When you spend a week doing this:

And this:

Celebrating the marriage of two fabulous people:

And you barely checked your phone other than to just text someone your location at the beach:

It's a safe bet you didn't have time to blog.

Even though you had time to bake these:

(Anything for people you love, right?)

Cupcakes made with this recipe

Frosting for 36 cupcakes (plus extra since I went light):

1 32oz bag confectioner's sugar
2 sticks butter, cold but softened, sliced
4oz cream cheese
~1/4 cup milk
2 teaspoons vanilla

Whip together butter, cream cheese and sugar until it's light and fluffy. Carefully add milk and vanilla, watching the consistency as you go. If it thins before you've added all the milk, stop! If it's too thick still, add a little more (1 tablespoon at a time). I refrigerated the frosting (after coloring it) for a little before frosting the cupcakes (which must be cooled completely before icing) to help the frosting stay put a bit better.
