Another Fishy Day!

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you’re looking forward to the weekend and a soon to be New Year! I’d like to wish you all a truly blessed new year and hopefully one that is the best yet!

So I just wanted to take a moment and explain why I started Cupcakes Confidential. I’m a disabled veteran from Desert Storm. Once you become a veteran the military and government dismiss you and you are now just a statistic. It’s a constant struggle and fight to get anything whether it be proper health care, the proper disability rating, or any other options. So when a veteran asks for help, it’s not asking for a hand out, they are truly in need. So please don’t dismiss them. Try and understand how hard it is for a veteran to even ASK for help. This is why I started my online non profit cupcake company.

So Today’s Cupcake is a Browned Butter Cupcake with Lobster Filling with a Cream Cheese and Fresh Chive Frosting.

Looks good right?? They disappeared from a little boy across the street in about 5 minutes! He was in love, so he gave me a shark tooth for taking him the cupcakes. He’s from Canada so this must have been very special to him, he’s about 9 years old.

As always remember our veterans and place an order online or make a donation right there on the website.

See you back here tomorrow! Sending you a 😉 and 😊!!!

If you’d want to pair this with a good wine, contact Conrad at The Wine Wankers he’s the official go to guy on my more gourmet cupcakes!

I’ll say it again, please remember those who have fought for our country and those currently fighting this holiday season so that you can enjoy this time. To help a veteran please go yo Cupcakes Confidential and place an order or make a donation right online to help a veteran out this time of year and all year long!

Wishing you all the best! ❄️⛄️❄️⛄️

Friday is Preserves Day 🎉🎉

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you’re excited for your weekend!! 🎉🎉🎉

I’m calling today official preserves day! Why shouldn’t we have a day solely dedicated to the deliciousness of canned preserves made by wonderful canners (mason jars….not actual cans!!)?!?!

So for Today’s Cupcake I made a Browned Butter Cupcake with Apricot Preserves Frosting…mmm…mmm!

20131213-142928.jpg

These turned out very well, I must say, or better than I hoped! I bought a bunch of preserves from our local North Port Farmers Market and boy they don’t disappoint!

I was trying to make something that wasn’t too sweet for my Canadian neighbors since they are leaving for the holidays tomorrow, they don’t like cloyingly sweet anything!

Also, I felt I was quite capable of multi-tasking today, so I decided to make Gumbo for my boy! Well….let’s just say I burned my hand in a few places….next time I’ll remember to do one thing at a time!

As always my online cupcake company is a non profit that gives back to other veterans, like me, who fall on hard times. All the money generator right now goes 100% to a veteran in need. I hope you’ll remember them this holiday season and go to my site and place an order or make a donation. It’s all right there for you to do at Cupcakes Confidential and it’s easy and always pay it forward!

I’ll see you back here tomorrow, possibly with a picture of how my Gumbo turned out!

Sending you a 😉 and a 😊!!
