I have a confession.
I like baking.
There ain't no crime in that.
I'm a versatile blogger if anything -
blogging about my workout one day - cupcakes the next.
It's how I roll.
I recognize that not all of you want to suck on brussels sprouts and orange slices while swinging kettlebells.
I still love ya.
Today has been a lovely day - the sun is shining in a way that makes you want to get your seeds organized and dream of seeing little rows of lettuce popping out of the soil.
Aaron has been with me all day - and I'm sure you can tell by the photos.
I told him that my blog has declined a great deal since he decided to leave the Marmie Learnatorium and go to the 'Public School'.
Glenco just finished a brake job on the 1973 Maverick and is dozing on the couch.
I'm in the kitchen roasting a humanly raised, organic chicken.
Now - call me crazy - but how is it any different once the birds have been killed?
You raise them humanly, and you still kill them and roast them at high temperatures??
I'm so on the fence about meat in general.
But this post is about cupcakes.
You can put your search for the perfect chocolate cupcake to rest my friends.
A tender crumb.
Quick and easy.
Frost them with gobs of this:
1 stick of butta
2/3 c cocoa powder
1/3 cup of milk
1 t vanilla
3 cups of powdered sugar
Everyone who's anyone that's tasted them has declared them the best ever.
Now - this video might be a little disturbing - yes - I have the spatula full of frosting very close to my mouth as I'm singing right on top of it - rest assured that these cupcakes were consumed by family only.
I don't breathe all over cupcakes that I give to friends.
Or do I?
