Wishing for Spring vanilla mint cupcakes.

January 21, 2008

These cupcakes look like spring personified. Its so damn cold here I’m seriously wishing for some spring. Its like, 17 degrees right now here in NY! It absolutely sucks. So I’m longing for April showers and May flowers and warmer weather. I wanna wear rain boots instead of snow boots.

I was going to make pink lemonade cupcakes but forgot to buy the pink lemonade. Woops. So I went for vanilla mint instead.

I think vanilla mint is way underrated. Most people do chocolate mint, which is great. But vanilla mint is a great combination, that isn’t as heavy as the chocolate mint.

Theres really no recipe for these. I just used a vanilla cupcake recipe, and a vanilla-mint frosting recipe, which is pretty much me making vanilla buttercream and adding mint extract. Both frostings are mint, but the green one is more subtle than the pink.

I will do the pink lemonade cupcakes at some point. I might wait until actual lemonade weather; i.e. when its warm. Next on my list are either coconut cupcakes or root beer. I’m actually dying to try the root beer cupcakes but for the life of me I cannot find root beer extract. Maybe I haven’t looked hard enough? Tell me where I can find this elusive extract, please.

    But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using WordPress
    on a variety of websites for about a year and am anxious about switching to another platform.

  11. Today, I went to the beach front with my kids. I found a
    sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell
    to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  12. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  13. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a lot about this, like you wrote the book
    in it or something. I think that you can do with some pics to drive the message home a little
    bit, but instead of that, this is magnificent blog. A great read.
    I’ll certainly be back.

  14. The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my apple ipad and tested to see if it can survive a
    40 foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share
    it with someone!
