A Stepford Moment

I am not the most domestic of people, but I seem to have have had a Stepford weekend. First I baked and iced batches and batches of cupcakes for my niece’s birthday party, then I spend the rest of the weekend doing mad things like cleaning out all the cupboards in the kitchen and washing everything in them. Next thing you know I’ll be accosting random strangers and foisting homemade marmalade and tomato relish on them. Or, worse, actually enjoying doing the vacuuming. Save me, please!

Nevertheless, I am quite pleased with the somewhat rustic result with the cupcakes.

    Oh cool, I like how they’re all different. Lucky niece, hope she had a marvelous time at her party.

    Those are lovely cupcakes.

    I will confess that I too sometimes have Stepford days. But I can say for certain that so far I have never enjoyed vacuuming.

    Those cupcakes are gorgeous!

    I love to bake..but if I start vaccuuming voluntarily before the dust bunnies start forming unions, please shoot me.

    I may bake a blueberry pie and ignore the dust today. I love blueberry pie.

    Those look yummy! I get in the baking mode, sometimes and shower my hubby with baked goods. He’s not complaining.

    And your post totally reminded me of the baby shower cake photos I meant to post eons ago.

    Those cupcakes are adorable! And sometimes a Stepford moment is the only time I feel like doing housework. :P

    It would seem that we are awash with the zeitgeist. You’re making cupcakes, Rachel is making multiple cakes — even I am cleaning my house.

    It’s not a bad thing. I wish my wife had a few days like that.LOL!

    Sooo cute! I prefer the homey looking baked goods to the stamp out of a mold cookie cutter types. They always taste better too!

    Lyrica1, there’s no reason why a man couldn’t have a Stepford moment, too. Er…the cake baking kind, not the making a robotic wife kind, ok?

    Lynne, thanks. I used an old chocolate cake recipe of my mother’s which is as simple as a packet mix but far tastier.
