Texas Tech Cupcakes

I hope to post more pictures from Ryan's Graduation Party. Here are the cupcakes before I placed them on the tiered cake plates.
These were done by a bakery in Forney. You can barely see it, but the cupcakes are black/white.

My First Soiree - circa 1987

Isn't this classy? Everything was matching red plastic. I do not remember the menu, but keep in mind that this was definitely a party on a budget. I think I made like $8.00 a hour - that was good money for a 22 year old.

Rachael Ray's Cheesy Corn Bites



I made this recipe for Memorial Day. I placed a jalapeno slice on each one using jalapenos in a jar. Next time I make them I might add cumin and cayenne pepper for an added kick. They were a big hit, and gone almost instantly, so I recommend using more than one bag of Tostito Scoops.
