Not Unproductive

by Courtney on August 12, 2011

I cannot even believe that it is almost 4:00pm. Talk about the day getting completely away from me!

Not that it’s been unproductive by any means…


All I can say is…


I’m not going to want to see another cupcake for a while after today.


And I’m not even done yet. Sheesh.

In case you’re wondering what’s on the menu today, here’s a few that are happenin’…

Buttermilk Chocolate Cupcakes

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Cupcakes

Strawberry-Filled Lemon Cupcakes

Oreo Cream Cupcakes

Neapolitan Cupcakes

Now…I owe all of you a giveaway winner!


First of all, Christina is absolutely blown away by the response that you’ve all given her. She wanted me to let all of you know,

a) Thank you so much!

b) She is in the process of getting an Etsy account together, but orders can still be placed through her email address listed on the website.

So now, our lucky winner IS…entry #131:



Congratulations, Mary!! Please email me at sweettoothcourtney[@]gmail[.]com so I can get you in touch with Christina ASAP!

Now I suppose it’s time to get back to all that frosting…I think I may need a beer tonight! Winking smile

Question for the Afternoon:

What is something that you love to do but can only do it in small doses?

I’ll be more than happy to take a few of those off your hands :)


2 Heidi @ The Sweet Life August 12, 2011 at 4:27 pm

I may have missed this but what do you do with all the cupcakes? They look amazing!!


3 Courtney August 12, 2011 at 7:43 pm

I sometimes do small batches for friends and family :)


4 Ashley@MyFoodFitnessFun August 12, 2011 at 10:19 pm

I think I’d be guilty of eating one too many!


5 Jordan @ food, sweat, and beers August 12, 2011 at 4:27 pm


Whoah, girl, way to hold the fort.

For me, something I can only do it small doses would probably be…. read gossip magazines. Though I get a kick out of it from time to time, the overload can overwhelm!!


6 Ashley@MyFoodFitnessFun August 12, 2011 at 4:36 pm

I love baking but can only do it in small doses too! For one, I like to eat too much of the dough and the finished product too. For two, it’s a lot of work with all of the prepping and cleaning up too! (I’m sure you can relate to all of this today! ;) )


7 Faith @ For the Health of It August 12, 2011 at 6:50 pm

Ditto! I always end up with a tummyache from too many dough samples if I make more than one baked good at a time!


8 Courtney August 12, 2011 at 7:44 pm

I can TOTALLY relate…UGH!


9 Lindsay@ In Sweetness and In Health August 12, 2011 at 4:38 pm

Oh wow, I think you DESERVE a beer tonight after slaving away in the kitchen all day! But, those cupcakes look awesome and sound amazing :). Nice work!


10 Danica August 12, 2011 at 5:02 pm

Yes you definitely deserve a beer tonight! Maybe two? ;)


11 Courtney August 12, 2011 at 7:44 pm

Danica, I think you may be on to something… ;)


12 Shayla @ The Good Life August 12, 2011 at 5:29 pm

I would have loved to help you lick up any extra raw dough in that bowl ;)

There’s certain people I love to hang out with but can only take them in small doses ;)


13 Mallory @ It's Only Life August 12, 2011 at 6:11 pm

Wow.. if I were you I would literally be dreaming about cupcakes! (Ok, I definitely do already, but in a different way :) )

Look so professional!!! Wish i could decorate the way you do!


14 Sweet and Savvy August 12, 2011 at 6:17 pm

In response to your question..

play with attention demanding 4- 8 year olds! I love kids, but after a while.. oh man!


15 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles August 12, 2011 at 6:46 pm

Baking for sure!!!! ….I love it but those darn dishes make it only possible in SMALL doses or I’m done for!
All of those cupcakes are looking pretty darn delicious! YUM! You deserve a beer for sure! :)


16 Gina August 12, 2011 at 7:50 pm

Hey it’s 5:00 somewhere, I say bring on the beer ;)


17 Erica August 12, 2011 at 8:47 pm

i’ve got to say vegas!!! i can only handle doing the vegas-thing for a few days. ;p


18 sara @ the foodie diaries August 12, 2011 at 11:06 pm

Time to kick back with a cold beer and enjoy Jersey Shore on TiVo… oh wait. That’s what I’m doing.. :)


19 Khushboo August 13, 2011 at 1:26 am

Screw Picasso, those are what I call art :)


20 Sarah @ Food and Love Diaries August 13, 2011 at 9:22 am

Running!! I burn myself out on running pretty quick if I don’t do it in small doses.


21 Heather @ Get Healthy with Heather August 13, 2011 at 10:56 am

Holy yum! Those look so good and like such a fun day :)


22 Jackie @ That Deep Breath August 13, 2011 at 1:39 pm

I would probably go into sugar overload with all that cupcake making!


23 Mary @ Bites and Bliss August 17, 2011 at 12:27 pm

Woohoo!! I can’t wait! Emailing you now! :)
Mary @ Bites and Bliss recently posted..So call me a dork.

I know you have probably answered this question in your blog posts, but I’ve been a reader for a while now, and I still can’t figure it out! Are you a caterer? I know you were a teacher and how that ended (hard times for everyone), but I have yet to figure out if you get paid for all the baked goods you make. Do you?


25 Courtney August 19, 2011 at 9:30 am

I’m not a caterer, I just like to make them for friends and family who ask :)


26 Audrey August 19, 2011 at 12:30 pm

Wow, that’s really nice and thoughtful :)
