Today I'm the "Guest Sweetie" at the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  Want to know why?  It's because my "A Quick Kitty" card was one of Rachel's picks for the week.  It certainly wasn't because of my sweet and sunny personality.  LOL, can you hear me cackling.

 I LOVE cake and icing and every week Rachel tortures me with a photo of an over the top cupcake or cupcakes. I am crazy with desire for the goodies in her inspiration photos. This week is no different. Who could resist that swirl of chocolate icing. I wonder if there's some yummy white fluffy stuff on the inside...

This week the challenge is sponsored by Di's Digital Downloads. You can get all the details about the prize, and challenge rules over on Cupcake Inspirations, which is where you will link up your creation.
