The King

Here's the updated photo. I took the poorly lit one down to save your eyes the sight!

I realize this photo is pretty bad, but it's 6:15 pm in the middle of November in Michigan and I'm too lazy to bust out the lamps. So, there! I will save the good-looking cupcakes for tomorrow so I can take a few photos on the porch in the sunlight and I'll add the best one up there. This recipe came from Bake and Destroy and is called Vegan Elvis Comeback Special Cupcake. How awesome is that? And it tastes good too! Dyl claims it's the best cupcake I've made yet. My peanut butter buttercream was really thick and heavy (again, possibly due to my homemade powdered sugar -- buy powdered sugar at the store already, woman!), so I could only manage to pipe little stars on top of the cupcake. I'm not sure if I'll ever be able to get all of that peanut butter buttercream out of my reusable pastry bag, but, by golly, I'll try.

Here's a YouTube video of one of my personal favorite songs from the Comeback Concert. And here's my and Dyl's almost wedding song. (Leave it up to us to pick the most depressing wedding song in the world.) We ended up going to the courthouse, but I think it stills counts. And here's my favorite song written about Elvis. I could do this forever!

Oh, P.S. My Lana is getting surgery tomorrow (gettin' spayed). Please send good wishes to her and her worried mama.


  1. Good luck, Lana! Tell your mama not to worry too much. (Easier said than done, I know, I know.)
    Keep us posted on how things go, please?

    1. Thank you! I've already heard from the vet and she did just fine! I am picking her up in the morning and have the day off from work to spoil her. So relieved!
