Ooh I wonder what kind of sweet treasures these little bun buns are hiding in their delicious chocolate bodies?
It's a bee theme today! I love the shallow little pool of sticky honey on top of these sugar cookie capped cupcakes. Honey is a flavor that just doesn't get enough attention. It's so flowery and delicate and amazing. And to think little BEES make it! They are like little stinging magicians!
It's almost time for one of my favorite holidays, St. Patrick's Day! I'm not concerned with my Irish heritage or collecting kisses or wearing green (though I do look very nice in green). No, I'm excited about my good friend Matt's corned beef. he cures a crapload of brisket and cooks it all day, then pairs it with his amazing home made sauerkraut and mashed potatoes and soda bread and Irish cheddar and dark beer and ohhhhhhh... I better get to the gym, I'm fixing to pack on a few pounds.
I love the motif of kind of spiky flowers like this on baked goods. It contrasts nicely with the soft roundness of the cake itself, don't you think? I don't know much about flowers but I bet you guys do; are there real life spiky flowers like that out in the wild?
