My mums birthday ..

Thanks to a special friend -Coral,who shared
her cupcake bouquet with me, I was able to make
one for my mums birthday cake tonight.

Mum -nana, Mad & Seb.
As we were leaving the waitress asked if I made them, told her it was just a hobby. She said the apprentice chef saw me walking in with it, and ran out and told everyone she just saw the most beautiful cake. She apprently is a cupcake fanatic like me ..even down to getting a tattoo - I cant go that far LOL
Anyway, the waitress called out to her that I was there as she wanted to speak to me ..
The waitess went to the door and yelled out ...
" ..... the CUPCAKE LADY is here !! "
well my SIL burst out laughing and my brother thinks its hilarious ..
think I will be know as the
