I see you little guys with your beady little eyes, sizing me up. You think you're soooo tough because you were just in a 400 degree oven and barely broke a sweat but let me tell you something: I could fit two of you in my mouth at once.
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.
I've had a photo of bird shaped cookies on my computer desktop for approximately a skrillion years now. These cupcakes win. The home decor inspired use of a floral with polka dots is genius! In fact, I may use this as inspiration to redecorate my home. Cupcakes, you win!
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?
St. Patrick's Day is coming up on Thursday! I love green, I love Ireland, I love foods that get all dressed up for the holidays! I'll be regaling you with all the best goodies coming through the tubes this week to help celebrate.
First, plaid! Better get out your tartans and get spiffy!
