Now, what to do with the other half of the cupcake batter? It's a graham cracker based batter, so whatever I do will have to be compatible with graham crackers. BTW, graham crackers are Newman's favorite treat. Who is Newman, you say? Check out my other blog at www.blogmydog.wordpress.com. He gets some face time over there.
I figure my options for the graham cracker cupcakes are limited to a few ingredients like marshmallow, chocolate, coconut... can't think of any more. Maybe I could do a cheesecake icing and put cherries on top. I don't know at this point. I've been getting home from work so late that I'm way too tired to stay up till midnight making cupcakes, so the batter is in the fridge waiting for me.
Every day I ask it, "Graham cracker, do you still love me?"
In the process of baking... almost done...
Hey... wait a minute... where'd that cupcake go? See the missing one in the lower left corner?
Was it Harper Lee?
Not that sweet, innocent face.
Ok, I admit it. It was me.
Someone had to test - quality control, you know!
In our awesome government office, we all received an email from the Secretary of Labor last month telling us that it was homo month - I'm sure she worded it differently, but it was basically gay rights month. So, in honor of our Secretary and the gays, I created the Gay Pride Cupcakes. I just loved telling the conservative religious co-workers that the cupcakes were for "the gays".
(It's ok that I refer to them as "the gays"... I have exclusive permission.)
On a side note, I also made devil's food cupcakes with chocolate fudge icing... it goes a little something like this...
The cupcakes were a big hit... even the "gay" ones!
I made the famous tye-dye cupcakes, as well as some devil's food chocolate with chocolate fudge frosting and little pastel sprinkly dots on top.
In the forthcoming pictures you'll see the most awesomest invention ever - the Cupcake Courier. The one that's pictured is blue - borrowed from my friend Susan.
And what came in the mail last week? My very own Cupcake Courier in pink! (No pics of it yet.) I can't wait to use it. It will hold 36 cupcakes or muffins, is easy to transport, and is very attractive. I always get compliments when I borrow Susan's CC. Now I have one of my very own. It was a Happy Birthday to me (from me) present! Those are the best kind - you always get what you want!
So... stay tuned for some tye-dye and devil's food pics.
Funny thing... I sent Tiffany a purse-sized mirror as well!
