Here it is:
I got nice, new, super bright paper. And a new unfinished shadowbox frame so I can create another pretty quilled lady. This time I have a Spring one in mind. In my brain she is so gorgeous. Let's see how she develops. You can find these boxes online at The Quilling Superstore. I ordered on Saturday afternoon and already got them!
This weekend we had some lovely older ladies over and I decided to make them cupcakes. It was a box (I know, I know.) But it was a delicious vanilla bean cake mix from Trader Joe's and I made lemon cream cheese frosting to top them off. Let me just say there is only 1 left... out of 32!
I don't usually like to share my secrets but this one is too good to keep to myself:
Lemon Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 (8 oz.) brick of Philly Cream Cheese (softened)
4 tbsp. salted butter (softened)
1 teaspoon GOOD vanilla
2 cups of powdered sugar (you can use up to 4 cups depending on how sweet and "crunchy" you like your frosting)
zest and juice of 1 lemon
I also wanted to share an interview that went online last week at Discover Paper. Hope you can all read along and share your comments.
Have a lemony cream cheesy SWEET filled week. And don't let anybody tick you off! ;)
