bourbon brown sugar cupcakes

bourbon brown sugar cupcakes
i have the best parents
ever.
period.

this week my dad came over on his own time to help justin finish up the final mudding, taping and sanding of the new Sheetrock in the mudroom. justin loathes this part of the project

my dad came to the rescue - he is simply the best
now we can move onto the finish work; you see, this has been an on going project for the past year
my dad knows how badly i wanted this project completed and knows how little extra time justin has on the one day a week he has off
my dad definitely deserves a super hero cape and these cupcakes

as some of you may know i bake cupcakes for those that i love- i wrote about it in one of my very first blog posts back in january of 2011- smbp was just a baby back then

so as a thank you to my dad i made these cupcakes for him
of course, made with an extra handful of love

    1. Funny thing is I am not a Bourbon Drinekr either but LOVE experimenting with different liquors while baking and cooking; brown sugar and bourbon seemed perfect for each other :)

      Aren't their cookbooks the greatest!

  10. What a sweet way to say 'thank you'! I love making cupcakes (and am planning to make some very soon, in fact) but most of the time I start thinking about all the different kinds I love, and would love to make, and then I get overwhelmed and can't choose. I think some day I'll have to make a list of my top 20 cupcake flavors and just make a different one each week. These would certainly make the list! :D
