards. It really made my day bright! I hope you enjoyed time with your mom and everyone enjoyed the cake!

  3. You have been posting some amazing looking cupcakes lately. I have not made cupcakes in forever!

    I am grateful for having a great friendship with my mom. I don't see her very often but I still feel that she knows me better than most people.
