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.
Someday I want to coat my whole arm in icing and dip it in a vat of sprinkles. I wouldn't know what to do next, sadly, once I'm thoroughly spackled with hardening icing and sugary bits. I wouldn't want to eat it, I just want to take pictures of it maybe and call myself "Ol' Donut Arm". I guess just a donut will do.
Green and purple are a good color match. Of course if you want to get into the full tertiary you could add some orange to round things out but I think this is looking pretty nice. Do you care? No? Either do I. Just eat it!
I don't know what happened 100 times for this cake to be necessary, but I am so glad that it did! Dressing a cake up like a cake in a stack is pretty genius, it almost makes me believe all the cake lies.
There has been some pretty severe snowy weather all over the country lately, let's take advantage of it! Have you ever made your own ice cream out of the snow in your own yard? I haven't, but I'm hoping we get another dumping of powder at some point so I can try my hand at this nearly instant, customizable snack. Talk about being seasonal, this is one of the most ecological dishes I've ever seen!
