Woof! It's Nigel's First Birthday Cupcakes!

We had a doggie birthday at our house this week...Nigel's first birthday. He invited two friends...Chuck and Harry...and, of course, Layla, his big sister!

I made them Billy's Vanilla Vanilla Cupcakes with Vanilla Vanilla Frosting! And, they all loved the cupcakes.

Cupcakes for Nigel's friends.

Layla loves the birthday parties...anybody's birthday party is okay with her!

Let me tell you about Nigel...who is a french bulldog...He loves his job. He should...he made it up all by himself...He refers to himself as the Yard Manager...and he does his best to protect us from chipmonks, birds of all kinds, and any other critter that happens into our yard. He takes this job very seriously, marching/running out the door...checking every corner the yard looking to spot untoward activity. He quickly follows up on every lead...which may mean sticking his head in a nice hole he's located!

Thank goodness Nigel recognizes when it's time for the Yard Manager to take a well-deserved break. This is hard work for a 1-year-old!

    Really adorable dogs

  10. Both are so cute. Bulldogs (all of them- English, French and American) are beautifully adorable dogs. :)

  11. Hi Cupcake Queen,

    Nigel is just so *cute.* He's partly why I read your blog often, not to mention of course that your blog is all around fabulous. :)

    Take care.


  12. hey there cupcake queen....first time to visit, and so glad I did. I have a blond Frenchie and she sounds alot like Nigel.

    I will have to try several of these...they look amazing.

  13. I just came across your blog, and was drawn to the name becuase I recently bought a recipe book with 52 cupcake recipes and have vowed to make them all over the next couple of years!

    Hi CQ,

    I love your blog. I'm sorry that I'm about hijack this thread, but I would really love to hear your suggestions. I'm from New York and I'm a cupcake fiend. I'm heading down to DC on business in a few weeks. I would like to know where are the best places/shops to buy cupcakes? I haven't heard great reviews about Cakelove, so I would like to venture out to others. I will be located pretty much in the middle by Union Station. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!
