Midweek musings

It's Wednesday. I dont know how these weeks all mush together. I need more sleep. Im not sure what's wrong, but EVERYONE is grumpy and unhappy.

I made cupcakes 4 clara this week. I missed "cupcake week" on Martha Stewart by a week! The frosting was amazing; it tasted like light and airy strawberry ice cream. It was a strawberry buttercream from Martha's website. I ended up using 3/4 cup butter instead of 1 cup, and I used a big jar of organic strawberry preserves. My frosting was a bit runnier than I would have liked, so I'll try to add maybe less butter next time? Any ideas? Ming--cooking chef man... advise me!

As a side note, I have no idea where the picture above is from, but I found it on my phone while I was on the bus, and I figured I'd blog it :)

Cupcakes - yaaaay! Better yet, they make me think of muffins, which I believe to be a better balance of sweet and buttery. I can't wait 'til I get home and can bake a batch of blueberry for my gluttonous consumption. Relatedly, coffee here sucks and I'm eager to make a ginormous pot to enjoy my muffins with.

Youre a much better blogger than evan. In fact, I may have to stop thinking of him as a blogger.
