Anyone regal enough to have whiskers made of Pocky definitely deserves to be crowned the king of all baked goods AND the jungle.
It's almost Spring, right? Why else would they be cranking up the air conditioning in here? It must be because we're expecting lots of flowers and sunshine and warm breezes, yes? This chance to use my office Snuggie must be a sign of good times ahead. More flowery cupcakes please.
I'm not much of a baker. I get intimidated by the exactness of measurements and ratios and temperatures and timing so my lovely Kitchen Aid mixer stands unused like a really fancy decoration in my kitchen. That is, until I made my first batch of muffins! Muffins are so easy! They take almost no work and I can practically make them with my eyes closed! Strawberries are in season, I think this will be my new favorite.
The killer here, the detail that puts it all over the top and makes even me, who is not a Disney fan, say AWWWWW is the little white circles on the cupcake bases. Just like Mickey's pants buttons! It's tiny touches like this that make me love love love my job every day.
Have you guys ever heard of using Jell-O to color popcorn? I'm seriously intrigued! I'm a big fan of caramel corn, chocolate corn, kettle corn, why not a little fruit flavor now and again? I think cherry popcorn could be a pretty fantastic treat. BRB, buying Jell-O.
