Cupcakes and Skin Care

August 12, 2010

Well it’s that time of the month again. No, not that time, this time. Promoting my business time! I’ve been working hard at developing my business, with the help of the main company, and really making a difference in people’s lives. Being a part if this ground floor opportunity had been a great learning experience, and has helped me see that I can create a living from doing something I love. The best part, though, is being able to help others- which has, and always will be, a huge goal of mine.

A few months ago, Lori and Michelle, owners of Pure2Raw blog and Twin Cakes Bakery, expressed concern over the lingering acne problems they faced (pun intended). I gave them some information and my personal experience with Unblemish, Rodan + Fields Dermatologists’ acne solution product and they gave it a try. Well, after two months, they are sharing their story of success. And they’re not the only ones. I have countless friends with cystic acne, well, used to have cystic acne. Customers that had horrible sun damage and dark spots on their cheeks and chin, only to find that there are products out there that truly work.

Anyway, I wanted to share that information with you, because it made me happy to hear their story. Also, I have to promote the goods. 😉 I am feelin’ the skin care love today. If anyone is in need of some skin care assistance, don’t hesitate to email me. I know my skin care, and skin problems, and can help. Also, I am in need of a few key people to help with the expansion of my business. I’m always looking for dedicated, compassionate, and driven people… are you up for it? Want more info?

Cupcakes. (good segway, right?) What about the cupcakes? And what do cupcakes have to do with skin care? Well, nothing, except that I made some de-lic-ious chocolate cupcakes, gluten free and vegan, and wanted to share them with you.

Unfortunately for you, and my waistline, I can’t physically share them with you, but I can definitely let you see them. That’s just as good, right?

So, cupcakes… I did a trial and error run at this one, but the first batch of gluten free, vegan, and moist, chocolate cupcakes came out great. I’m working on perfecting it, but for now, take a look at these:

Um... I ran out of paper cupcake holders...

These were made with a gluten free flour mix, applesauce instead of oil, maple syrup and a few other refined sugar subs, and carob powder, making these babies low in sugar and clean eats all the way. Now to find a frosting…

Almond Butter Mousse

2 Tbsp almond butter, 2 Tbsp plain greek yogurt (yeah, takes away the veganish…), a few drops of vanilla Stevia, mix altogether, and you’ve got mousse… or frosting, whichever way you choose to look at it.

Come to me, my love.

Oh, but I did not stop there. It just so happens that I was lucky enough to get my packaged order from Twin Cakes Bakery (see the lovely ladies from above writing) in the mail the day I made these.

Lucky does not even begin to describe how ridiculously amazing the cupcakes could become…

Someone up there loves me...

Twin Cakes Chocolate Frosting. Free of gluten, wheat, dairy, egg, soy, corn, casein, lactose, and peanut. And FREAKIN' AMAZING.

Holy moly! Rich, creamy, chocolately, soft, sweet.

And everything is made better, with chocolate… and in this case, Chocolate Frosting from Twin Cakes Bakeryhow do they do it?

Mmmmmmmm……………..

I love your homemade cupcake cups. I once had a friend use used beer cans, which was interesting.

Everything is better with frosting.

You need to get those silicone baking molds I just posted about. I used them yesterday and they are awesome.
