I Didn't Buy Them

I was asked where I bought these decedent treats last night at book club and I am happy to say that I MADE THEM!  Of course it took all day and several botches batches of batter, but yes, I made them all by myself. My mother-in-law gave me the cream puff recipe and at first I wasn't too sure I was making it right, but they did turn out fabulous.  The little cupcakes were another matter.  I wanted to make red velvet cupcakes, but they didn't turn out; all three times.  Betty Crocker to the rescue, and not a moment too soon.  I was so glad I had that.  I finished the cupcakes with the little sugar cut outs just in time for book club.  Whew!
On a side note, the little cut outs were made with my Cricut Cake machine.  My mother-in-law gave it to me for Christmas and I haven't had the opportunity to use it until now.  It takes a bit of figuring out to get it to do what you want, but it finally did what I wanted.  I get to try it out this weekend on Tyson's birthday.  Hopefully it works!
