Decorating cupcakes and blog help needed

I am not an expert cake decorator, but I sure
had fun using my Wilton dessert decorator a few
days ago.

Like I said, not an expert at all, but I sure have fun trying. I made red velvet cupcakes with Dean Jacob's brand cupcake mix. {from Home Goods} and they are sooooo good!
I think the frosting was a little soft to decorate them this way, but oh well.
don't they look so pretty?

I highly recommend this brand of mix. I also scooped up
the last two boxes of the white chocolate cupcake mixes
with raspberry frosting in the same brand.
I have had them before and they are my favorite.

Happy Thursday everyone...LOOK can you see it?? The weekend is coming!! :)
Are any of you having these blog spacing problems? When I type this up in compose mode my spacing is fine,
but when I go to preview it and actually post it, some
are double spaced and it is driving me crazy!
Any help out there?? pretty please...:)

Hi Sandi,

Those cupcakes look scrumptions.

I too have been having Blogger problems this week with spacing just as you've discribed. I first had the problem on Monday when I posted and again when I posted today. Very frustrating but I'm glad to know it's not just me experiencing this problem. Lets hope Blogger gets it fixed soon.

Take care.

I saw those mixes the other day and looked at them but did not purchase. darn, why did I pass them up?

The cupcakes look great- never heard of the gizmo before now :D

Hi Sandi... your cupcakes look delish! Wish I had one right now!... as for the blog spacing, it just happens, no matter what you do... after mine is published, if there are extra spaces I just go back in to edit and take them out... pain in the behind for sure!... xoxo Julie Marie

wow, sandi, your cupcakes are beautiful.

blog problems are so frustrating. sometime i find i have issues if i've pasted the text in from a document instead of composing directly in blogger. maybe google your problem?

or ... eat a cupcake!

Sorry can't help you with your blogger problem, but I sure can help you eat those delicious looking cupcakes.

Those look very yummy! I always throw in a box (small size) of "Jello" pudding mix with my cupcakes (just the powder) - makes them scrumptious! Do try it sometime! oxox, Tracie

Mmmm...I so need a sweet fix now!

YES! I cannot get Blogger to space foe me either, so frustrating. I leave spaces between paragraphs and they "disappear" when I post! I have not heard of Dean Jacobs? Although I adore chocolate and raspberry together (especially milk chocolate, yum)
