I hope you all enjoyed your 4th of July! I can't believe that I have been blogging for a year now. This July 4th wasn't quite as exciting as last year's, but I did get to make something cute!
I haven't talked about it lately, because this is a health / food blog, but since I was laid off from my firm I have only had 1 interview. So I decided to get a part time job, so I'm not bored out of my mind alone at home all day. I am working at Ann Taylor Loft about 12 hours a week. Which means once I'm working as a lawyer again I will have a great wardrobe, but it also means I went from making over $60 an hour to only $8 an hour.
Anyways, I had to work from 2 - 6pm last night. So that meant no picnic. We did stop to visit my mom in the morning and went to visit my mother - in -law in the evening.
Before I went to work I made cute burgers that I saw Ange make, which were also featured by Bakerella.
I wanted to save time so I stuck to pre-made products. For the brownie "patty" I used No Pudge brownie mix that is mixed only with fat free vanilla yogurt (I used Stoneyfield Farms). I used a Pillsbury mix (following the directions on the box but using egg whites instead of full eggs) for the cupcake "bun". I bought the icing and the sprinkles at Michael's craft store, which has an entire aisle dedicated to baking supplies.
I used three different icing tips, so that each of the toppings looked a little different.
