Cupcakes Left At The Door!

Isn't it wonderful to come home and find sweet goodies left at your door?! That is what happened this weekend when we came home from being out and about! Sweet friends Will & Marcia came by to say hello. So sorry we missed them but thrilled for the gift they left behind. Now I need to "pass it along" and do a kindness to another.
Marcia is known for her cooking/baking treats. Look at the pretty glitter to! THANK YOU Marcia!
The chocolate cake is so moist and the pink frosting is so creamy and yummy!
Sweetened to perfection...
They brought 8 cupcakes and by the time I took the pictures, 2 cupcakes disappeared!I stored the cupcakes in this old~fashioned glass baking dish. I love the lid with a little handle. (Just like the vintage refrigerator glass containers).
I bought it at Walmart and going back for more. The name brand is "Arbor".
I love their glass baking cake/casserole pans with handles to!

1 more cupcake disappeared in these pictures!
Have a SWEET week!

Why does no one leave cupcakes at my doorstep? How wonderful that was.

What simply beautiful flowers...opps, cupcakes! What a wonderful friend. Love the glass dish with a lid. I have some older dishes like it but more narrow. Love the look.

Hi Maryjane...I bought that same cassorole dish at Wally's world too...along with the wooden dryer rack that you showed a while back.
I love them both...and I only wish I would have found yummy glittery pink cupcakes there too!

How delicious! I've enjoyed looking at some of your other tea time posts.

Hi Maryjane, I just came across your blog. By the name of it, I had a feeling you are LDS. Do you live in UT? The reason I'm asking is because I'm going there for a family reunion this Summer, and would like to stop by good vintage stores when I'm there. Thank you.

Hi Maryjane, (that's my sister's name, BTW)

What a SWEET gesture (pun intended)!
The cuppies look lovely & now I'm craving chocolate cake.

I was not aware that Walmart had such glass dishes. They remind me of the refrigerator glass containers that were so popular when I was a child. I have one rectangle that was my Mother's but alas, no lid for it.
I may have to start a new collection! Thanks for showing it to us (I think...LOL)

Maryjane:
How wonderful that I would stop by just in time for cupcakes. Delicious and pretty, too! I especially love your vintage-y Walmart find. I might have to check those out. I'm doing my best to get away from plastic!

Hugs to you for your thoughtfulness regarding Brenda, too. You're so kind.

Jean Tuthill said...

What sweet friends you have and the cupcakes look so good! I like the glass pan with the lid, it looks so old-fashioned, just what I love. I'll have to look at my WM to see if they carry it. Have a great weekend!

Rebecca @ Belle Blog said...

Yummy! How come there aren't ever treats on my door when I get home? Oh a girl can wish can't she. I am planning a fabulous tea party with lots of pink and cupcakes and roses this summer. I think I'll make some glitter cupcakes like those for my tea party. Yumm!
Stop by I'm having a giveaway at Belle Maison.

I've been wishing for some lidded glass dishes like that. My mother-in-law has some that are very old. I'm so glad to know they're available right down the road. I've probably rushed by them a million times on the way to get cereal and milk. Thanks for encouraging me to take time to slow down and smell the cupcakes (and see the cupcake dishes).

Mimi Sue said...

They look so delish! Love your glass dish. I'm going to go look for one. Mimi

Cheryl said...

What yummmmmmy cupcakes, and the glitter just adds the perfect touch. Very wonderful container. Think I need to plan a trip to Wahlmart. Such a lovely and happy blog you have!!

Ruth Anne said...

I can't believe you found the "May Flower" dishes! I have always loved them also. Mommy told me she loved those dishes,as they were her "pride and joy" when first married. She regreted not having the set. She would be so thrilled to know you have them! I believe there are still a few pieces of her set, you could add to your yours! I love you so much!!

Rosewood Cottage said...
