Vanilla Cupcake Painting & Tapas in Madrid

We've been moving my mother into her new apartment so I'm a little late in letting you know that this little Vanilla Cupcake painting is up for auction on eBay. It ends Thursday evening this week, so you might want to check it out soon if you're interested.

A juicy red cherry sits high atop fluffy blue frosting on a moist vanilla bean cupcake. Wrapped in a red and white dotted liner, this made from scratch confection will bring a smile to your face and a touch of whimsy to your kitchen.
A red and white dotted ribbon is wrapped around the edges and tied in a bow at the top.

Below are a variety of the many different Tapas that we ate during our stay in Spain....

Ham with a white sauce on toast, and ham with a spicy sauce on toast....

Our son likes to frequent Tapas Bars because you order a drink and your food is free.

We would all three order our usual Pepsi and then got our choice of a Tapas from the menu. Needless to say we didn't spend much on food while we were gone.
Red peppers with tuna on toast.....

Spain's famous ham with cheese.....
Thanks for putting up with my vacation photos!
