Cupcakes, cupcakes, cupcakes

Well, I haven't been posting since school got out. Plus I have been working my little booty off making cupcakes at my new job. I got a job at a cupcake bakery in Lake Forest, CA. Oddly enough it is down the street from the first house I lived in when we first moved to south orange county. Although the center we are in was leveled and is all new now.

So, I have been making cupcakes and more cupcakes since right before Memorial Day. I really enjoy my job. I have had a lot of friends come in to try it out and to visit. I work 40 hours a week baking and decorating. Just this week we decided to donate cupcakes to a charity event that is also doing a cupcake contest! So, we are entering. It should be fun. We brainstormed the other day and should be trying out our suggestions soon.

As for school, things don't look good. I have three classes left. 2 internship classes taken consecutively and one pastry class. Well, the pastry class cannot be taken without the first intern class. I have to take it first or at the same time as the pastry class. Unfortunately, I could not get into the internship class last semester. I register today for fall and both the internship class and pastry class are full. It makes me mad because it sets me back a whole year because the pastry class is only offered in the fall. Which means even if I can get the internship class in the spring, I have to wait until the following fall to take the pastry class. Of course, that class is the whole reason I am going through the program in the first place!! So I am frustrated and mad. I thought having the 4th day of registration as my date I would be okay. Not so much. It pretty much sucks.

Anyway, here are some pics of some of our cupcakes from work. Some are special orders. Don't they look yummy?


  1. Oh,my goodness!!!! How about dessert first!!!
    These look yummmmmmmmmie! They are so beautiful! So happy for you Melody!!!!

  2. They look absolutely grand! I feel your pain with the courses. Can't you write a note to the instructor or just go to the class and see if anyone drops? Students at OC did that ALL the time when I taught there. Some were successful--some were not. Or, maybe it does not work that way in the pastry department. Mill

  3. They are delicious!!! Love them and love you! I really hope that things work out with school. You have worked so long and hard! You deserve to get in. Fingers crossed for you my friend. Much love!

  4. Those look Fantabulous!!!! Sorry about school, that sucks!!! I hope people drop out and you are able to get in!!!!
