News from my kitchen: On Labor Day my aunt drove down from Salt Lake City to make enchiladas. Yum! To thank her for all the work she did I attempted to make a desert that went along with her theme. Mexican candy is often a little spicy so I made a HOT chocolate cupcake spiced with cayenne, cinnamon buttercream, and topped with a red hot.
However, having never made anything quite like this before I decided bite size cupcakes might be a good idea. . . especially since they were HOT. This allowed everyone to taste without feeling obligated to consume copious amounts. I couldn't help but doubt the success of these controversial cupcakes so I also made back ups. Lemonade cupcakes with a raspberry center and topped with a light whipped cream cheese topping. I so enjoy baking. My dad's birthday is a week from today and I have big cupcake plans!
Other news: I cut my hair off! It was so long that I had to keep it tied back in a ponytail or Andrea would grab fistfuls and snatch me bald. The ponytails gave me headaches because of the weight of my hair. I've been wanting to chop it off for months, but it seemed every time I saved up a little money to do so some emergency required it. Finally, Paul just told me to do it.
