Cupcakes! This week’s heavenly cake bakers choice leaves behind the spun sugar, the fancy chocolate glazes, the water baths, the chiffons, and goes back to good old-fashioned cupcakes. Then again, I’m not really sure there’s anything old-fashioned about cupcakes, but they sure are good, and easy to make. Especially if you have some sort of leftover frosting in the freezer.
Ok, so I’m a bit late this week, and I don’t really have a whole lot to say about this week’s cake, either. I don’t really have pictures, either, because my front USB port is being taken up by my iPod, which is getting a firmware upgrade, and I don’t feel like crawling around behind my computer to plug into another port for a couple of not-terribly interesting pictures. If you want to see how it’s supposed to look, go look at Marie’s blog. I made this week’s cake as cupcakes, partly because Jay seems more inclined to eat the leftovers if they’re in cupcake form, and partly because we had friends over for a bonfire on Saturday night, and I thought throwing cupcake wrappers on the fire would be a little more convenient than losing plates in the snow.
