The oven should be preheated to 325 degrees.

Mix until everything is combined.  Into it add buttermilk, oil, vanilla, eggs and warm water. Beat the mixture on medium speed till it gets smooth. Fill the muffin tins 2/3 full. Bake it for 20 minutes or till a toothpick that is inserted in the middle of the cake comes out clean.

In another bowl, make the frosting. Use a hand mixer to beat the butter till it gets fluffy. Add in the vanilla extract and cocoa powder. Beat till everything is combined well. Beat in one cup sugar first. Once mixed well, repeat the process. Transfer it into a piping bag. Pipe it into the cooled cupcakes.

Annie E,

Ellamae,

and Lacy have a new French friend.

Meet Suzette.  She recently arrived at the BWH.  Standing only 26 inches tall, she is smaller than the other girls.

Suzette is going to sit on the dresser and hold some of my necklaces.  She works well with the new color scheme in my bedroom.

She may hold a broach or two.

Suzette may even become an angel!

So glad you stopped by today to meet Suzette.
