Making Chase's cupcakes wouldn't be easy only because he loves so many things about NASCAR racing, the drivers, the logos, the tires, the numbers, the jumpsuits, you name it, the list goes on and on....This year, his party was a go kart birthday party and it was really an exciting thrill for the guests AND their parents. Everyone who was invited attended and no one complained about the distance or how early the party was set for. It was so refreshing to host something so different. The racing was so exhilarating and really got everyone's adrenalin pumping. The indoor track really looked like something out of Chase's dream place. He was smiling from ear to ear the whole time. My son is so obsessed with NASCAR, really any kind of racing and transportation. He was so happy to have this kind of experience with all the people he cares about!

My friend Sean from high school contacted me and requested volleyball themed red velvet cupcakes for his daughter's birthday. Cierra who is turning 14 is on her high school team and participating in a volleyball tournament (that can potentially last all day) on her birthday. Sean is a great Dad. He is a foodie with a big garden and always cooks and bakes for his family. He has made Barbie doll cakes and I remember a toy soldier cake and last year made his son a huge steak (as requested) on his birthday. This week Sean went back to work after some time off for his knee to heal. It's been a rough week back and he wanted Cierra to have something special at the tournament to share with her teammates. I was glad to get to see him on the delivery but really happy to "serve up" these cupcakes for such a great girl!
