This king of the jungle is so sweet when you get him alone and start talking about baking.
Okay, I know it doesn't take a whole heap of talent or time or dedication to make a batch of cupcakes and a batch of cookies made with cookie cutters. I am aware. I am also aware that sometimes simple things can be just as cute as something that is full of blood, sweat and tears. Just think of the frosting stuck to the back of that cookie. Mmmmmmmm.
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!
I think we are nearing the end of the rain(bow) here in Seattle finally. It's still blustery and still showering here and there but we're getting more and more sunshine and soon it will be GLORIOUS! Have you ever witnessed a Northwest summer? They are kind of the best ever. Just don't tell anyone that, we want to hold onto our inhospitable reputation lest more people try to move here.
