Warrior Wednesday!

I know I may sound repetitive when I talk about our veterans and troops. But I feel so strongly, being a disabled veteran, that I sometimes feel it’s just not even in your thoughts.

Today is Warrior Wednesday! Have you #HuggedAVeteranToday??

Here’s Duckie’s picture for today….

Lemon Polenta….

Well, I have apparently gotten all the chocolate out of my system this week! ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿซ๐Ÿซ

So for today, I’m present to you….drum roll please….Lemon Polenta Cupcake (which is good on it’s own, but would be a muffin then) with Mascarpone Frosting! Yes!

Delicious! If you’d like to pair it with a wine for dessert, ask Conrad at The Wine Wankers, he’s much more knowledgeable than I am where wine is concerned!

Please check out Conrad and all the wonderful bloggers listed below! They are fabulous!

Please keep the men & women of our military and our veterans in your thoughts and hearts! If you’d like to donate to a veteran in need, go to my non profit Cupcakes Confidential and place an order or make a donation. It’s hard for veterans to ask for help, I know, as I am one. So when one does, we need to wake up and pay attention! They aren’t asking for hand outs, they are just in a bind! Despite media crap, veterans aren’t treated the best, we fight every day for every little thing. It’s a constant battle that NO VETERAN should have to endure!

I’ll see you back here tomorrow!

Double Double Toil & Trouble….Or Not

Happy Wednesday everyone….you’re half way through your week! Yes!! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

I had a request for some super duper chocolate cupcakes with chocolate frosting. Well….I can’t ever just do a basic cupcake, so I had to bring it up a notch!

Today’s Cupcake is a Double Chocolate Cupcake with Double Chocolate Fudge Frosting….

20140129-162018.jpg

Let me tell you, I was thrilled with having left over frosting, as I truly wanted to eat the entire batch! Luckily, I had some restraint and probably only ingested about a cup….that’s not a lot….right??

I look forward to seeing you all back here tomorrow!

If you’d like, I’m entered into two contests….one is through Facebook, go to OnTheGoCookingShow, like their page, click on the box near the top that says FB Contest and you can vote daily through Feb. 3rd for my Browned Butter Cupcake with Lobster a Filling and Cream Cheese and Fresh Chive Frosting cupcake. When you vote, you have to wait 24 hrs before you can vote again! I’d really appreciate the support!

The other is through Cuisinart. Click this link Cuisinart Contest and share it on FB and where you see the five stars that look filled in, you can use your mouse or finger to give my cupcake up to 5 stars to become a finalist. Again, I would appreciate the support!

Please remember the men and women that are currently serving in our military and our veterans. If you’d like to help a veteran in need, go to my non profit Cupcakes Confidential and place an order or make a donation online. If you have dietary restrictions, questions, special requests, or a larger order please use the contact form or call me directly.

It’s a Nut Free Day

Happy Tuesday all! Hope your week is starting out well!

Since we’ve talked about all the different types of dietary restrictions, today I’m focusing on nut allergies. It’s so important to read the labels of everything you are using in your cupcake and foods for someone that has a nut allergy. I still read the labels on the brands I’m very familiar with and trust completely….but please READ the label!

Today’s Cupcake is a Nut Free Vanilla Cupcake Mini with Purple Vanilla Buttercream Frosting. I made these for my Canadian neighbors daughter who I found out has a nut allergy. She should enjoy my cupcakes as well, right?!?!

20140114-152333.jpg

She said they were delicious, but was upset her mother told me about the allergy. When you have to carry an epi-pen with you, everyone should know, anaphylaxis is nothing to be ashamed of and is so deadly! So please be very careful and sensitive if you know someone with a nut allergy.

Please check out the bloggers below….I promise you will enjoy each one and be educated in many different things!

As always keep our troops and veterans in your hearts and thoughts. If you’d like to help a veteran in need go to Cupcakes Confidential and make a donation or place an order for yourself, someone special or for an event. All the money right now goes directly to a veteran in need, currently I pay all the costs out of my pocket. It is a non-profit so don’t hesitate to help if you can, I promise you these are the BEST cupcakes you have ever had, ask anyone who’s had them. I offer vegan, gluten free, diabetic, nut allergy and cocoa allergy cupcakes. If you have a dietary restriction or don’t see what you want, call me directly or use the contact form.

See you back here tomorrow! Sending a ๐Ÿ˜‰ (wink) and a ๐Ÿ˜Š (smile)!!!

Butter Rum?? Who came up with this combo??

Happy Saturday! Hope you’re enjoying your day and I hope you’ll have a blessed weekend!

I think it’s possible that I went a bit wacky today trying to pair butter, rum (not real rum, the extract rum) and butterscotch! But I had to give it a whirl!

Today’s Cupcake is a Butter Rum Cupcake with Butterscotch Ganache Filling and Drizzle with a Butter Rum Buttercream Frosting. I must tell you in advance that the ENTIRE house smells like butter rum now….not sure if that’s good or bad yet! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š

20140104-135607.jpg

Looks devine and tastes AMAZING….who knew!?!?

I hate to keep being repetitive but please keep our soldiers in your hearts and our veterans. If you would like to donate to my non profit please do or you can place an order for cupcakes that are so much better than store bought since they’re made from scratch with local ingredients and a big dash of love! Just go to Cupcakes Confidential , we offer vegan, gluten free, diabetic friendly, and nut allergy friendly options. Just use the contact form and let me know if you have a special request or dietary request!

I’ll see you back here Monday!

Sending you a ๐Ÿ˜‰ and a ๐Ÿ˜Š!!

Happy Friday all! I hope you’re ready for your weekend!

I hope you’ve had a chance to check out the bloggers I’ve got listed below! I truly think you’d like what they have to say and you never know what you might learn!!

This is a picture of all the bracelets I’ve received from the sweetest young boy, Jack, who is visiting from Canada. He apparently really loves my cupcakes! Ahhhh….the sweetness of young kids, melts my heart! ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’ž

20131230-161752.jpg

I’ll be sure to post a picture of Jack and his twin brother Alex before they leave. They are identical twins, but you’d never know it now!

See you back here tomorrow!

As always, sending you a ๐Ÿ˜‰ and a ๐Ÿ˜Š!!

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.

20131227-142733.jpg

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 ๐Ÿ˜‰ and ๐Ÿ˜Š!!!

Blue Monday

20131223-165808.jpg

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!
