Cupcakes and Driver’s License

“You look absolutely delectable…”

I baked Peach Bourbon cupcakes for my great grandmother’s (Maw Maw P.’s) seventh 85th birthday…none of us are really sure just how old she is because every time we ask the answer is 85;)

I don’t mean to brag…but….my cupcakes were quite spectacular! They were so delicious that I just had to share the recipe with y’all (in my Paula Dean voice). As I have said before in the Monthly Macaroons: May 2012 blog, I have a thing for pastries. Cupcakes, Rice Krispie treats, and mint chocolate ice cream will win this VIP’s heart forever…or at least until I have finished all of my treats…

The Big Book of Cupcakes by Betty Crocker is a great place to find easy to make, fabulously delicious cupcake recipes! It includes icing techniques and decorating tips for cupcake amateurs like myself!

Cupcake Recipe (Makes 24 Cupcakes):

  • 6 medium peaches, peeled
  • 2 1/2 cups of all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2/3 cup of butter or margarine, softened
  • 1 cup of granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 tablespoon of bourbon/whiskey
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • 2 tablespoons of all-purpose flour


  • 1/2 cup of butter or margarine, softened
  • 5 to 6 cups of powdered sugar
  • 2 teaspoons of bourbon
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla
  • thin peach slices, if desired
Adding fresh peach slices gives the cupcakes a burst of sweet flavor and a beautiful look!

Guess who is now a licensed driver?! This fashionista…that’s who! As a reward for being such a fabulous driver, my mommykins got me a little reward…a Wanda’s Garden II Pink Amethyst ring from Pandora purchased at the Jewel Shoppe in Louisville, Mississippi. Oh, how I long to have a ring on every finger…just like Phoebe Buffay from Friends! I cannot wait to start cruising around dressed in vintage apparel while jamming out to 80s music with my Giant Schnauzer, Ziva…we…will…be…ADORABLE!:)

Dear Deddy,

I would love to have a VW Karmann Ghia…and I shall call her GG! Mom said she was sick and tired of hearing “Karmann Ghia” and if I said it one more time…she was going to take away my computer charger…So, I have to now beg you…I am including this letter to you in my blog to express my deep desire to own a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia…no particular color, but since you asked…my dream color is Verbena Green! So…Deddy, pretty please with no cherries (I know how we both hate cherries.) on top will you buy me a Volkswagen Karmann Ghia?

  1. I really think your Deddy should get you one- can you believe, that was MY dream car! I am not just saying that either! I wanted beige with a red interior… Congrats on the license!
