Congratulations for what? Just for being you and being awesome and appreciating these amazing cupcakes as much as I do. I think that deserves a round of applause, a firm handshake, a hearty slap on the back, a shot of fine bourbon, a Cuban cigar. Good work friends. Looking at sweets all day isn't easy, I know.
Why oh why does marzipan have to taste like marzipan? It's so lovely to look at and you can make such adorable little things with it. I just wish it tasted like, well, anything other than it does. Every Christmas my great aunt Mary used to bring over a plate of amazing handmade marzipan fruits and ever year I would try one thinking maybe, just maybe, this time it wouldn't taste like THAT. But it did. And it does.
When you like things spangly, you like 'em REAL SPANGLY! These cupcakes remind me of peaches and cream barbie and her flowing peach chiffon dress with the sparkly iridescent bodice. Dreamy!
