Cutie Pie Mini Brownie Cupcakes ~ Sweetheart Tea


Yes, it is Saturday night and I am baking. Not really into baking much. When I was much younger, yes, I enjoyed it. For some reason, I don't now. But, tonight I thought I would...since we are having our annual "Sweetheart Tea" at the antique mall, Ziegler's In the Country, where we have a booth. Finger foods are best since people will be coming in and snacking as well as shopping. My first year I thought I would make use of my heart shaped cake pans (really, I'm not into baking) and since it was difficult to walk around with a major piece of cake, my lovely pink and white concoction was kind of ignored. (Maybe this has something to do with my bake-a-phob.) I might even have a picture of it somewhere...I'll have to scan it.


Anyway, I decided the smaller, the better. I remembered my Pampered Chef mini muffin pan. Yes! This would do the trick. Small, little tiny cupcakes from a brownie mix, a cinch! Well, since I'm not used to baking, getting the batter INTO the teeny tiny muffin paper cups was tedious. But, I turned on the iPOD (this is starting to sound like an infommercial) and let the music move me...


And these are what I came up with....candy hearts and all. They still make me chuckle with their goofy short sayings of love: "Cutie Pie, Only You, My Love," etc. Except of course, now, we are up to date with the ones that read "Email Me" and "Fax Me!" Maybe they will come up with "Text Me" unless they have already and I didn't come across it yet.
What do you normally do on a Saturday evening? I'm usually watching a movie from Netflix (another endorsement....at least I'm not linking to each website!) because as a Radio/TV/Film major in college, this is one of my favorite things to do. I really prefer the big screen. I haven't done that in awhile. Anything good playing??? Maybe I can get my "True Love" to take me for Valentine's Day!




PS. Since I normally show my latest "finds" ... notice the ceramic purple serving trays? DH and I happened upon a moving sale this morning and I picked up four of these (two in blue glass and the two shown above) for 50 cents! Although not antiques, they were a great buy!

Hi Jillian, I love your cupcakes!! The conversation heart is the perfect topping ~ I got married on Valentine's Day and conversation hearts were part of our gift to our guests..they hold a special spot in my heart :) I love Saturday nights.. hang out at home watching TV/movie with my honey..although tonight he is napping :)

Thanks for stopping by.. I put a link in my post about my 2 x 2 square~basically it gets sent on and sewn with other 2 x 2 squares into a dress for a doll that will be donated....I believed the finished product will be published in a doll magazine.

I hope you have a great rest of your weekend~I'm going to the antique fair tomorrow! Yippee!!
