Purplicious Softball Team Cupcakes

To celebrate our Purplicious softball team I did what I always do - I made treats! Here are some fabulous Meyer Lemon Cupcakes with Lemon Curd filling and Buttercreamy Frosting. Equally as great were the Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcake with the Buttercreamy Frosting.
(I also served some of the Chocolate Chip Cookie Cupcake a la mode all topped with a drizzle of homemade hot fudge sauce, hmmmm!)

Apple Pie

Happy Birthday to my honey! Yep, my hubby is not a cake (or cupcake) kinda guy but he does love a great pie! And this is a great Apple Pie - light, flaky, buttery crust and piled high with delicious apples!
