Fizzy Cupcakes

This month's mystery box cupcake challenge is to bake a cupcake with something fizzy in it. This contest is on Sweetest Kitchen. It has been going on for a year now and this is the last month. I also did this contest last month (see Rose Cupcakes). I baked white cupcakes with Izze Frosting. Izze is a sparkling fruit drink that I love. I also made vanilla buttercream and incorporated Izze into that. Here are the prizes:

A selection of handmade crafts by Angelas Images
 A five dollar gift card to Bake It Pretty
 A seven dollar gift card to Beanilla
  Two packs of cupcake wrappers by Maisie Fantaisie
 A handmade cupcake charm by Miss Kitty Creations
 600 cupcake liners Simply Caked
 A five dollar gift card to Sweet Cuppin Cakes
 Three children's books by Tundra Books


The Cupcakes




I also made lots of other things since I last wrote a post. Here are a few of them.







Yum!

This is a Frozen Hot Chocolate Milkshake!





Isn't this just the cutest little face you've ever seen?

We named him Angus. 




Super Dog!

Do I need to comment?


Love the whiskers!

My Week

I have mentioned before that I took a cooking class at cooks of crocus hill for pie. I also recently took one for cake decorating; it was incredible. I learned so much. My food (almost) always tastes good but this brought my presentation to a whole new level. If you ever go to Minnesota, I suggest going to one of their classes. Both of my classes I did with Carrie Franzen. Here are some photos of my cake and other things I have done lately. We also got a puppy! I'm sorry that I'm a little bit obsessive with the camera. I had 41 photos but decided to only post a few. Recipes will be posted later!
